TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is confident in its ability
to alleviate and manage work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our Groton 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. 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 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 reducing pain for office workers.
(2) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office appreciates the optimism this brings
for our Groton back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office treats 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
brought on by inadequate use
of the musculoskeletal system throughout the work day.
Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty typical
methods of managing and attempting
to prevent pain. Most recommendations like this were for workers
to do on their own time. Recently, researchers suggested
the value of specific, individualized, resistance strengthening exercises
in the workplace to decrease pain, fatigue, and discomfort in the neck and upper extremities of workers. (3) That’s a promising idea. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office sees the value in taking care of oneself at home and in the workplace!
