7 Physio Tips for Keeping Injury-Free While Working from Home
May 18, 2021 | Thomastown Physio
With the current situation as it stands, most of us have been forced into isolation and a temporary Work From Home (WFH) protocol has been enacted.
So if we are now confined to our homes, you best make sure you set yourself up properly if you want to avoid triggering old injuries or creating new ones. Many people will be tempted to hunch over their laptops, slouch in the beds or work from their sofas, which may be comfortable short-term, but problematic in the long-term. If you are going to be in one place for so long, you may as well make it comfortable. 7 EASY TIPS for making your workspace more comfortable:
1. Sit properly
2. Try using a Lumbar Support
3. Elevate your screen to eye height
4. Avoid repetitive rotation
5. Get up and move around
6. Try some easy desk stretches and exercises
7. Ask for a sit/stand desk
So there you have it - 7 tips that you can immediately add into your workspace to rapidly change your working posture and decrease any associated aches and pains.
