Do you work from home and suffer with neck pain?
Has working from home been a pain in the neck?
After the pandemic many of us have up sticks from the hustle and bustle of the office environment and settled into a desk space at home.
While there are many benefits of remote working, many people have discovered new or worsening neck pain.
We’ve helped many working from home warriors with their troublesome neck pain in our Southampton, Whiteley and Midhurst based clinics.
What causes my neck pain?
Multiple factors can contribute to increasing neck pain. The most common causes for neck pain include: sedentary lifestyle, poor posture, non-ergonomic desk-set up, and stress.
In 2020/21, 45% of workers reporting work-related musculoskeletal disorders, suffered with upper limb or neck pain (Labour Force Survey in 2021).
If you suffer from neck pain you are likely to experience pain that gets worse with prolonged positioning, muscle tension, reduced neck range of movement and headaches.
Our experts based in Southampton, Whiteley and Midhurst will help equip you with all the tools you will need to improve your neck pain and prevent reoccurrence…so you can get back to living a pain-free lifestyle.
