Home Office Syndrome is a growing problem during Covid-19. We have the perfect solution for you at Rain Medi Spa & Salon.

Getting Back Pain While Working from Home?

Here’s a few tips to help:
  • View your computer screen with a straight neck  
  • Sit back in your chair
  • When sitting, rest your feet flat on either the floor or a foot support
  • Limit the time you work on your bed
  • Avoid prolonged standing for computer work  
  • Alternate between typing and using voice input
  • Put your screen sideways to a bright window
  • View any paper documents with a straight neck
  • Put your keyboard and mouse or touchpad at a comfortable height

Most acute low backpain results from injury to the muscles, ligaments, joints or discs.  If you’re doing the bulk of your work from home these days you are ten times more susceptible to injuring your back than working at an office desk.  For starters, most of us do not have the space at home to accommodate an ergonomic chair so we end up working at the kitchen table or worse, on our bed or couch.  If you do this for only short periods of time, you might not need to worry – but as our time at home has turned into months you need to change your habits. This article will help give you some preventative advice.

But if you are already feeling the physical strain, the bad news is that you may already be on the road to a debilitating musculoskeletal injury such as a bad back, sore neck and shoulder, carpal tunnel – in general – home office syndrome.  So, what can you do?   Find yourself a reliable RMT (Registered Massage Therapist).  For those of you with a company insurance plan – these services are free.

Take advantage of one of the many massage treatments including:  Swedish Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Aromatherapy Massage, Deep Tissue Massage and Thai Yoga Massage.  Not only will the massage techniques reduce your symptoms – a massage will also melt your tensions away and leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
