Home & Office Best Practices to for Neck & Back Pain

When it comes to the well-being of your back and neck, you can never be too safe. Even though you may not be able to come in and see us every week, we are constantly uploading new videos and posts that help you take preventive measures demonstrating how you can stay healthy while at home or in the job.

Working from home is rapidly becoming the new norm of our lives and often don’t keep in mind the health of our body, back, and neck. Believe it or not, there are a few things that you can do that truly make a difference. Here are a few tips to stay healthy when working at home:

>Dedicate a proper working space

No matter how comfortable it may be, it is extremely important that you do not work from your bed or couch. The ideal working space, whether it be on a laptop or a desktop, you should be sitting in a chair where your back is at a 90-degree angle and the device you are working on is on a flat service where your head is also at a 90-degree angle.

>Stretch and move around

When you are in the groove with your work, it can sometimes be difficult to take a break, but it is extremely important to do so. Sitting at a desk for extended periods of time can do some serious damage to not only your neck and back but also your head. That is why it is essential that you take a break from staring at the screen and move around a bit.

>Practice stress techniques

Keep your mind and body at 100% by practicing proper stress techniques like developing a strong sleeping pattern, daily activities like exercises and yoga, and family time.

Exercise of the Week – Unilateral Sciatic Nerve Flossing

Sciatica affects a lot of people these days & all this sitting while binge watching seasons of your favorite shows on Netflix isn't helping! 👩‍💻📺 When the muscles surrounding the lumbar spine & gluteals get tight, its common that the sciatic nerve can get caught or pinched. This then causes sciatica which can elicit discomfort in the lower back, gluteals & even all the way down the legs & into the feet! 👣✅ One exercise we can try to help relieve some tension is to "floss" the sciatic nerve. This exercise is not a comfortable one but can be used & help the nerve glide a littler easier. ✅ But this exercise of eliminate sciatica alone, we must also perform the correct hip movements to help get the tension of the nerve. Overtime though, this drill can be used as a test to see if range of motion is improving. ✅ Ideal range of motion for this exercise will have the lower back pressed up against the wall with the leg held straight. As you can see in the video, I don't have the mobility to press my lower back against the wall so more flexibility work must be done.✅ If you are or have dealt with sciatica before we highly recommend adding this to your daily routine to help relieve or prevent these symptoms from progressing to even bigger issues.#ThinkChiropractic #getadjusted #physicaltherapy #health
