TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
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!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
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!
