Do you find that sitting or standing all day long at work takes a toll on your back? If so, then chiropractic care can help! Sitting or standing all day can cause stress on the musculoskeletal system, specifically the spine, causing not only back pain, but an overall feeling of discomfort, soreness, and even pain. It can lead to chronic joint pain from not enough support for the knees, hips, feet, or other joints. To prevent pain and increase endurance and comfort at work, consider regular visits to a chiropractor.
The Importance of Spinal Health The spine plays a larger role than just supporting our bodies and improving posture. It has a vital role in overall body function. The vertebra in the spine are responsible for allowing the body to move, twist, turn, or bend throughout the day. When any one of the vertebrae that make up the spine are out of alignment, such as being twisted, turned, or generally out of place, it can have a significant impact on nervous system function. Spinal misalignments cause nerve interference that disrupts communication within the body. When this happens, symptoms such as headaches, back pain, neck aches, sciatica problems, and a multitude of other health conditions that can affect your comfort at work and home Proper Support Eases Pain Some simple changes in how you sit or stand at work can have an impact on chronic pain. For instance, proper back support when you sit for long periods of time can reduce pain. Ergonomic chairs are designed to eliminate stress on the back and body for those who sit most of the day. Being aware of how you sit or stand can make a big difference as well. Sitting at a 90 degree angle with hips and knees in alignment and feet resting flat on the floor is one of the best ways to minimize discomfort when sitting and increase your stamina to sit for longer periods of time. Standing in proper alignment with your weight balanced on both feet, hips back, chest out, shoulders straight, and head up will also ease unwanted tension and stress. But sometimes, this isn’t enough to complete alleviate pain Chiropractic Adjustments for the Workplace Gentle, specific chiropractic adjustments can ease pain and discomfort in the workplace when nothing else has worked. The precise movements of a neurologically-based chiropractic adjustment will target spinal misalignments that will address the root cause of pain. When the body can function at high levels of health, it can provide relief from chronic pain so that you can have endurance and stamina to sit or stand for long periods of time more comfortably.
