Since mid to late March 2020 most office workers around Melbourne have called their home their ‘new office’ and we bet you originally envisaged this time would be over by now. Instead, the reality is dawning upon many office workers is their ‘home office’ may be becoming more permanent for the foreseeable months, so our OHL Physiotherapy and Myotherapy team wanted to help you maximise your desk set up with this practical checklist.
This checklist hopes to maximise your productivity at this new workspace, as well as concurrently minimising injury risk to your elbows, wrists, back and neck. Let us begin… and yes you are correct in assuming we want you creating this workspace outside of your ‘home living space’ to physically separate your worlds where possible!
With working from home becoming a more permanent reality in the lives of many around Melbourne please do yourself a favour and get your desk reviewing by an OHL Physiotherapist if you are worried. Desk modifications do not need to be overly expensive or complex, but they are most effective if they are individualised to your set up, the nature of your work and whether you have any pains (current or previous). Reach out to our team and we can help you review your set up via pictures in a face-to-face appointment or a video-linking telehealth consult. Contact us if you feel you would benefit from this (or any of our other OHL services like Podiatry or Dietetics) on 9431 5955 or email@example.com.
