Work. We all have to work. Everyone’s
job requires posture(s) that may elicit
pain at one time or another. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR sees the pain! Quite
a few Colorado Springs back pain and neck pain patients who seek chiropractic share stories of work-related pain. We can help!
TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is poised in its skill
to relieve and handle work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our Colorado 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 followed. 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 reported being “active” physically, 37.3% were less
active, 4.1% were very active. (1) Research shows that in-the-workplace
exercise routines were effective in addressing
musculoskeletal disorders and in reducing pain for office workers.
(2) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR welcomes the optimism this brings
for our Colorado Springs back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR manages work-related pain according
to the guidelines of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management which incorporates gentle spinal manipulation along
with exercise, nutrition and other recommendations. We appreciate researchers’
description of work-related musculoskeletal pain disorders as those painful issues
induced by inadequate utilization
of the musculoskeletal system during work.
Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty usual
ways of managing and trying
to prevent pain. Most recommendations like this were for workers
to do on their own time. Recently, researchers proposed
the benefit of specific, individualized, resistance strengthening exercises
in the workplace to reduce pain, fatigue, and discomfort in worker’s
neck and upper extremities. (3) That
is a good idea. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR sees the benefit
of taking care of oneself at home and in the workplace!
