Default WFH - Lower Back Pain & Tips

Is work from home giving you lower back pain? Donít use your bed as the workstation

Using your bed as the workstation while working from home amid coronavirus can lead to lower back pain. Read on to know how you can heal it.

1/6

A pandemic brings about unforeseen changes in our lives. It changes the pace of the world. That is what the deadly coronavirus has done to us all. Amidst lockdowns, Ďjanta curfewí, shut schools and work-from-home (WFH) policies, the whole world seems to have come to a standstill. In a WFH scenario, the one blunder that many of us commit, is using our bed as the workstation. This may wreak havoc with your lower back. Some estimates suggest that up to 80 per cent of adults will experience lower back pain at least once in their lives. Donít take this pain lightly because your lower back bears almost half of your body weight. Use a chair and table set up if possible to keep lower back pain at bay. If you canít then follow these tricks to soothe the pain.



2/6

Donít compromise on your snooze time: Sleep is known to boost immunity. This has become all the more important in the time of coronavirus, which is more likely to attack people with a weak defence mechanism. Also, a sound is very effective in back pain alleviation.



3/6

Sit right: Avoid sitting on bed while working. If you canít, make sure your back is rested with the wall or headboard. Use a cushion between your back and the wall or headboard.





Take stretch breaks: Donít keep sitting for long. Get up and move intermittently. A short walk, light stretches or a low-impact activity may help alleviate your back pain during this phase of work from home.



5/6

Resort to an ice pack: Apply ice wrapped in towel in the affected area. This will reduce inflammation. Apart from ice, a heating pad can also be used to relieve muscle pain.



6/6

Get a massage: Consider getting a home massage service. Studies show that gentle massage can work wonders to your lower back pain by relaxing your nerves and muscles.
