Physiotherapy Treatments for Desk Workers
Spending all Day at The Desk?
Working in an office is usually characterised by long hours of sitting, often in front of a computer, but also in meetings, in an office, and even when you are on break. In fact, if you work in an office, chances are you spend your entire office hours bound to one desk, with only a few minutes in between for rest breaks.
When you spend too much time in a sedentary position, it can lead to a long list of health complications including chronic diseases and premature death. And while regular deskbound office work will pose little harm when done for short periods of time, you should be aware of the long-term consequences.
Of course, regular exercises will mitigate some of the effects of sitting in a spot for too long, but the truth is that very few people have the time or inclination to work out, and even those that do so, are not doing enough exercises.
If you have started experiencing pains and discomfort as a result of the long time you spend in a sedentary position at work, now is a good time to take a closer look at your work habits and address the situation before it escalates. You should also begin to seriously consider physiotherapy.
Common ways to avoid deskbound complications
If you do an occupation that require you to spend long periods of time on a chair, there are a number of activities you can engage in to reduce the effects of this sedentary position.
Below are a few tips that if followed properly, will help you avoid common deskbound complications while improving your work productivity.
- Frequent rest breaks: Ensure that you take regular rest breaks after working steading for a few hours. Get into the habit of spending at least a few minutes away from your desk every few hours to give your muscle some time to recover. Also, learn to take your meals away from your desk.
