No More Back Pain! Alleviating the Aches and Pains of Working From Home
With prolonged hours at the desk and decreased mobility due to the onset of COVID-19, Working From Home (WFH) has taken a toll on our bodies.
How should we prevent and manage neck and back pain? These commonly-asked questions were answered at the first hybrid session of Health & Wellness on 6 January 2022 by Dr Mohammad Mashfiqul Arafin Siddiqui (Medicine ’03), Senior Orthopaedic and Spine Surgeon at Farrer Park Hospital. More affectionately known among his patients as Dr Mash, he also advised attendees on the preventive measures one can take and red flags to watch out for in keeping one’s spine healthy. The session ended with a robust Q&A session with questions from both the cosy, in-person audience along with over 300 online attendees.
