We've all had to adapt to the Covid19 situation in unique ways over the past year, and for many of us without a study, this has meant setting up a makeshift office in our homes. Whilst this has presented its own challenges, from having to carve out a quiet corner in a busy family space to learning how to juggle remote working and home-schooling, it is probably our backs that will have suffered the most.
Unfortunately, many will have been left with longer-term problems caused by inappropriate seating and workstation height. Few of us own ergonomic office chairs of any sort, let alone those specifically designed for the contours of our back, so it's no wonder that this area will be due some extra attention in the coming months.
With the move back to the office looking likelier, hopefully, other areas of our lives will start returning back to normal soon. But for those who have been left with lasting muscle strains, now is the time to start thinking about how to help your back get back on track. By incorporating furniture that is designed to support the delicate structure of the trunk, the home can truly become a place of rest and recuperation as your body heals itself.
We have therefore put together a list of the three furniture upgrades that will make the biggest difference to your back pain below…
A Firm Mattress
The benefits of a harder mattress are numerous, including improved circulation and breathing, but most importantly, it can encourage the bones, rather than the muscles, to disperse the weight of the body while sleeping, and it allows for a neutral spine position. A heavy-duty mattress that offers firm support, like our Brick Mattress, will provide the utmost comfort for your back, so you can get that much-needed rest.
A Strong Bed Frame
There's little point in buying a firm mattress if the bed frame underneath won't adequately support its weight. With reinforced beds like our classic Wyoming Bed, you can be sure your mattress will be perfectly supported as it works to support you.
A Sturdy Sofa
A lazy evening spent on the sofa shouldn't leave you with aches and pains when you stand up. If your sofa does not offer enough support for your lumbar spine, you could be putting a lot of strain on your lower back, leading to problems over time. A firmer option, like our Extreme Ellerton Sofa, will help to maintain good posture whilst providing enough cushioning for you to relax.
