Spending more time working from your couch, kitchen counter or home-office? You are not alone. And like you, many are experiencing back pain from chairs and desks that are not exactly ergonomic in design.
Do not worry—there is no need to run out and buy a top-of-the-line chair to manage back pain. Here are some simple tips to try instead:
• Exercise your core: The muscles involved in keeping your spine properly aligned are tied to your core—add some crunches to your daily routine!
• Stretch in the morning and afternoon: Stretching helps to relieve tense muscles that tighten throughout the day.
• Stay hydrated: A dry mouth is not the only sign of dehydration. Our spine has fluid-filled sacs between each bone, which may become a source of pain when not properly hydrated.
