Are you getting pain from working from home? Are you reading this from your laptop sitting on the sofa or catching up on emails from your laptop on the kitchen table?

As the majority of people are now working from home, we are seeing large numbers of patients in the clinic with back ache, neck pain, wrist and arm symptoms and other aches and pains which they have noticed over the last few months since working from home.

We can help you get rid of these aches and pains and prevent further problems by assessing your home workstation remotely.

Even small adjustments  can make a huge difference to your comfort, and, with it being unclear when we might be returning to offices, it’s important to prevent any unnecessary harm or injury to your body during this time.

Here are 9 desk-based exercises you can try at home.

What is a Video Workstation Assessment?

To enable you to get the right set up for your home working, we can provide video home workstation assessments. We have helped hundreds of people since lockdown to achieve a more comfortable and productive work from home life.

These assessments are carried out via Zoom or Facetime, it is your preference. All we need is a photograph of you sitting at your workstation taken from the side which we can analyse prior our assessment.

Our video homeworking assessments are carried out by experienced workstation assessors who are also experienced musculoskeletal physiotherapists so they have a wealth of knowledge about the body and the effects of posture and lack of movement.

Our Chartered Physiotherapists will watch how you work looking at repetitive movements and posture. They will advise on the best layout of your equipment (screen, keyboard, chair, etc.), answer any queries that you have, provide adjustments to your posture and equipment and share desk-based exercises to keep your body moving. If additional equipment is required they can advise on what is suitable for you.

The assessments are £70 each and include an email summary of our recommendations.
