Working from home certainly has its challenges. One of the biggest is the physical discomforts that can come with it.
In our homes, many of us are not working in ideal environments. We’re using makeshift office setups that can be fine for shorter periods of time but weren’t meant to be used for several hours in a row, day after day. This can cause some very real issues.
Based on this poor posture and workstation setup, many people end up with headaches, back pain, neck pain and/or wrist pain. Others find themselves looking for ways to decrease stress and increase their overall health and well-being. Maybe you can relate.
Short of overhauling our home office space and investing in new furniture to ensure a perfect ergonomic fit, what else can be done to reduce the aches and pains many of us are experiencing?
The following therapeutic treatments can help.
Physiotherapy works to reduce pain and improve your overall level of functioning. You can increase your flexibility, movement and strength, restore physical function and prevent future injuries. It can help with headaches, neck pain, back pain and muscle weakness, among other concerns.
Thin, gentle needles penetrate the skin, triggering specific points on the body that correlate to tissues, organs, glands and bodily functions. The procedure is safe and minimally invasive. Acupuncture can help with a wide range of conditions, including lower back pain and migraines. Needle-free alternative treatments are also available.
Naturopath Doctors (ND) are medically trained doctors who specialize in natural treatment and healing. Your ND will conduct a thorough assessment, recommend lab testing, and develop treatment plans for any acute or chronic conditions. A Naturopath’s approach is always 100 per cent personalized.
After being home for a year and making the best of your situation, it’s time to make your health and wellness a priority. If you have been experiencing stiffness, pain or strain, help is available.
