Avoiding Back and Neck Pain while Working from Home
Updated: May 22
After six months of working on laptops from home, it is past time to take care of your back and neck so you aren't in constant pain. Poor posture at a computer over time can cause back pain, neck pain and headaches. I made this video to teach you about avoiding pain while working from home.
If you are having neck pain and tension in your upper back, now would be an excellent time to finally purchase a docking station. Laptops do not allow both the keyboard and screen to be at the proper height for you to feel good. Ergonomic rules dictate that your keyboard is at the proper position in relation to your arms and your screen is at the proper height to your eyes. Ignoring these rules will cause you neck and back pain.
There are many affordable sit stand desks that can also help you improve your work station. Remember the shock absorbing mat to help your spine feel better and provide a good framework for you to stand on. It's important that throughout the day you change the desk position. Constantly standing isn't much better than constant sitting.
The video below contains a variety of suggestions to avoid pain and stiffness in your neck and back due to too much time at your computer. Please check out my website for more tips https://www.activefamilychiropractic.com or book online at https://www.activefamilychiropractic.com/booking-calendar
