Less than a month later, his company locked the office down and gave notice that all employees were to work from home for the foreseeable future as a pandemic began to spread across the globe. As a massage therapist, who frequently sees desk-related injuries, I could tell this was a recipe for disaster. As fate would have it, my husband is now seeing a chiropractor three times a week and me for massage once a week for the next three months, to aid in healing his severe neck and back pain. Consequently, we have also seen an uptick in office-related injuries.
While massage can be a key factor in decreased pain and increased muscle function from these injuries, there are also some easy steps you can take to ensure your home set up minimizes your risk. Be sure your legs have plenty of space to stretch out as needed, and you can plant both feet firmly on the floor with ease.
This keeps your neck from having to strain to look at the screen, and also helps to discourage slouching which is the main cause for upper back pain while working at a desk. With out needing to commute to work, walk from your car into your building, to and from your desk, in and out of meetings, back and forth from the break room, etc.
Set an alarm every hour or more to step away from your monitor, look outside, and get some stretches in. Some employers are even allowing their team to take items from their work desk home!
Our ocular nerve starts at one eye, wraps all the way around the back of the head to the base of the skull, and back to the other eye. Knowing this, eye strain can trigger headaches. Something as simple as turning on a lamp behind your monitor can help!
Even at the most ergonomically sound desk, computer work can cause tension, stress and fatigue to your muscles. Getting a massage also gives you a safe excuse to get out of the house! Rest assured, most massage clinics are upholding the recommended safety and cleanliness procedures outlined by the Washington State Department of Health.
