The global pandemic and worldwide lockdown has resulted in most of us watching and spending more time in front of screens and for longer periods of time. From working remotely in front of a computer to staying updated on news and watching movies to pass the time, we are dependent on screens now more than ever!
In this situation where staying home is the only option for now, increased screen time is almost unavoidable. This increase has affected both our physical and mental health. Some people are facing muscular pains like neck pain and backache, while some are experiencing mental stress and anxiety as a result of the pandemic and excessive news consumption.
While we cannot completely avoid using the screens because of the current situation, we can manage it to reduce the risks of using DSE (Display screen equipment).
Here are some guidelines that can help you cope up with the problems related to DSE and working from home:
MSK Osteopath and Acupuncture are still available for emergency appointments. We are using fully protective measures at our clinics to ensure your safety.
We are still open, and taking all relevant precautions from PHE, adhering to governmental guidelines and my professional bodies.
We are also offering free virtual consultations for patients suffering with pain.
