Work. We all have to work. Everyone’s
job necessitates posture(s) that may cause
pain at one time or another. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center sees the pain! Quite
a few Pensacola back pain and neck pain patients who come
to chiropractic share stories of work-related pain. We can help!
TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is confident in its ability
to relieve and handle work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our Pensacola chiropractic patients. Not too surprisingly,
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 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 treating
musculoskeletal disorders and in reducing pain for office workers.
(2) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center values the optimism this brings
for our Pensacola back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center treats 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 usage
of the musculoskeletal system during work.
Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty typical
methods of dealing with and attempting
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 worker’s
upper extremities and neck. (3) That
is a good idea. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center sees the benefit
of taking care of oneself at home as well as in the workplace!
