Listening to Your Body for Pain Signals

By Donna Stark

With the holiday breaks behind us now, it's time to get back to work. But getting back to work can be risky to your health and wellness if you aren't being careful enough. Even if your job doesn't call for physical labor, there are still plenty of things you should consider if you want to improve your overall safety while on the job. And one of the most important things is to learn how to listen to your body. Your body will send out plenty of warnings to signal when something is wrong, but if you don't know how to pick up on those communications, you won't be able to make things better. Take a look at what your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic have to say about this topic.

Common Work Injuries

Some workplace injuries are caused by accidents while doing physical labor while others are caused by seemingly innocuous movements throughout the day. Think you aren't at risk for injury because you work behind a desk all day? Think again. Any repetitive task can put a serious strain on your body, even sitting! Here are some of the most common injuries that occur while on the job.

  • Back and neck pain
  • Headaches
  • Repetitive use injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Overexertion injuries, such as sprains and strains
  • Nerve damage

Listening to Your Body and Addressing the Problem

To keep your body as healthy as you can, you have to pay attention to what it is trying to tell you. And you can't ignore the warning signals it gives, especially if you want to reduce the risk of serious pain and increased damage down the road.

If you do end up experiencing any of the above and aren't sure what step you should take next, head on in to see your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic. After a full evaluation, your chiropractor will design a treatment plan that will target the root cause of the issue with precise and effective adjustments. By treating the underlying source, and not masking the problem with pain relievers, you can look forward to quick, all-natural relief and long-lasting results!

Your Body Knows What's What

It's OK if your days (or nights) at work are full of hustle. Just make sure you take the time to slow down so you can really listen to your body. It's one of the most important things you can do to optimize your health and wellness!
