Working in an environment where you are sitting for long periods of the day without much movement can increase your risk of chronic disease and injury as well as the development of musculoskeletal issues from repetitive movements involved in working at computers.
It is important in any occupation that you consider all the ways you can increase your incidental movement to make sure you aren’t experiencing prolonged periods without any movement.
Physiotherapist Mardi Watson and Exercise Physiologist Zoe Bauer have prepared in this video, their favourite 3 exercise for helping those of us who sit at a desk for long periods of the day.
We believe that individualised is always best and you should speak to a health professional to make sure you understand the most appropriate solution for your personal health needs. Come in and speak to one of our experienced physiotherapists for some advice on how you can make your work day more comfortable.
