We are here for you when quarantine gets painful.
Weeks of working on the bed or sofa have led to a dramatic increase in backaches, neck pain, and headaches. If you’re currently in pain, this has likely been amplified by the fact that life has become more sedentary for most of us. Without the interruption of a work commute or typical daily movement, your muscles are straining for longer periods.
While we wait (a little longer) for our lives to resume some normalcy, you can reduce stress on your body and provide pain relief starting today.
First, our team is here for you. We are open for in-clinic care with chiropractic and acupuncture.
We also offer virtual visits for both of these services, as well as telehealth for Functional Medicine. When intense pain flares up, you may worry about having to go to a hospital that might already be overwhelmed – or that there is just nothing you can do at the moment and quarantine pain is something you have to get used to.
Our clinics are helping people like you, take control of their health today. We are operating with heightened safety, increased social distancing measures, and remain a safe place for you to get the care you need.Schedule an Appointment
The Four Questions to Ask Yourself About Your WFM Habits
Is your computer screen at eye level?
Placing something underneath your computer can help you relieve tension that occurs when you angle your head downward to read.
What are your elbows doing?
Try keeping them by your sides when you type. Using an external keyboard and mouse can help keep your elbows level. When reading from your cellphone, rest your elbows towards your chest and hold the phone at eye level. If taking calls, consider a headset (or ear buds) to avoid crunching your neck.
How are you sitting?
Avoid slouching by sitting on your “sit bones,” the bones at the bottom of your pelvis. Maintain a slight arch in your lower back and utilize lumbar support, such as our lumbar roll or even rolled-up fabric.
What can you do to mix it up and move?
Finding different areas in your home to work while sitting, standing, and even walking can help you work in different positions. And setting a schedule for regular movement breaks – even to just do household chores – will help!
