Work. We all have to work. Everyone’s
job necessitates posture(s) that may trigger
pain at one time or another. Moses Chiropractic sees the pain! Quite
a few West Palm Beach back pain and neck pain patients who come
to chiropractic share stories of work-related pain. We are
here to help!
TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
Moses Chiropractic is poised in its skill
to alleviate and manage work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our West Palm Beach 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 frequently experienced
pain for 54.8%. Neck and shoulder pain followed. Interestingly,
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 interventions were effective in treating
musculoskeletal disorders and in decreasing pain for office workers.
(2) Moses Chiropractic values the optimism this brings
for our West Palm Beach back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
Moses Chiropractic 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 advice. We appreciate researchers’
description of work-related musculoskeletal pain disorders as those painful issues
brought on by inadequate utilization
of the musculoskeletal system throughout the work day.
Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty typical
ways of managing and attempting
to prevent pain. Most recommendations like this were for workers
to do on their own time. Recently, researchers proposed
the value of specific, individualized, resistance strengthening exercises
in the workplace to decrease pain, fatigue, and discomfort in worker’s
neck and upper extremities. (3) That
is a good idea. Moses Chiropractic sees the value in taking care of oneself at home as well as in the workplace!
