Easley Chiropractic Care for Work-Related Musculoskeletal Pain

March 29, 2022

Work. We all must work. Everyone’s job necessitates posture(s) that may cause pain at one time or another. Young Chiropractic sees the pain! Quite a few Easley back pain and neck pain patients who come to chiropractic bring stories of work-related pain. We are here to help!


Young Chiropractic is poised in its ability to alleviate and handle work-related musculoskeletal pain for our Easley chiropractic patients. Not too surprisingly, 81.7% of office workers in one study had musculoskeletal pain in at least one area. Back pain was the most frequently experienced pain for 54.8%. Neck and shoulder pain followed. Interestingly, 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 reported being “active” physically, 37.3% were less active, 4.1% were very active. (1) Research shows that in-the-workplace exercise routines were effective in treating musculoskeletal disorders and in decreasing pain for office workers. (2) Young Chiropractic welcomes the optimism this brings for our Easley back and neck pain patients!


Young Chiropractic manages 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 advice.  We appreciate researchers’ description of work-related musculoskeletal pain disorders as those painful issues brought on by too little utilization of the musculoskeletal system throughout the work day. Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty usual methods of managing and attempting to prevent pain. Most recommendations like this were for workers to do on their own time. Recently, researchers proposed the benefit of specific, individualized, resistance strengthening exercises in the workplace to reduce pain, fatigue, and discomfort in worker’s upper extremities and neck. (3) That’s a good idea. Young Chiropractic sees the benefit of taking care of oneself at home and in the workplace!
