You spend a lot of time at work. It’s necessary to pay your bills, but it can also be a source of body aches and pains if your work space is set up poorly. Adding some work space solutions could alleviate some of that pain.
Back pain is one of the most common reasons people cite when coming into a chiropractic office, but it’s not the only one or even a stand alone issue. Back pain can often be accompanied by extremity and neck pain, or headaches. Chiropractic care can be a great way to find relief from your pain, but there are some work space solutions that can compliment care and possibly help avoid the return of your pain.
Work Space Solutions
Upper or Lower back pain? Try an ergonomic office chair. There are several types available, be sure to check the reviews and ratings to see what people have loved or not about each one. A balance ball chair might also be a solution you would like. Those not in your budget? Try a lumbar support for your chair.
It’s possible your neck pain could be from looking too low (or high) at your computer monitor. Find an adjustable monitor stand or mounting arm.
Are you sitting too much? Sometimes even when you have the best ergonomic solutions you are still sitting in one position for too long, too many days. There are adjustable workstations and desks that will allow you to move between sitting and standing throughout the work week.
Do you stand all day? If your job requires a lot of time on your feet, anti-fatigue mats placed where you stop and stand the most can take some of the pressure off.
Still having pain after adding solutions to your work space? Chiropractic care could help relieve lingering pain that remains after years of non-ergonomic habits. Each chiropractor has their preferred adjusting technique and additional therapy options available.
