Whilst it’s true that jobs that are heavy in sitting, such as office work, can lead to a whole range of joint and muscle issues, that doesn’t mean that standing jobs are exempt. If you’re spending a lot of time on your feet at work, you can suffer from just as many painful problems. To help you ease these, or maybe even stop them from happening in the first place, our team have put together different chiropractic treatments you could try out.
If you know you’ll be standing a lot, making sure your posture is correct is a great preventative measure you can take to prevent problems such as back pain, but also for resolving issues that have already occurred. At CW Chiropractic, we’ll analyse your posture as you stand, pointing out problem areas that could or have caused other issues. Once these are identified, we can then begin treating them and help you stay on your feet comfortably for longer.
Easing Back Pain
Back pain is a common problem amongst people who stand a lot for work, and yours might begin gradually or hit you suddenly. Either way, it can be hugely painful and even put you out of work for a while, which you definitely don’t want. We can help you improve back health and treat any issues with chiropractic treatments, identifying what exactly is causing your pain and providing the correct help. This can include:
- Spinal manipulation,
- Stretching exercises,
- Muscle techniques.
Your back is incredibly fragile, so making sure you come to us before your problems become serious is vital – even if it’s just a twinge, it’s better to get help than wait.
If you find a problem keeps coming back because you’re standing for so long, preventative treatments are a great way to finally resolve the issue. This involves finding out which treatment gives you the best chiropractic benefits, be it stretches or avoiding certain positions, and repeating it. Chances are if a treatment works it’ll continue to keep your pain away even after the initial problem has cleared up, so it’s definitely worth carrying it on.
If you’re on your feet a lot and want to stop any potential issues or clear up a current problem, be sure to check out more of our services to find the one that’s right for you. Not sure what that is? Get in touch with us directly instead and we’ll use your symptoms to help you pick the right treatment. The chiropractic benefits are definitely worth it!
