TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is poised in its ability
to alleviate and manage work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our Auburn chiropractic patients. Not too surprisingly,
81.7% of office workers in one study experienced musculoskeletal pain
in at least one area. Back pain was the most frequently experienced
pain for 54.8%. Neck and shoulder pain followed. Curiously,
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 routines were effective in treating
musculoskeletal disorders and in reducing pain for office workers.

for our Auburn back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. manages 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 issues
brought on by too little use
of the musculoskeletal system during work.
Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty usual
methods of managing and attempting
to prevent pain. Most recommendations like this were for workers
to do on their own time. Recently, researchers suggested
the benefit of specific, individualized, resistance strengthening exercises
in the workplace to decrease pain, fatigue, and discomfort in worker’s
neck and upper extremities. (3) That’s a good idea. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. sees the value in taking care of oneself at home and in the workplace!
