San Jose Chiropractic Care for Work-Related Musculoskeletal Pain

Work. We all have to work. Everyone’s job requires posture(s) that may trigger pain at one time or another. Chiropractic Solutions sees the pain! Quite a few San Jose back pain and neck pain patients who seek chiropractic share stories of work-related pain. We can help!


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!


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!
