Clerical Work/Filing Can Lead To Neck And Back Pain
By Tom Herrin
Maybe you thought you had it made. You have a fairly cushy job where you work inside, spending much of your time filing records and performing various kinds of clerical work. It seems like you should be able to go home and feel pretty good. Somehow things aren’t going as smooth as they should. You get home and your neck and upper back feel like they have been through the ringer. Personal neglect may be your biggest problem. Now would be a great time to do something for yourself. Your health is important and you have a responsibility to take care of it. The next best step for you may be to see a chiropractor.
How Could You Hurt Your Back Without Lifting?
A lot of times we think of chiropractors as treating people who have been in accidents or injured themselves lifting. That is not the case for many people. Our different jobs can all produce wear and tear on our bodies. If we want to feel good overall, we have to take steps to protect ourselves. People who perform jobs that require a lot of tedious looking and working often suffer considerable stiffness from lack of motion. This inactivity can result in movement of the vertebrae in our spine. This movement creates pressure on the nerves traveling through it. The result is pain.
A Chiropractic Adjustment Can Provide Relief
Your chiropractor can manipulate your spine, allowing those vertebrae that have moved or become restricted to move back. Our lack of movement in part of our spine may have deprived it of the opportunity for those muscles to be worked. This allows the spine to move partly due to the fact that the muscles are not providing support. Our spine is kind of on its own. Eventually it suffers the consequences. An adjustment can relieve pressure and allow the spine to move into its correct place.
Your Lifestyle Needs Balance
If we have an inactive routine because of our type of work, we will be well advised to have some activity to compensate. Your chiropractor can help to correct your spine and suggest activities or exercises that can help work and strengthen your muscles to provide proper support.
