Chiropractic Care for Pain-Free Workdays

By Donna Stark

Happy hours, hugs from your family, relaxation with your feet on the table. That is how your workday should end, don't you think? It shouldn't end with aches, pain, soreness, and discomfort, but if you are one of the many who sit behind a desk all day, that may be exactly what you have to look forward to by the end of the night. Fortunately, your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic have a few tips in mind that can help turn those painful evenings into those highly sought-after moments of peace. Take a look.

Neck and Shoulder Pain

If your neck and shoulders are screaming in pain, you may want to check your posture! Are your shoulders hunched over a laptop? Is your neck leaning too far forward? Where is your monitor placed? By keeping an eye on how you hold your body and making sure your equipment is placed in ergonomically-correct positions, you can reduce a lot of the stress and tension found in both of your neck and shoulders.

Tight Hips

When you get up from your chair, does it feel as if you have aged decades? If it does, you may be experiencing tight hips. Tight hips can lead to serious back pain so don't ignore this problem! By reclining your chair just a bit and getting up to move frequently, you may be able to loosen those hip flexors up just enough for the pain to go away. 

Leg Cramps and Pain

There is nothing worse than that jolt of pain that comes from a leg cramp, is there? Leg cramps are generally a sign of poor circulation and the easiest way to fix that is to get moving! Make sure you are taking plenty of breaks throughout your day and keep your feet flat on the ground. If your chair is not adjustable, use a footrest.

Sore Wrists and Hands 

If your hands and wrists aren't in a neutral position, the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome increases significantly. The way to decrease this risk is to keep your wrists as flat and straight as possible so there is no awkward bend to them. Investing in an ergonomic keyboard and mouse can help too.
