TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is poised in its skill
to alleviate and handle work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our Manchester chiropractic patients. Not too startling,
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. 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 decreasing pain for office workers.
(2) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries values the optimism this brings
for our Manchester back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries manages work-related pain according
to the guidelines of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management which incorporates gentle spinal manipulation alongside exercise, nutrition and other advice. We see the value in researchers’
description of work-related musculoskeletal pain disorders as those painful issues
induced by too little usage
of the musculoskeletal system during work.
Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty typical
methods of dealing with and attempting
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
is a promising idea. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries sees the value in taking care of oneself at home and in the workplace!
