Richmond Chiropractic Care Uses Exercise to Relieve Neck and Related Pain in Office Workers

Office workers experience neck pain. Not too surprising. Today, who is not an office worker as most all Richmond workers must work at desks and computers? Richmond neck pain and related conditions like Richmond headache and arm pain are widespread. Johnson Chiropractic assists so many Richmond office workers with neck pain and can help you find relief of Richmond neck pain, too, with gentle, relieving Richmond chiropractic care, spinal manipulation, and exercise.


How prevalent is neck pain in office workers? 52.9% of office workers say they have neck pain in a new study. Only low back pain (55.1%) and back pain (53%) were bigger complaints. (1) Johnson Chiropractic sees many Richmond office workers with neck pain and shoulder and arm pain...and helps ease that pain!


Traditionally, recommendations to help office workers with neck pain involved ergonomic design of the office environment. That goes only so far. Some variables that lead to musculoskeletal pain like neck pain and back pain were sitting at a desk for a long period without a break, a computer mouse too far from the keyboard, a chair with only lumbar and arm support, head at a 45° angle, not exercising daily, and being stressed out at work. It is a mix of an ergonomically set work area as well as a healthy lifestyle that involves exercise that will help prevent pain best. (1) Johnson Chiropractic is all about a healthy, balanced lifestyle for Richmond chiropractic patients.


Exercise helps Richmond office workers fend off Richmond neck pain and headache. A simple 60 minutes per week of strength training a week reduced office workers’ headaches in number and intensity. It didn’t matter in the study how the hour is spread throughout the week. (2) Johnson Chiropractic is sure our Richmond office workers with neck pain and headache can find an hour a week to help themselves! For those with cervical radiculopathy – pain that extends extending into the arm – stabilization exercises are likely effective to ease pain and increase patients’ quality of life and posture. (3) For long term results, stretching exercises in addition to ergonomic modification for office workers is essential. (4) Johnson Chiropractic helps Richmond neck pain sufferers find useful neck exercises that fit into their lifestyles to reduce and fend off neck pain and its related pain like radiculopathy and headache.
