Work. We all must do it. Everyone’s
job necessitates posture(s) that may elicit
pain at one time or another. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic sees the pain! Many Fernandina Beach 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
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is confident in its skill
to alleviate and handle work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our Fernandina Beach 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 followed. Interestingly,
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 routines were effective in treating
musculoskeletal disorders and in reducing pain for office workers.
(2) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic values the optimism this brings
for our Fernandina Beach back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic manages work-related pain according
to the guidelines of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management which incorporates gentle spinal manipulation alongside exercise, nutrition and other recommendations. We appreciate researchers’
description of work-related musculoskeletal pain disorders as those painful issues
brought on by inadequate usage
of the musculoskeletal system throughout the work day.
Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty usual
methods of dealing with and trying
to prevent pain. Most recommendations like this were for workers
to do outside of the workplace. Recently, researchers proposed
the value of specific, individualized, resistance strengthening exercises
in the workplace to reduce pain, fatigue, and discomfort in the neck and upper extremities of workers. (3) That’s a good idea. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic sees the value in taking care of oneself at home and in the workplace!
