Chronic pain can often occur as a result of our jobs. Contrary to popular opinion, however, pain doesn't occur only with jobs that involve intensive labor. Even working at a desk can cause pain throughout the body after a period of time. At Wellness Chiropractic Center in Watertown, WI, we help manage pain that you're feeling from being in the workplace. Here are some common pains that signal the need for a chiropractic visit.
Lower Back Pain
Pain in the lower back is a common problem for many adults across the country. It can happen from repetitive movements, such as lifting or even being on your feet for an extended time. Also, people who have desk jobs often experience lower back pain when they sit all day.
Improper work ergonomics is often the culprit for neck pain or stiffness. For example, individuals who are on a computer for hours can have neck stiffness or discomfort when the screen is at the incorrect height (too high or too low).
Pain in the Hands or Wrists
Those who engage in repetitive motions every day, such as typing, can be at a higher risk for developing carpal tunnel syndrome. It can feel like your hands have a tingling or numbing sensation, making it more challenging to complete your job.
Another pain that often flies under the radar is severe migraines. These can be the result of work-related stress, pore posture, or a combination of both. Again, we provide treatment ranging from spinal adjustments to massage therapy and more.
