Take Frequent Breaks
- A 60 second break every 20 minutes is ideal. Change positions regularly to give your muscles the rest needed to support you better when you return to your work. For example, if you’re sitting, stand up and if you’re bending over, stand and arch backward.
- 30-minutes briskly on a flat surface – Its important to keep your body’s circulation working well. This helps to increase healing. If pain arises take breaks as needed.
- Should your pain become severe, apply ice to the area for 20 minutes. Do not put directly on the skin.
