Sitka Chiropractic Care for Work-Related Musculoskeletal Pain

Work. We all have to do it. Everyone’s job requires posture(s) that may trigger pain at one time or another. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka sees the pain! Quite a few Sitka back pain and neck pain patients who come to chiropractic bring stories of work-related pain. We are here to help!


Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is confident in its skill to relieve and manage work-related musculoskeletal pain for our Sitka chiropractic patients. Not too surprisingly, 81.7% of office workers in one study experienced musculoskeletal pain in at least one area. Back pain was the most frequently 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 reported as 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 addressing musculoskeletal disorders and in reducing pain for office workers. (2) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka welcomes the optimism this brings for our Sitka back and neck pain patients!


Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka treats work-related pain within the guidelines of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which incorporates gentle spinal manipulation alongside exercise, nutrition and other recommendations.  We see the value in researchers’ description of work-related musculoskeletal pain disorders as those painful conditions brought on by too little utilization of the musculoskeletal system during work. Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty usual ways of dealing with and trying to prevent pain. Most recommendations like this were for workers to do outside of the workplace. Recently, researchers suggested 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 is a promising idea. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka sees the benefit of taking care of oneself at home as well as in the workplace!
