Workplace injuries are incredibly common, but many people tend to think that they only affect employees who have strenuous or physically demanding jobs. While it is true that these types of jobs are the cause of many workplace injuries, many chiropractic offices are seeing workplace injuries from employees who do not have particularly physically demanding jobs. Many of these employees are office workers, yet they come into our office complaining about back, shoulder, and neck pain. If you are suffering from any of these symptoms, to call a chiropractor on our team. We at Enhanced Living Chiropractic serving Greer, SC, Inman, SC, Simpsonville, SC, and Travelers Rest, SC, know a lot about how chiropractic care may help with various types of pain.
Types of Pain to Bring to a Chiropractor on Our Team
1. Pain in the fingers and wrists: Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the most common types of office injuries, usually brought on by stressing out the muscles and nerves of the hands.
2. Lower back pain: Sitting in the same position without being able to move or stretch can put a lot of stress on the muscles in the lower back. Over time, the muscles in this area may start to compensate for the added strain by moving out of place. This may cause the bones and nerves in the body to compensate for this movement, which may cause further problems as other muscles move to compensate for this. All of this may cause lower back pain.
3. Shoulder and neck pain: This is often caused by leaning forward, usually at a desk, which may make it hard for the muscles in this area of the body to stretch out properly which may cause undue stress.
