Has anyone successfully managed to get rid of lower back pain whilst working from home? I’ve invested in a decent ergonomic chair, try and sit with good posture and have a standing desk which I use for c.1 hour per day. Any other tips?

There‘s no way around working out and regular stretching.

-Foam roll your butt and legs - do hot yoga -Strengthen your abs. Lower back pain is often due to weak abdominal muscles. Consistently do some planks (3 sets for 30-60 seconds), butterfly kicks, and reverse hooks. Google it

Build up core strength and stand up more often

This. Core strength is huge for back pain, particularly if you're overweight in any way. Also, your mattress contributes heavily to daily back pain. Don't go cheap with a mattress. Adulting 101.

1 hour standing is nothing. Should be 50/50 split

Stretching is key. I do the childs pose and the upward-facing dog every morning right when I wake up. Takes about 30 seconds but well worth it.

I had to see a chiropractor when starting to have back pains WFH. It has helped. But I’ve also learned to stretch and get up more. I also invested in a hypervolt which I use almost every day; I don’t really go to the chiro any longer

Thanks everyone, very much appreciated. I’ll definitely incorporate morning stretches and core exercises in to my working day

Physical therapy. Worked for me.
