Let’s face it: Working from home can be a pain in the neck—trust me, I should know. As someone with chronic back pain, I’m all too familiar with spending my days in excruciating pain if I moved the wrong way during a workout class or slept in a weird position. Ever since I started working from home, I’ve encountered more back and neck pain, as well as debilitating headaches that the strongest ibuprofen can’t cure.
I know I’m not the only one dealing with a lot of back pain. If you’re spending your days slumped on your couch or hunched over your computer, there’s a good chance you’re experiencing some discomfort. According to Keiko Finnegan, doctor of chiropractic at Kinfolk Optimal Living, sitting around the house all day can do a lot more damage than poor posture.
