Work. We all have to do it. Everyone’s
job necessitates posture(s) that may trigger
pain at one point or another. Layden Chiropractic sees the pain! Many Plainville back pain and neck pain patients who come
to chiropractic bring stories of work-related pain. We can help!
TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
Layden Chiropractic is poised in its skill
to alleviate and manage work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our Plainville chiropractic patients. Not too surprisingly,
81.7% of office workers in one study had 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. Curiously,
musculoskeletal system pain was seen as 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 addressing
musculoskeletal disorders and in reducing pain for office workers.
(2) Layden Chiropractic welcomes the optimism this brings
for our Plainville back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
Layden 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 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 managing and attempting
to prevent pain. Most recommendations like this were for workers
to do on their own time. Recently, researchers suggested
the benefit 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. Layden Chiropractic sees the value in taking care of oneself at home as well as in the workplace!
