Over the last 8 weeks, I have heard this phrase over and over again. With all the health concerns out there, many of my patients are forced to work from home, which means no more ergonomic office set up, with a great chair and desk. Some of them have great home offices, most of them have a dining room table and a chair at best, a sofa or bed at worst.
When you have to work, hunched over a computer for hours at a time, the muscles in your upper back, shoulders and neck are going to hurt. It may start with just stiffness in your neck, tightness in your shoulders, or just pain when you change positions. After working like this for a few weeks, you go from discomfort and stiffness to outright pain.
