Colorado Springs Chiropractic Care for Work-Related Musculoskeletal Pain

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!
