Are you struggling with a sore neck, back or headaches?

This is the reality for many people working from home. Since Covid-19 hit in 2019, many of us have become veterans of working from home. We have been stuck sitting on our kitchen stools, couches or in bed for prolonged periods of time. If you are beginning to read this and it is starting to sound more and more like yourself or someone you know, keep reading!

Here at Longevity Exercise Physiology Drummoyne, EdgecliffMarrickvilleCastle HillRandwickPymbleBalmain, Kingsgrove, Neutral Bay, Coburg – Melbourne, and Barrie, Ontario – Canada  we wanted to acknowledge that working from home can be tough and exhausting. Most people think that it is largely about their workplace set up and end up spending lots of money buying new chairs and desks, when in reality, it is the lack of time they are spending on exercise and making their bodies stronger.

“As humans, we were born to move. Working from home increases our sedentary time.”

It may not always be our desks or chairs and, just be the limited amount that we move. As humans, we were born to move. Working from home increases our sedentary time due to not partaking in incidental activity around the office. When you are sitting at home especially, your space isn’t tailored directly for you. Your work desk may be too high or too low and causing poor posture. This can lead to muscle groups becoming “tight”, “stiff” and “contracted”, resulting in muscle compensation, poor movement patterns and muscle pain.

“As we increase the strength of our muscles, if done consistently, it may help to minimise the risk of muscular tightness and chronic injury.”

The importance of seeing an Exercise Physiologist and conducting aerobic & strength training aims to improve muscular toughness and the ability to withstand metabolic stresses. As we increase the strength of our muscles, if done consistently, it may help to minimise the risk of muscular tightness and chronic injury. Exercise Physiologists will be able to objectively assess your neck, shoulder and trunk range of motion and prescribe individualised movements and stretches that will subsequently decrease pain sensations and muscle tightness.

We would like to get you moving during your working week when you are stuck working from home.
