Is Your Job Causing Your Back Pain?

Back Pain, Back Ache, Work Injury, Job

You've heard people talking about that cushy job. They work all their lives to get it. They dream about sitting in the big, comfortable chair with a view you can only imagine. All your day consists of is signing a few papers and collecting a paycheck while you relax in your office. Then you go home to a big, nice house and relax some more. Sounds great, right?

Even if that kind of job does exist, it comes with a cost to your health. Being sedentary eight hours a day can take a toll on the spine. How is this so?

The Bureau of Labor Statistics lists the back, wrist, shoulder, arm, abdomen, and legs as the body parts that suffer the most workplace injuries. The majority of these happen because of a situation that could have been avoided. What are some of these situations?

  • Improper lighting for the area
  • Something left on the floor that shouldn't be there
  • Floors that are wet and cause people to slip
  • Carpet that is loose

Who is at Risk?

You probably imagine the answer to that would be those that work in jobs where manual labor and lifting is a big part of their day. Would you be surprised to learn that those that are typing on keyboards, sitting for long amounts of time, or various other jobs can also be at risk for injuries?

So, what can you do to avoid injury at work? Largely, that depends on the kind of work you do, the environment you are working in, and the responsibilities you or your employees take on. If you have already suffered a workplace injury, what can you do?

"After 30 plus years of almost daily headaches and increasing severe debilitating migraines, I am pain free. I had tried everything, including 3 different chiropractors, medical tests, food allergy tests, special prism glasses, massage, etc. Dr. Perkins was a life changer for sure. Thanks to Dr. Perkins, I now know what it is like to live without pain. For someone with my headache history, this is a miracle"... Kathy Hiatt
