Work. We all must do it. Everyone’s
job requires posture(s) that may trigger
pain at one time or another. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic sees the pain! Many Montreal back pain and neck pain patients who seek chiropractic bring stories of work-related pain. We can help!
TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is confident in its skill
to alleviate and handle work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our Montreal 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 often experienced
pain for 54.8%. Neck and shoulder pain followed. 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 routines were effective in addressing
musculoskeletal disorders and in decreasing pain for office workers.
(2) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic appreciates the optimism this brings
for our Montreal back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic manages work-related pain within the guidelines of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management which integrates gentle spinal manipulation along
with exercise, nutrition and other advice. We appreciate researchers’
description of work-related musculoskeletal pain disorders as those painful conditions
brought on by too little utilization
of the musculoskeletal system throughout the work day.
Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty usual
methods 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 benefit of specific, individualized, resistance strengthening exercises
in the workplace to reduce pain, fatigue, and discomfort in worker’s
neck and upper extremities. (3) That’s a good idea. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic sees the benefit
of taking care of oneself at home and in the workplace!
