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!
TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
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!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
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!
