Tuesday 27th April 2021 0:00 AM
Are you suffering neck or low back pain with working from home? Or, are you concerned about your child's posture? If so then this is for you! Throughout the month of May we will be discussing posture and what you can do to help yourself.

“Work from home” has become a way of life in the “New Normal.” While many businesses thought working from home would be a short-term solution, many
industries will continue working from home long term.

Employees are enjoying working from home, they mention they feel less stressed out working remotely and enjoy not having to commute to work everyday.
Less stress and a better work-life balance are positive outcomes from working from home.

The downside of working from home is that more workers are experiencing painful musculoskeletal disorders such as neck pain and back pain.
Recent research shows that 41.2% of home workers reported low back pain, and 23.5% reported neck pain. Neck pain worsened in 50% of workers who are now working from home.

Don’t let your at-home workspace wreck your posture, follow us through the month of May to find out what you can do to help yourself.
