The pandemic and your body

Unfortunately, work-related joint and muscle problems have become more pronounced during the pandemic.

With a rise in the number of people working from home and having to work at inadequate workstations, this has led to an increase in people suffering from carpal tunnel, degenerative disk disease, reduced range of motion, nerve numbness, and muscle weakness.

People adopted a more sedentary lifestyle as they were mostly spending time in just one room. Even your daily commute time can be used to ensure good physical health. When in an office setting, there is always a reason to get up and move, whether it’s to go make a coffee, use the photocopier or to talk to a colleague.

If you have been unwell with COVID you may well have been less active than usual. Some of the treatments that are needed during COVID illness can also put extra stresses and strains on joints and muscles which can cause new or exacerbate ongoing issues.

Previous injuries are also re-emerging as people have had less opportunity to take care of themselves as they would have pre pandemic

Like many medical providers, physiotherapists saw patient visits drop dramatically in early 2020. However, in recent months, our team have seen an increase in clients, many of those visiting for pandemic-related problems having never needed physical therapy before now

With the recent lifting of restrictions and the move to encourage people back to the office, symptoms may well now become more apparent.
