Work. We all must do it. Everyone’s
job requires posture(s) that may cause
pain at one time or another. Cross Chiropractic Center sees the pain! Many Sandy Springs back pain and neck pain patients who come
to chiropractic share stories of work-related pain. We can help!
TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
Cross Chiropractic Center is confident in its skill
to alleviate and handle work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our Sandy Springs chiropractic patients. Not too startling,
81.7% of office workers in one study experienced musculoskeletal pain
in at least one area. Back pain was the most often experienced
pain for 54.8%. Neck and shoulder pain were after that. Interestingly,
musculoskeletal system pain was found to be high in office
workers whose physical activity levels were found to be 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) Cross Chiropractic Center welcomes the optimism this brings
for our Sandy Springs back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
Cross Chiropractic Center manages work-related pain within the guidelines of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management which incorporates gentle spinal manipulation alongside exercise, nutrition and other advice. We see the value in researchers’
description of work-related musculoskeletal pain disorders as those painful conditions
brought on by inadequate utilization
of the musculoskeletal system throughout the work day.
Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty typical
methods 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 value 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’s a good idea. Cross Chiropractic Center sees the benefit
of taking care of oneself at home and in the workplace!
