Working from home often means longer hours in a less ergonomic environment, leading to back and muscle pain. Understanding the root causes can help in addressing these issues effectively.
Seated Spinal Twist:
While sitting, cross your legs and twist your torso. Hold for 15 seconds each side. This helps in loosening the lower back.
Shoulder Blade Squeeze:
Sit upright and pull your shoulder blades together. Hold for 10 seconds. Repeat throughout the day to relieve upper back tension.
On all fours, alternate between arching and rounding your back. This simple yoga pose relieves tension in the spine.
Lie on your back with knees bent. Flatten your back against the floor by tilting your pelvis. Ideal for strengthening lower back muscles.
Adjust Your Chair:
Ensure your feet are flat on the ground and your knees are at a 90-degree angle.
