Baton Rouge Chiropractic Care for Work-Related Musculoskeletal Pain

Work. We all have to do it. Everyone’s job requires posture(s) that may elicit pain at one point or another. Spine & Sports Rehab Center sees the pain! Quite a few Baton Rouge back pain and neck pain patients who seek chiropractic share stories of work-related pain. We are here to help!


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. (2) Spine & Sports Rehab Center welcomes the optimism this brings for our Baton Rouge back and neck pain patients!


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!
