Back pain and job satisfaction are inextricably linked
No matter your job- whether it requires zero movement or too much- back pain is one of the leading factors that causes people to fall out of love with their job. At Associates in Chiropractic, we specialize in helping people in all walks of employment maintain the integrity of their spines.
How we help prevent your job from killing your back
For people involved in physical labor, the back mainly suffers from movements involved in heavy lifting, excessive bending, turning and repetitive tasks that contribute to the degeneration of the spine. For people involved in this type of work, we focus on maintaining spinal alignment and core strength. These two factors contribute to spinal stability and reduce the chance for direct injury from movement.
For people involved in more white-collar professions, requiring very little movement, the chief dangers for the spine are poor posture, lack of movement, stress and muscle tension. Again we focus on spinal alignment and core strength to make sitting with proper posture all the easier; furthermore, we use hands on modalities to reduce muscle tension and focus on helping you find ways to move more throughout the day.
Working without back pain is possible
But it does take concerted effort, both on your part and the part of your chiropractor, to ensure that your spine isn’t suffering due to the nature of your job. If you are interested in using chiropractic to balance the demands of your job, give our office in Hackensack a call to schedule an appointment today.
