What is Office Syndrome!!!
Hi, my name is Natrada Mahavana, I’m a physiotherapist at BodyConscious at Y wellness.
What is Office Syndrome?
Office Syndrome is a group of symptoms when you have pain and soreness in muscles and fascia or it’s called Myofascial Pain Syndrome. These symptoms mostly found in office workers who have been working in front of computer screens and sitting in the same position for an hour. When the muscle contracted all the time, it will cause a trigger point. Tigger point is a sensitive area in the muscle or connective tissue that becomes painful when compressed depending on the area of muscle.
What is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave Therapy is the most popular and modern treatment. It works by creating acoustic waves which carry high energy to painful spots. The energy can releases the trigger points by promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the muscles and other soft tissues. This will help to reduce the pain and muscle contraction.
How to take care(advisation) after the treatment?
Shockwave Therapy purposefully creates an inflammatory response in injured soft tissue, so you may also experience some soreness in the treated area. Thus, we will use cold therapy to relieve pain by putting a cold pack in the treated area around 20-30 mins for 3-5 days. After that, we recommend doing a stretching exercise given by our physiotherapist every day.
- 1st step/posture/post
- 2nd step/posture/postHold it for 30 seconds, doing 10 times/set, recommend 1-2 set.The number of treatments varies depending on tissue response. You will experience relief right after the first treatment within 24-72 hours. You will typically need to repeat the treatment at least once a week because the effect of the treatment is cumulative (after the first treatment is around 15-20%), depending on the patient’s lifestyle, their posture and severity of the symptom.
