Minster Chiropractic Care for Work-Related Musculoskeletal Pain

Work. We all have to work. Everyone’s job necessitates posture(s) that may cause pain at one point or another. Minster Chiropractic Center sees the pain! Many Minster back pain and neck pain patients who come to chiropractic bring stories of work-related pain. We are here to help!


Minster Chiropractic Center is poised in its ability to relieve and handle work-related musculoskeletal pain for our Minster 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 followed. Interestingly, musculoskeletal system pain was found to be 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 routines were effective in addressing musculoskeletal disorders and in decreasing pain for office workers. (2) Minster Chiropractic Center appreciates the optimism this brings for our Minster back and neck pain patients!


Minster Chiropractic Center manages work-related pain according to the guidelines of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which incorporates gentle spinal manipulation along with exercise, nutrition and other advice.  We appreciate researchers’ description of work-related musculoskeletal pain disorders as those painful issues induced by inadequate utilization of the musculoskeletal system throughout the work day. Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty usual methods of managing and trying to prevent pain. Most suggestions like this were for workers to do on their own time. 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 is a promising idea. Minster Chiropractic Center sees the benefit of taking care of oneself at home as well as in the workplace!
