No matter what your job is, there are likely functional aspects of it that are causing you some problems. Whether your job involves a lot of manual labor, or sitting in front of a computer, there are strategies you can employ that will help your body stay at its best.

In this, we’re going to go through a few of them, and see what you can do beyond getting spinal manipulation or back adjustments.

Lifting Improperly Causes Joint Issues

If you have to pick up heavy things at work, whether it’s a daily thing or even just occasionally, we often see a lot of chronic pain in these fields.

The pain mainly affects their joints like knees and ankles, as well as the lower back. But these are really critical for living your day to day life.

When we see people with chronic pain, we know it’s so important to make certain that they find relief from their suffering as soon as possible. The last thing you want is for a problem to become more and more common.

So make sure that you’re taking care to lift with your legs, and if you have pain develop, please contact us to get the issue treated.

The Laptop Slouch Causes Chronic Back Pain

One of the biggest challenges you will face in an office setting is sitting in front of a computer all day. People often slouch in their seats, compressing the spinal column and causing a lot  of discomfort over time.

If this sounds like something you yourself have experienced before, then you might consider booking an appointment for chiropractic services. It might seem like a small thing, but in reality, this condition untreated can contribute to further degradation of your condition.

There are things you can do in your office, as well, to try and mitigate the issues that come from slouching.

The first one is to try and adjust your chair and desk so that your back is straight and the screen is at the level of your eyes. This makes a postural difference, so remember to practice good posture. It’s good advice anytime, but it’s especially important for all of the time you spend working.

Furthermore, finding chairs or cushions that will support your lumbar spine are going to offer a great deal of relief. Look for good ergonomics in the furniture you work in, and make sure to get up and walk around the office every 45 minutes.
