Office syndrome in Bangkok

Naturally recover from irritating office syndrome symptoms and return to working comfortably again

Do you feel constant aches and pains in your neck, back, knees and more, when you sit for long hours in front of a desk? You are not alone because our sedentary habits at work result in various painful conditions that affect different parts of the body. These issues are grouped together under the term “Office Syndrome” but so many people choose to ignore them instead of dealing with the problem. Instead of passing it off as “just stress” or a “long day at the office”, you should treat your problem before it becomes chronic.

Instead of doing this, people invest in ergonomic office furniture, take breaks to stretch or even try exercising at the office but while these are good habits that might prevent further issues, they do not address the issue that is already bothering you. Maybe you think your office syndrome pain was just caused by that one stressful period where you had to work a lot – but really it was caused by years and years of sitting and poor posture that have now caused a series of new issues.

If you don’t know what you’re doing — office syndrome can be very confusing and because of this, many people just end up accepting it as ‘part of life’ — as if it’s normal, and ‘just the way it is’.

If you’re suffering from office syndrome, here are 6 more reasons why it could be lasting longer than it should:

If any of these have happened to you or if you know you need help but don’t know where to start or which treatment is best for you, we invite you to book a call with one of our specialists to find out what can be done to help you. The fact that you’ve tried any or all of these things already is a good thing because when you know what does not work, you are closer to finding what does.

'Form Physio was great! From that first assessment, to dealing with tight muscles, imbalances, bad posture, and bad habits, they teased out and addressed all my problems over time'
Office Syndrome
I came in to the clinic in January with a bad case of repetitive strain injuries in my shoulders, arms, back, wrists, and neck. Basically the result of years of long hours at the computer. I couldn't type for more than 10 minutes at a time without pain - a bit of a problem given the PhD thesis I was supposed to be writing! I had been to physios before and they had never really given me a lasting solution. But thankfully, Form Physio was great! From that first assessment, to dealing with tight muscles, imbalances, bad posture, and bad habits, they teased out and addressed all my problems over time. Mukkie my physio was patient, encouraging, resourceful and overall a great physio. Even when there ups and downs in my recovery process, as with any recovery process, she handled them really well. The place itself was clean, worked exactly on time, and fun (shout out to Boss, Hugo, Ice and Gun, the other physios at the clinic!). 6 months later and most of my pain has disappeared, and I can work more-or-less as normal again (with much better habits). I still have some distance to go to get back to 100%, since these injuries developed over a very long period of time, and I my stint at Bangkok has come to an end. But even here, Mukkie set me up with an exercise routine that I could keep working on once I leave, and gave me the knowledge I need to keep on the path to full recovery. My thanks also to Rikhi on the admin side of things who went above and beyond helping me with my insurance claim and who takes feedback very seriously. Form Physio is a remarkable outfit, and they are always looking for ways to grow and improve. Overall, I cannot recommend them enough! Give them a go!

'I feel so incredibly lucky to have found such professional, knowledgeable and committed physio'

Office syndrome & Diatasis recti
I have been working with Khun Mint, my physio since arriving in Bangkok - as someone who has suffered from chronic pains/fibromyalgia for as long as I can remember, having worked with many different physios in the UK and Switzerland, I can tell good physios immediately. And with Khun Mint, I have been so impressed with the mastery of knowledge and technique. Every different type of problems I have had (neck, back, hands, arms, posture, post partum/c-section, etc) she has always known exactly what to do, and the results were immediate. I started working with her on a regular basis because I knew I couldn't do it alone, and she has exceeded all expectations. I now have a completely different understanding of how I use my muscles (mostly the wrong ones to compensate weaknesses in other areas), my (mis)alignment, as well as working on strengthening those muscles and it has really helped with my pains - where I am no longer managing my pains but really eliminating the root causes bit by bit. It has been one of the best things I have discovered in Bangkok and I feel so incredibly lucky to have found such professional, knowledgeable and committed physio here- thank you.

'I would definitely recommend Form Physio and Rehab'

Migraines & Office syndrome
Before my sessions I had a lot of shoulder and neck pain and also regular migraines. Mint has worked hard to reduce the pain and she has also given me exercises to work on at home to help me get stronger. She is extremely patient and supportive - which I really appreciated. After attending physio sessions I also started acupuncture sessions with Fair (with a bit of encouragement as I hate needles!). The acupuncture sessions were so relaxing, I even fell asleep in some of them and so far my migraines have not returned which I am hugely thankful for! I would definitely recommend Form Physio and Rehab - the venue and surroundings are a bonus too!"
