Work. We all have to work. Everyone’s

pain at one point or another. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc sees the pain! Quite
a few Fort Wayne back pain and neck pain patients who seek chiropractic bring stories of work-related pain. We can help!
TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is poised in its ability
to relieve and manage work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our Fort Wayne 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 found to be high in office
workers whose physical activity levels were reported as 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 addressing
musculoskeletal disorders and in decreasing pain for office workers.
(2) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc welcomes the optimism this brings
for our Fort Wayne back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc manages work-related pain within the guidelines of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management which integrates gentle spinal manipulation alongside exercise, nutrition and other advice. We appreciate researchers’
description of work-related musculoskeletal pain disorders as those painful issues
brought on by too little use
of the musculoskeletal system throughout the work day.
Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty usual
methods of dealing with and trying
to prevent pain. Most recommendations like this were for workers
to do outside of the workplace. Recently, researchers suggested
the benefit 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. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc sees the value in taking care of oneself at home and in the workplace!
