Low back pain – How to get into bedMarch 19, 2020
So many of us are currently working from our homes. We wanted to share some tips that will not only make your work day more productive and focused, but will also help keep your body strong and pain free. Also, check out our free Ergonomic Self-Assessment, where you can find out some of the challenges with your home office and some easy fixes!
#1: A TIMER
What a game changer! Before we know it, 5 hours can pass without moving our bodies. We recommend setting a timer for 45min- an hour and keep it on your desk. When the timer goes off, get up and move around for 5 minutes
#2: A BAND
A theraband, also known as a resistance band, is a simple tool to use throughout your day. Marina demonstrates a great banded squat to do over your work chair to help keep your back and lower body strong
A lacrosse ball is a perfect tool to help roll out tight muscles. Marina demonstrates a progression for stretching the piriformis and glute muscles. You can also roll the ball under your foot and low back to release tension
Take a second to look around your workspace. Are there things distracting you? By removing clutter in your workspace it will help you stay focused, and on task. Our days can already feel scattered with lots of information and stimuli, so a tidy workspace can be just what you need!
