Work-related upper back, shoulder and neck discomfort are generally observed more in workers with sedentary, desk-based roles. Since March 2020 and the shift to home working, I have noticed an increase in the prevalence of upper back, shoulder and neck discomfort among employees I have carried out DSE assessments with.

In this episode, I am going to identify the potential physical causes of upper back, shoulder and neck discomfort associated with desk-based jobs and the steps you can take to reduce the risk of developing these issues.
