Tips to prevent back pain while working from home

As many people across the world started to work from home during COVID-19, office furniture may have been replaced by kitchen desks and household chairs. However, the dining room, kitchen table or a spot on the sofa may not have the same ergonomic design as a traditional office setup, which may have caused you low back pain since COVID-19 emerged.

So, what can you do?
Here are 3 preventive steps and evidence-based care methods to help your back to feel better:

Setting Up Your Home Workspace.

To work comfortably for many hours with computer invest in a few practical furniture that will serve to support your physical well-being. For example: choose  height adjustable table ECLIPSE which could improve your comfort, health, and overall productivity. You could use it to work standing up for 15 or 20 minutes every hour or two. It is recommended to stand up for 20 per cent to 30 per cent of the working day. Height adjustable table can help your muscles and joints stay comfortable.

Focus on Posture.

Make sure you are sitting up straight with your knees at a 90-degree angle, with your shoulders in a straight line over your hips and your ears directly over your shoulders. If you’re working at a computer, adjust the screen height to eye level and consider elevating the keyboard to help keep your hands, wrists and forearms in line and parallel to the floor.

Take Breaks.

Get up and move around. Don’t stay in any one position for longer than about 45 minutes. Take a break in the middle of the day for 15 to 30 minutes to exercise. You can do jumping jacks, pushups, or situps to improve your circulation.

These are just a few simple steps you can take to help relieve back pain. If you consider to fill your home with any of our height adjustable desks or accessories then please do get in touch and we’ll respond as soon as we can!
