Work. We all must do it. Everyone’s

pain at one point or another. New Roads Chiropractic Center sees the pain! Quite
a few New Roads back pain and neck pain patients who come

TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
New Roads Chiropractic Center is poised in its skill
to relieve and manage work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our New Roads chiropractic patients. Not too startling,
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. Interestingly,
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 interventions were effective in addressing
musculoskeletal disorders and in reducing pain for office workers.
(2) New Roads Chiropractic Center welcomes the optimism this brings
for our New Roads back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
New Roads Chiropractic Center treats 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
brought on by inadequate usage
of the musculoskeletal system during work.
Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty typical
ways of dealing with 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 decrease pain, fatigue, and discomfort in worker’s
upper extremities and neck. (3) That’s a good idea. New Roads Chiropractic Center sees the benefit
of taking care of oneself at home and in the workplace!
