Work. We all must work. Everyone’s
job requires posture(s) that may elicit
pain at one time or another. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic sees the pain! Quite
a few Fort Wayne back pain and neck pain patients who come
to chiropractic share stories of work-related pain. We are
here to help!
TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is poised in its ability
to alleviate and manage work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our Fort Wayne 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 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 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 addressing
musculoskeletal disorders and in decreasing pain for office workers.
(2) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic appreciates the optimism this brings
for our Fort Wayne back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic manages work-related pain according
to the guidelines of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management which integrates gentle spinal manipulation alongside exercise, nutrition and other recommendations. We appreciate researchers’
description of work-related musculoskeletal pain disorders as those painful conditions
induced by inadequate usage
of the musculoskeletal system during work.
Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty usual
ways of managing and attempting
to prevent pain. Most recommendations like this were for workers
to do on their own time. Recently, researchers suggested
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
is a promising idea. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic sees the value in taking care of oneself at home as well as in the workplace!
