When working from home is a pain in the neck…
and back and shoulders and hips.
Hunching over a small screen for a full workday, days on end, can trigger new musculoskeletal pain and exasperate pre-existing conditions.
People who already work from home have long reported higher levels of back pain. The rest of us, ushered into a recent overload of sitting and restricted movement, can now literally feel your pain. This is especially true if our in-home office environment lacks ergonomic support. (Couch-sitters, pay attention!)
Back pain. Neck pain. Shoulder issues. Joint aches. They are all here with a vengeance.
Addressing these flare ups can help keep you productive and pain-free. Our chiropractic physicians are now able to meet with you through telemedicine, which many insurance companies are covering 100%. Working with a professional, even when you cannot come into the clinic, is an investment in your health that will save you time and money in the long run.

Solutions to Help You Work Safer
When setting up your perfect at-home desk, we recommend following these tips:
- Keep your keyboard directly in front of you, parallel to desk, near edge. Keep your wrists neutral and your mouse directly beside you (ideally, wireless).
- For your monitor, your screen should be 22-26 inches away to reduce eye strain. Keep your monitor directly in front of yourself. Lastly, the height of monitor should be 17-19 degrees above where you are looking.
- For head and neck posture, keep your head over your shoulders in a neutral position to decrease the work load on your “computer muscles. (Your head is an 8-12lb bowling ball…the further away and down you are placing that bowling ball, the harder the neck and upper back muscles have to work to keep it up!)
- Lumbar Support is key. Lumbar support roll should be placed right above the belt line. Lean back onto the roll just enough so ears are in line with shoulder, if uncomfortable, move your bottom forward slightly. We have lumbar rolls available for purchase at all 17 of our locations!
- Take a break and move. While this can be a stressful time for many of us, it is important to think about what matters the most. Without health, we are unable to perform at our jobs to the best ability. Take a break away from the screen, do a few of your favorite exercise, and breathe.
Visit with your provider from home! Telemedicine for Chiropractic Care
Through telemedicine, you can meet with your provider for a live, one-on-one 30-minute visit.
A telemedicine visit is similar to an in-office visit where we asses and discuss your current status and then work on a series of exercises and movements to help maintain your progress and alleviate pain and discomfort.
In response to COVID-19, many insurers are now covering 100% of the costs for telemedicine.
We have a team that’s happy to assist in helping check and understand your benefits. We’re here to answer any questions you may have!
