The majority of chiropractic problems seen in office workers come down to poor posture and lack of movement. The simple act of sitting is enough to be harmful to all parts of the body if done for long enough periods of time.
Over time these common sedentary day-to-day activities can result in postural and spinal problems. This spinal stress or strain can interfere with nerve and muscle function and a loss of the critical movement between the vertebrae causing pain and other symptoms that drive patients to our clinic to seek relief with our unique combination of treatment, posture correction and desk exercises.
There are many conditions that can be linked to poor desk posture and sedentary activity. Some may surprise you,as they can seem completely unrelated to your posture. The stress on your spine can alter your alignment and reduce the critical movement between each vertebra that's needed to keep you feeling well.
The most common symptoms that arise from your workspace include:
- Neck pain or neck ache
- Tingling in the arm, fingers or leg
- Frozen shoulder/loss of function in the shoulder
- Tightness in the neck and shoulders
- Tightness in the lower back when you get up from your chair
