Manahawkin Chiropractic Care for Work-Related Musculoskeletal Pain

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!


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!


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!
