As many of have returned to working from home, it is important to have a good setup at home to help stay productive and reduce any unnecessary strain on the body. Our Physiotherapists and Chiropractors at Dural Health have seen some amazing setups and some really tragic ones. Based on these, here are some recommendations on how you can make your work from home setup better.
Cervical Radiculopathy is a type of neck pain that happens when the nerves specifically become involved, and can often lead to neck pain that can spread down into the shoulders, middle back, arm, hands, and fingers. Some people even get pins and needles, numbness, and weakness in their hands!
Whilst stretching the neck can help temporarily, many people are unaware that strengthening the muscles of the neck and shoulder (with bands, weights, and even head stands) can actually help reduce neck pain and stop it from coming back.
Dry Needling is a popular technique used by Chiropractors and Physiotherapists that can be useful for people with neck, shoulder, back, hip, knee, and foot pain. Find out how it works, and what conditions Dry Needling can be useful for in this blog post from our Chiropractor Nico Ebilane.
