Work. We all must work. Everyone’s

TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
Spinal Care Clinic is confident in its skill
to relieve and manage work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our Burlington and Hamilton 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. Interestingly,
musculoskeletal system pain was found to be high in office
workers whose physical activity levels were reported as 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 treating
musculoskeletal disorders and in decreasing pain for office workers.
(2) Spinal Care Clinic welcomes the optimism this brings
for our Burlington and Hamilton back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
Spinal Care Clinic manages work-related pain within the guidelines of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management which incorporates gentle spinal manipulation alongside exercise, nutrition and other advice. We appreciate researchers’
description of work-related musculoskeletal pain disorders as those painful conditions
induced by too little utilization
of the musculoskeletal system throughout the work day.
Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty typical
methods of managing and trying
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. Spinal Care Clinic sees the value in taking care of oneself at home as well as in the workplace!
