Experiencing back or neck pain? Have you been working or studying from home for the last few months? Consider your desk or workstation set-up. An ergonomically sound office station should include the following: back support, wrist rest, arm rests, and a properly aligned chair height to monitor height. Check out this photo for some information on how this might look in your home. If you are having trouble building a comfortable space—be creative! Setting your monitor on a stack of books or placing a binder under your feet are excellent ways to ensure proper positioning throughout your workday.
As experts in movement analysis, physical therapists can assist you in correcting your posture, repetitive movements, and treating any pain you might have developed while working remotely. To schedule an appointment with ApexNetwork, call 877-224-4354.
