TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
Disc Centers Of America is confident in its skill
to relieve and handle work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our Buffalo, NY 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 frequently experienced
pain for 54.8%. Neck and shoulder pain were after that. Curiously,
musculoskeletal system pain was seen as high in office
workers whose physical activity levels were found to be 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 treating
musculoskeletal disorders and in reducing pain for office workers.
(2) Disc Centers Of America welcomes the optimism this brings
for our Buffalo, NY back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
Disc Centers Of America treats work-related pain within 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 conditions
brought on by inadequate usage
of the musculoskeletal system during work.
Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty usual
methods of dealing with and attempting
to prevent pain. Most suggestions like this were for workers
to do outside of the workplace. Recently, researchers proposed
the value of specific, individualized, resistance strengthening exercises
in the workplace to reduce pain, fatigue, and discomfort in the neck and upper extremities of workers. (3) That’s a promising idea. Disc Centers Of America sees the value in taking care of oneself at home as well as in the workplace!
