Now that people are working from home, we know one common injury is lower back pain particularly for those of you who work desk-based jobs and are sedentary.
1. Use a lumbar roll behind your back. Often it can be hard to hold good posture for a prolonged period of sitting at work. Using a lumbar roll reinforces and supports the natural curve of the lower back or lumbar spine. A rolled up towel is a great home-made option.
2. Have regular rest breaks and change positions often. This could mean getting up from your chair or doing some stretches side-to-side or back rotations in the chair. A good way to remember this is to set an alarm periodically on your phone.
3. Perform some basic back stretches and back strengthening exercises at home. Here are some listed below.
