Tame Work-From-Home Physical Stress With Chiropractic Care

home office at breakfastIn this new era of remote work comes many freedoms, such as conducting conference calls in your favourite pyjamas or slippers. However, the shift to remote work has seen an uptick in physical stress on the body, primarily due to increased sedentary behaviour and workspaces that lack ergonomic considerations.

The Shift to Remote Work and Its Impact on Spinal Health

Many people have work setups that are less than ideal. For instance, slouching on a sofa while using a laptop can lead to a lack of lumbar support and increased strain on the neck and shoulders. Similarly, sitting at a kitchen table may mean chairs that aren’t height-adjustable, causing the hips and knees to be misaligned.

Even a make shift desk in a bedroom can result in improper screen height and chair positioning, leading to hunched shoulders and forward head posture. Each of these common remote workspaces can contribute to discomfort and long-term musculoskeletal issues if not properly addressed.

The solution? Regular chiropractic care.

Chiropractic Care for Physical & Other Types of Stress

Chiropractic care offers a bespoke solution to these work-from-home woes. After thoroughly assessing lifestyle and postural considerations, Dr Ron Zukerman (Chiropractor) can tailor a program to address individual needs. This could involve specific adjustments to relieve neck and lower back pain, addressing these stressed areas, and bringing relief.

On a deeper level, chiropractic adjustments can influence the function of your nervous system, helping to shift the body from a state of excessive stress, or ‘fight or flight’ mode, to a state of ‘rest and recovery’.

The Importance of Work-Life Balance and Movement

Maintaining a healthy work-life balance and incorporating movement into your daily routine goes a long way in promoting spinal health. Simple changes, like taking regular breaks to stand and stretch, improving workspace ergonomics, and doing moderate exercise, can significantly reduce stress levels. It’s all about balancing lifestyle and good management – the key to dealing with stress effectively.

Remember, a healthy spine is a key component of overall wellbeing, enabling you to perform at your best in the digital workspace. Contact Back In Care Chiropractic today to book an appointment.
