Pandemic Posture?

pandemic posture

Pandemic posture: sitting too long in the same position without moving. Slouched forward, rolled in shoulders and forward head posture. This position puts a lot of strain through our joints, discs, ligaments and muscles. It is only a matter of time until this ‘pademic posture’ starts to cause pain.

For some, this will be the first time they have experienced low back or mid-back pain, neck pain or headaches, or dizziness or lightheadedness (or some other problem associated with their poor posture). Others will experience a worsening of an existing problem.

What Can Be Done?

There are a few simple strategies to help reduce the strain placed on your body from pandemic posture:

  • Get up and move more – can you walk around your house when on a conference call with a headset?
  • Drink more water
  • Go outside for a walk everyday – try and hit 10,000 steps a day
  • Set up your work station properly – click here.
  • Use your sit-stand desk if you have one
  • Engage in a regular exercise program
