Most employees do not leave their homes on their way to work thinking they could be injured or develop pain while working. It is essential to recognize the signs that you have suffered an injury at work or need chiropractic care. Everything from carpal tunnel syndrome to lower back pain can indicate you need to see a chiropractor. Our team at Bluegrass Chiro in Kentucky understands the need for chiropractic care to help keep you on the top of your game at work.
Lower back pain is one of the most common complaints associated with work pains. It is essential to pick things up with the legs and not your back while working. Furthermore, practicing proper ergonomics when sitting at a computer can help reduce your back pain. If needed, a chiropractor can help make spinal adjustments to relieve the pain and promote proper posture at work.
Neck stress can lead to pain and stiffness in the neck, shoulders, and upper back. The symptoms of neck stress include having difficulty looking up, down, or turning your head from side to side. Neck pain can occur due to poor posture at work, staring at a computer all day long, or bending incorrectly to pick something up. Having good ergonomics can help ease your neck stress while reducing the pain.
Wrist pain is potentially a sign of carpal tunnel syndrome, which develops due to inflammation when there is compression of the median nerve. Those who suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome experience shooting pains down the arm, through the hands, and into the fingers. This condition commonly develops in those who spend hours a day typing on a computer.
