Do Richmond office workers get neck pain? You bet they do! Just like Richmond small business owners and students and professors and secretaries and executive assistants and content writers for websites! Even the family accountant and chief bill payer gets neck pain! Why? We all - well, most of us - work over computers and at desks and in chairs that aren't very neck friendly. Johnson Chiropractic relieves neck pain and has information for how to counter it as well.
Now we don't want to rag on just the desktop computers; the notebook computers are not helpful for our necks (and wrists!) either. A recent study about notebook computer usage found that a 12 degree incline under a notebook resting on a desk sharpened neck and head postures while hardly heightening wrist extension which shows to be acceptable. (1) Nice bit of info ...
So what should we do about all this neck pain experienced by Richmond computer users?
A review study recently recommended muscle strengthening or endurance exercise to help neck pain and muscle endurance exercise for reducing pain-related disability. (2) What are these?
Muscle strengthening involves improving the amount of force you can exert against resistance. Push-ups and working with free weights are examples. For the neck muscles, working with a neck exerciser or against your own hand resistance produces results.
Muscle endurance exercise builds muscle over time with more repetitions and such to get the muscles to work longer.
While Johnson Chiropractic is thankful for the advice, our Richmond chiropractor will likely merge chiropractic spinal manipulation with exercise (and maybe throw in a few tips for a more ergonomically friendly workspace!) for your Richmond neck pain relief, best clinical outcome, and future neck pain prevention. Our Cox Technic system tells us to expect for relief of at least 50% in 30 days. So many of our Richmond neck pain patients report relief in just a visit or two while some take a little longer. But our 50% Rule sets your expectation and guides our chiropractic treatment plan for your relief.
