Work. We all must do it. Everyone’s
job necessitates posture(s) that may elicit
pain at one time or another. Hollstrom & Associates Inc sees the pain! Quite
a few Largo back pain and neck pain patients who seek chiropractic share stories of work-related pain. We can help!
TREATING AND PREVENTING WORKPLACE MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN
Hollstrom & Associates Inc is poised in its skill
to alleviate and handle work-related musculoskeletal
pain for our Largo chiropractic patients. Not too startling,
81.7% of office workers in one study had musculoskeletal pain
in at least one area. Back pain was the most often experienced
pain for 54.8%. Neck and shoulder pain followed. Curiously,
musculoskeletal system pain was found to be 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 decreasing pain for office workers.

for our Largo back and neck pain patients!
WHAT EXERCISE INTERVENTIONS WORK?
Hollstrom & Associates Inc treats work-related pain according
to the guidelines of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management which incorporates gentle spinal manipulation along
with exercise, nutrition and other recommendations. 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 typical
ways of managing and trying
to prevent pain. Most recommendations like this were for workers
to do outside of the workplace. Recently, researchers proposed
the value 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. Hollstrom & Associates Inc sees the benefit
of taking care of oneself at home as well as in the workplace!
