If your work environment has you feeling stiff, achey, scrunched-up, or out-of-sorts, you are not alone. Millions of Americans are spending a lot more time at home, and the coffee tables and kitchen counters that were suitable for occasional work have suddenly become all-day stations.
There are serious potential consequences of these suboptimal setups, and an aching back is just the beginning.
For one, nearly 30 years of research has shown that prolonged sitting is detrimental to health and longevity. And there’s a good chance what you’re sitting on at home isn’t doing your hip flexors or lumbar spine any favors either.
Before your WFH workspace turns you and your spine sideways, spend 10 minutes with Dr. Tom Oddo, a Chiropractic Doctor and Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist in New York. In the video below—part of our Zeel@Work Virtual Wellness program—he’ll show you how to optimize your work environment and your body for maximum health, longevity, and comfort.
