Work. We all must work. Everyone’s job necessitates posture(s) that may cause pain at one time or another. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic sees the pain! Many Augusta 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
Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is poised in its ability to alleviate and handle work-related musculoskeletal pain for our Augusta 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 often experienced pain for 54.8%. Neck and shoulder pain followed. 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 addressing musculoskeletal disorders and in decreasing pain for office workers. (2) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic values the optimism this brings for our Augusta back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic 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 appreciate researchers’ description of work-related musculoskeletal pain disorders as those painful issues induced by too little utilization of the musculoskeletal system throughout the work day. Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty usual methods of managing and attempting to prevent pain. Most suggestions like this were for workers to do outside of the workplace. Recently, researchers proposed the benefit of specific, individualized, resistance strengthening exercises in the workplace to decrease pain, fatigue, and discomfort in worker’s upper extremities and neck. (3) That’s a promising idea. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic sees the value in taking care of oneself at home as well as in the workplace!
