TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is confident in its skill
to relieve and manage work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our Carrolltown 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 frequently experienced
pain for 54.8%. Neck and shoulder pain followed. Curiously,
musculoskeletal system pain was seen as 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 reducing pain for office workers.
(2) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation welcomes the optimism this brings
for our Carrolltown back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation manages work-related pain within the guidelines of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management which incorporates gentle spinal manipulation along
with exercise, nutrition and other recommendations. We appreciate researchers’
description of work-related musculoskeletal pain disorders as those painful issues
induced by inadequate usage
of the musculoskeletal system throughout the work day.
Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty usual
ways of managing and trying
to prevent pain. Most suggestions 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. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation sees the value in taking care of oneself at home as well as in the workplace!
