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.
