Work. We all have to work. Everyone’s
job requires posture(s) that may trigger
pain at one point or another. Chiropractic Care sees the pain! Many West Palm Beach back pain and neck pain patients who seek chiropractic bring stories of work-related pain. We can help!
TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
Chiropractic Care is confident in its ability
to alleviate and manage work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients. Not too surprisingly,
81.7% of office workers in one study experienced musculoskeletal pain
in at least one area. Back pain was the most frequently experienced
pain for 54.8%. Neck and shoulder pain were after that. Curiously,
musculoskeletal system pain was found to be high in office
workers whose physical activity levels were reported as low. 58.5%
of these workers were “active” physically, 37.3% were less
active, 4.1% were very active. (1) Research shows that in-the-workplace
exercise routines were effective in treating
musculoskeletal disorders and in reducing pain for office workers.
(2) Chiropractic Care appreciates the optimism this brings
for our West Palm Beach back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
Chiropractic Care treats work-related pain within the guidelines of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management which integrates gentle spinal manipulation along
with exercise, nutrition and other recommendations. We see the value in researchers’
description of work-related musculoskeletal pain disorders as those painful conditions
brought on by too little use
of the musculoskeletal system throughout the work day.
Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty usual
ways of dealing with and trying
to prevent pain. Most recommendations like this were for workers
to do outside of the workplace. Recently, researchers suggested
the benefit of specific, individualized, resistance strengthening exercises
in the workplace to reduce pain, fatigue, and discomfort in the neck and upper extremities of workers. (3) That
is a promising idea. Chiropractic Care sees the value in taking care of oneself at home and in the workplace!
