Fort Wayne Chiropractic Care for Work-Related Musculoskeletal Pain

March 29, 2022

Work. We all have to do it. Everyone’s job necessitates posture(s) that may elicit 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!


Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is confident in its skill to alleviate 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 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 were “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) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc values the optimism this brings for our Fort Wayne back and neck pain patients!


Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc treats work-related pain within the guidelines of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which incorporates gentle spinal manipulation alongside exercise, nutrition and other advice.  We appreciate researchers’ description of work-related musculoskeletal pain disorders as those painful conditions induced by inadequate utilization of the musculoskeletal system throughout the work day. Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty typical methods of dealing with and attempting to prevent pain. Most recommendations like this were for workers to do outside of the workplace. Recently, researchers proposed 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’s a promising idea. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc sees the value in taking care of oneself at home as well as in the workplace!
