Picture this. You have just finished up your long day of work and chores and just when you are about to take a well-deserved goodnight sleep for the next day, a sharp pain runs through your neck and lower back, and you start recollecting all the things that might have caused it. Is it your posture during the day, travel fatigue, or all the excessive running around that may have caused it!

Domestic chores, office work, and commute are something one can’t run from. These can contribute to an increase in pain in the back, neck, knees, and wrist which can be tough both mentally and physically. Pain keeps you from functioning at your best. It’s your worst enemy when it comes to productivity or rest. So, let’s look at what causes it and how one can deal with it smartly while living their daily life.1

Here are few of the most common causes of pain:

  1. Bad posture
  2. Sitting for long periods of time in an uncomfortable chair
  3. Standing for long durations
  4. Carrying heavy bags
  5. Not taking frequent breaks in your long shift
  6. Lack of exercise

Do you resonate with any of the above-mentioned causes?

Don’t worry! We’ve got your back when it comes to dealing with these problems. Read on to know how you can face them without any worries.2

1. Ensure your bag doesn’t burden you

Our bags contain everything important in the world for us to run smoothly through the workday. From laptops to tiffin boxes to water bottles and sometimes even heavy files and books. While the job of the bag is to carry all of this but when done incorrectly, it can weigh down your shoulders and lead to back, neck, and shoulder aches. This happens when one uses a one-shouldered bag or a sling and therefore, these should be avoided. Backpacks are the most suited forms of bags to use as they balance out the weight on your shoulders. Backpacks with cushioning work best and they ensure your back is comfortable as you shoulder the heavyweight.

2. Posture is key

When we sit for a long time at our desk, we forget to sit up straight and end up slouching. Therefore, it’s important to keep yourself in check and ensure your back is straight, you have your chin up and your shoulders out. You can also take the help of a pillow and support your back; in case you’re having difficulty sitting straight.3

3. Timeout

It’s essential to take breaks every 30-60 minutes by taking a walk around your office and adding some basic stretching exercises like neck circles and chin tuck along with low-level exercises into your routine for better muscle and joint health. When you move around, your muscles that are stiffened are relaxed and prevent any back, joint or neck pain. Even if you can’t take breaks every hour, you can add movement to your routine by walking around your office instead of sitting in one place when you’re on a call.

4. Identify aches and treat them

Pain is often our body’s way of telling you something is wrong so never push yourself and take time to recover. For efficient and faster pain relief, be it for your back, neck, or joint pain, keep Volini Pain Relief Gel by your side. Formulated with 1% Diclofenac and the quick-action Nanogel formula, it gets absorbed quickly into the skin and helps in ensuring faster pain relief, thereby helping you to bounce back. However, if the pain persists for a longer duration kindly contact a doctor.

Along with this, you can also make small changes in your routine like:

  1. Whenever you are taking a call, walk instead of sitting in one place
  2. Set an alarm every hour to take a 5-minute walk when sitting in one
    place and working
  3. Take the stairs when you can
  4. Consume protein to strengthen your muscles and bones
  5. Engage in exercises like swimming, dancing, cycling, etc to have fun while keeping fit

When you have no time for pain, you need to be a step ahead of anything that can cause it. Do so by following these steps3 and keeping Volini Gel handy incase pain strikes.
