Ashburn Chiropractic Care for Work-Related Musculoskeletal Pain

Work. We all must do it. Everyone’s job requires posture(s) that may cause pain at one time or another. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn sees the pain! Quite a few Ashburn back pain and neck pain patients who seek chiropractic share stories of work-related pain. We are here to help!


Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is confident in its skill to alleviate and manage work-related musculoskeletal pain for our Ashburn 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 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 treating musculoskeletal disorders and in reducing pain for office workers. (2) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn appreciates the optimism this brings for our Ashburn back and neck pain patients!


Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn treats work-related pain according to the guidelines of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which integrates 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 too little use of the musculoskeletal system throughout the work day. Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty typical ways of managing and attempting 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 the neck and upper extremities of workers. (3) That is a good idea. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn sees the benefit of taking care of oneself at home as well as in the workplace!
