TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
Spine & Sports Rehab Center is confident in its skill
to relieve and handle work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our Baton Rouge 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 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 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 decreasing pain for office workers.

for our Baton Rouge back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
Spine & Sports Rehab Center treats work-related pain within 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 inadequate usage
of the musculoskeletal system during work.
Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty usual
methods of dealing with and trying
to prevent pain. Most suggestions like this were for workers
to do on their own time. Recently, researchers proposed
the value of specific, individualized, resistance strengthening exercises
in the workplace to reduce pain, fatigue, and discomfort in the neck and upper extremities of workers. (3) That’s a promising idea. Spine & Sports Rehab Center sees the benefit
of taking care of oneself at home as well as in the workplace!
