Largo Chiropractic Care for Work-Related Musculoskeletal Pain

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!


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. (2) Hollstrom & Associates Inc appreciates the optimism this brings for our Largo back and neck pain patients!


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!
