5 Tips from a Chiropractor to save your back while working from your couch

5 Tips From a Chiropractor To Save Your Back While Working From Home

More and more people are working from home now more than ever due to the pandemic. Although this may seem like a good idea and you might find yourself more comfortable working from home, it may cause aches and pains that you are not used to. This could be due to the position you are sitting in while you work from home.

If this is the case, you may want to see your local Richmond, VA chiropractor at Advanced Wellness Center to help relieve your pain. Until you can come in for chiropractic care, here are some things you can do at home to help protect your back.

Do These 5 Things For a Better Back

  1. Sit with your feet flat on the floor. If you cannot reach the floor, try putting your feet on a footstool, box, or a stack of books. This will help to relieve tension in your back.
  2. Do not slouch. Poor posture from sitting on a couch or chair can put pressure on the vertebrae, leading to back pain. Instead, sit back in your chair so your body weight is supported by the chair back. If possible, you can use a lumbar pillow or rolled-up towel behind your back to help.
  3. Keep your computer monitor or laptop at eye level. You can do this by setting your laptop or monitor on a stack of books or boxes.
  4. Do not look down at your phone or another handheld device. This is bad for your neck. Instead, prop your arms up to look at your device screen directly.
  5. Stay active and exercise. Get up from time to time to circulate your blood and stretch your muscles.
