5 products to manage pain while at the office

The pain in the back you got from doing yard work or exercising doesn’t take time off to let you work in peace. Unfortunately, if you have aches and pains, you carry them everywhere. It can become distracting at work and make it tough to be productive.

You’d probably love to simply hire a masseuse to come to your office and work on any kinks mid-day, but that’s likely not an option. There are more subtle, office-friendly ways to manage pain while you work. A few products can help you feel better and stronger as you power through your to-do list.

Try these five products for pain management at work.

Experiencing pain at work can make it difficult to get your job done. It’s understandable that you are so focused on back soreness or plantar fasciitis that you can’t tick items off your to-do list like you usually do. Some products can help soothe and reduce pain, and your colleagues may not even notice. Compression socks and sleeves and support belts are subtle. Pillows can not only reduce pain but prevent stiffness in the first place, and using a heating or ice pack on and off can also help. If you’re in severe pain, see a doctor. They can help you feel better and advise further treatment, such as making an appointment with a physical therapist.
