PAIN IN THE NECK OFFICE WORK
Researchers have a proper name for your job’s pain in the neck problem - work-related neck-shoulder pain. Adding motor control training and ergonomic workspace modification guidance for workplace motions and postures resulted in positive and sustainable value in reducing shoulder pain and neck pain. (1) Adding stretching exercises to the daily routine decreased neck and shoulder pain and improved neck function and quality of life for office workers with chronic moderate-to-severe neck pain or shoulder pain. This study documented that the additional instruction in how to do neck and shoulder stretches twice daily every work day (5 days a week) truly helped in the month long program. Further, those who performed the exercises less than 3 times a week reported less improvement than those who did them more than 3 times a week. Doing the neck and shoulder exercises better improved neck function and these patients’ quality of life scores. And this study was with chronic neck pain and shoulder pain patients, those who have experienced neck and shoulder pain for more than 3 months and rated their pain as 5 or more on a a 10 point scale with 10 being the worst pain. (2) Imagine what benefit these types of exercises could do for early stage neck and shoulder pain office-working patients!
