Work. We all must work. Everyone’s
job requires posture(s) that may cause
pain at one point or another. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center sees the pain! Many Manahawkin back pain and neck pain patients who seek chiropractic share stories of work-related pain. We can help!
TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is poised in its skill
to alleviate and handle work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our Manahawkin 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 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 interventions were effective in treating
musculoskeletal disorders and in decreasing pain for office workers.
(2) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center appreciates the optimism this brings
for our Manahawkin back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center manages work-related pain within the guidelines of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management which incorporates gentle spinal manipulation along
with exercise, nutrition and other recommendations. We see the value in researchers’
description of work-related musculoskeletal pain disorders as those painful conditions
induced by too little utilization
of the musculoskeletal system during work.
Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty typical
methods of dealing with and attempting
to prevent pain. Most suggestions like this were for workers
to do outside of the workplace. Recently, researchers suggested
the benefit of specific, individualized, resistance strengthening exercises
in the workplace to decrease pain, fatigue, and discomfort in the neck and upper extremities of workers. (3) That
is a promising idea. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center sees the benefit
of taking care of oneself at home and in the workplace!
