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