Loss coming from the same position for hours
The health expert said that there is a special kind of environment and design for working in the office, but people at home do not work in that way. People keep sitting in the same position for hours which has a bad effect on the body. Working on the bed or sofa for hours increases the chances of neck and back pain.
Employees should work on hybrid mode
The expert said that patients should start working on the hybrid mode to get rid of back and neck pain. For this, employees should work in the office for some days in a week and some should work from home. Everyone should prepare an office-like setup before working at home and keep in mind that they must take microbreaks every once in a while.
