Oxford Chiropractic Care for Work-Related Musculoskeletal Pain

Work. We all have to do it. Everyone’s job requires posture(s) that may elicit pain at one point or another. Satterwhite Chiropractic sees the pain! Many Oxford back pain and neck pain patients who seek chiropractic bring stories of work-related pain. We can help!


Satterwhite Chiropractic is poised in its ability to alleviate and handle work-related musculoskeletal pain for our Oxford 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 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 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 routines were effective in treating musculoskeletal disorders and in decreasing pain for office workers. (2) Satterwhite Chiropractic values the optimism this brings for our Oxford back and neck pain patients!


Satterwhite Chiropractic treats 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 see the value in researchers’ description of work-related musculoskeletal pain disorders as those painful issues brought on by inadequate use of the musculoskeletal system during work. Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty typical ways of managing and trying to prevent pain. Most recommendations like this were for workers to do on their own time. Recently, researchers proposed 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’s a promising idea. Satterwhite Chiropractic sees the value in taking care of oneself at home and in the workplace!
