With many employees working from home and many students learning remotely, the demands on our bodies are different now than they have been in the past.
Many of us sit behind a desk, staring at a screen for hours on end to complete our daily responsibilities. Sitting or standing in one place for that many hours over weeks, months, or even years, can significantly impact muscle and joint health.
Looking down at a laptop or tablet to do your work places excess strain on your neck, muscles, vertebra ligaments and tendons, and can contribute to frequent tension and cervicogenic headaches.
Pain and tightness in the neck, upper back, and shoulders can even lead to numbness and tingling in your arms, caused by stress placed on the nerves between your neck and your arms and hands.
Whether poor ergonomics in your home office have caused new or returning pain in your neck, back, or hands and arms, or if you are looking to take preventative measures to maintain your physical health and wellness, Freitag Family Chiropractic will help you improve your Bloomington, MN workspace and prevent troublesome pain or injuries.
