Work. We all have to work. Everyone’s

a few San Jose back pain and neck pain patients who seek chiropractic share stories of work-related pain. We can help!
TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
Chiropractic Solutions is poised in its skill
to alleviate and manage work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our San Jose 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 frequently experienced
pain for 54.8%. Neck and shoulder pain were after that. Curiously,
musculoskeletal system pain was found to be 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 interventions were effective in addressing
musculoskeletal disorders and in reducing pain for office workers.
(2) Chiropractic Solutions welcomes the optimism this brings
for our San Jose back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
Chiropractic Solutions treats work-related pain within the guidelines of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management which integrates gentle spinal manipulation along
with exercise, nutrition and other advice. We appreciate researchers’
description of work-related musculoskeletal pain disorders as those painful issues
brought on by inadequate utilization
of the musculoskeletal system throughout the work day.
Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty usual
methods of managing and trying
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’s a good idea. Chiropractic Solutions sees the benefit
of taking care of oneself at home and in the workplace!
