Work. We all must do it. Everyone’s

a few Millville back pain and neck pain patients who come

here to help!
TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
Wilson Family Chiropractic is poised in its ability
to relieve and manage work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our Millville chiropractic patients. Not too surprisingly,
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 seen as high in office
workers whose physical activity levels were found to be 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 interventions were effective in addressing
musculoskeletal disorders and in decreasing pain for office workers.
(2) Wilson Family Chiropractic appreciates the optimism this brings
for our Millville back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
Wilson Family Chiropractic manages work-related pain according
to the guidelines of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management which incorporates gentle spinal manipulation alongside exercise, nutrition and other recommendations. We see the value in researchers’
description of work-related musculoskeletal pain disorders as those painful conditions
induced by too little use
of the musculoskeletal system throughout the work day.
Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty usual
ways of dealing with and trying
to prevent pain. Most suggestions like this were for workers
to do outside of the workplace. Recently, researchers suggested
the value of specific, individualized, resistance strengthening exercises
in the workplace to decrease pain, fatigue, and discomfort in worker’s
neck and upper extremities. (3) That
is a good idea. Wilson Family Chiropractic sees the benefit
of taking care of oneself at home and in the workplace!
