Working From Home

MakNv-5XhGge Working from Home, Work For You               

In these unprecedented times, many of our patients and members of our community may find themselves working from home for an indefinite period of time. While we are all trying to do our bit to stay safe and protect the vulnerable in our community, we also must create spaces at home that support our health and wellbeing.

We at Victoria Park Chiropractic Clinic are here to help. If you need some guidance on how to make working from home, work for you, here are some simple tips you can start using today.

Routine

Set yourself a routine, much like you would if you were still going to work every day. Wake up at the same time every morning, eat meals regularly and set aside time to exercise to help maintain your physical and mental wellbeing.

Set up a productive space

If you have a separate study in your home then look no further, but for many a work set up will usually be on the kitchen table. Try to avoid working on your bed or on the couch so you can separate work from relaxation at the end of the day.

Get the ergonomics right in your workspace by bringing an ergonomic/supportive chair to the table and sitting with your feet either flat on the floor or supported by a footrest. Arms should be relaxed by your side (wrist straight when using mouse and elbows at 90-110 degrees when typing), with you posture relaxed and tall.

If there is an opportunity to be at a standing desk, even better, as this will be helpful for most people. If standing, maintain an upright relaxed posture and use a footrest.

Your eyes should be looking straight ahead at your screen and if you’re working off a laptop, you can do this by having a separate mouse and keyboard and elevating your screen, to help keep your posture straight.

Take breaks

While it’s easy to get lost in the hours of work, it’s important to remember to give both your mind and body a much-needed break. Every 30 minutes or so, get up and do a little stretch or something quick and active like 10 squats or star-jumps. As long as you’re moving!

The Straighten Up app is also a great tool to help get you moving and improving your posture. The app developed by the Australian Chiropractors Association, features a three-minute stretching program designed to help improve your spinal health, posture and overall wellbeing. Download the free app from the App Store or Google Play.

Stay connected

While you are lucky enough to work from home during this period, it can feel a little isolating. Colleagues and friends you would normally see every day, are only a phone call away so stay connected with them by having virtual video meetings, or a casual chat to simply check in with them.

Technology breaks

At the end of your day, try and take a break from technology and screens by going for a walk outside, spending time with those in your home, cooking a meal or taking up a new hobby.

If you would like any further advice or assistance on implementing good spinal health habits while at home, contact us on 8332 4567. We hope you are staying safe during this time.

COVID-19 UPDATE

CORONAVIRUS COVID-19 UPDATE

As you are aware, the public health advice regarding COVID-19 is changing on an almost daily basis and we want to keep you informed with the measures we are putting in place at the clinic.

We will continue to operate providing the high level of care for which we are known, unless advised otherwise by the government. We take the health and safety of our clients and staff very seriously and have always implemented hygiene and infection control, however we will enforce the following protocols at this time:

  • Strict hand hygiene for practitioners (as per WHO guidelines)
  • Disinfect the chiropractic tables in between clients
  • Have hand sanitiser available, as well as the usual soap and water in the bathrooms (soap and water is very effective). Hand towels will be changed regularly
  • Disinfect hard surfaces and high touch areas (eg door handles)

As per the Government advice, please advise us of the following:

  • If you have returned from overseas recently and the date of your return
  • You have a fever, cough, sneeze or have been unwell
  • Have been in contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19

For people needing complete social distancing during this time, and who still require chiropractic care, we would be happy to see you individually on a Saturday afternoon or Sunday. This would be arranged on a case-by-case basis.

We will continue to monitor the situation and if anything changes we will endeavour to inform you as best we can. Until otherwise advised, we will keep the clinic open and can continue to be contacted on 8332 4567.
