Workers and Their Need for Chiropractic Care

By Brandi Swieter

Blue collar workers who handle strenuous tasks may seem like the only ones who could benefit from chiropractic care, but higher-ups with desk jobs could use the attention to their spines just as much. No matter which category a person falls under, blue collar or white collar, both professions should take advantage of chiropractic if they want to alleviate pain felt from handling their designated job duties.

Blue Collar Workers

Physically demanding jobs, such as those that require heavy lifting, long periods of standing, and strenuous activity, prove harsh on the body. Blue collar workers are primarily responsible for these types of tasks, causing their back to bend, twist, and be overexerted on a regular basis. These job duties can quickly lead to severe back strain and pain, requiring a chiropractor to remove subluxations and perform a spinal alignment.

Workers who fall under this job classification can avoid some on-the-job pain by being sure to stretch before work and in-between tasks. They should drink water regularly to keep the body hydrated and able to work efficiently, and also wear the right clothes that allow for maximum comfort and the best range of motion. Routine chiropractic visits will also make a major improvement in the amount of pain these workers feel regularly.

White Collar Workers

Managers, business owners, administrative assistants and all other professionals who typically work in an office setting are known as white collar. Although they do not handle backbreaking tasks that are grueling on the body, they do suffer from back pain at times from sitting in one position for so long. This too can cause serious back and body troubles that necessitates a visit to the chiropractor to correct.

Office professionals can avoid some of their back pain by using proper posture while sitting at their desks. They should never slouch or lean forward too frequently, instead sitting upright and remaining in an optimal position. Getting up to take regular breaks is also necessary, even if it only entails a few minutes to stretch. By keeping the keyboard, computer screen, chair, and mouse all at the ideal height, some additional pain can also be avoided.

No matter what type of job a person has, they are likely to experience some work-related pain at some point. Seeing a chiropractor regularly will help to keep the spine properly aligned and the body in optimal condition so these pains and aches are lessened. Both heavy lifting and sitting for long periods can wreak far more havoc on the body than people often realize.
