Aches and Pains Caused by Working From Home? We Can Help!

Support for Staff Working Remotely

We are now rapidly approaching the anniversary of the start of the first national lockdown back in March 2020. A whole year has passed since many people started working from home, and as restrictions stay in place, many will still be working from home for some time yet.

Many of us aren’t equipped with ergonomic chairs, adjustable desks or even a permanent workspace at home, so we’re having to make do with temporary work stations such as the dining room table or the kitchen counter. All of this is a minefield for body aches and pains due to bad posture and a less-than-ideal work setup.

We’ve put together the following links to help support you as you continue working remotely.


Holistic online classes

When working from home, it’s important to inject movement into your day, especially with varied workstation setups. Our range of holistic classes are great for unwinding, relaxing or simply getting you up and moving. Join our instructors in a range of sessions including mindfulness, desk workouts, yoga and stretching. We’ve even filmed a Bedroom Bootcamp which is centered around exercising in a small space.

Our Vimeo library also contains loads of at-home workout videos – conditioning, dance, and cardio sessions will help keep you active at home.

The Kent Sport Physiotherapy Clinic remains open throughout the current restrictions, and offers online or face-to-face physiotherapy appointments. Our experienced physiotherapist, Victoria Annis, has helped multiple clients with back pain and other issues throughout the pandemic and is available to staff, students, and the public.
