Neck pain from sitting at your desk? Try Chiropractic
Posted Jul 24 2008 8:11am
Most of the patients we treat at Executive Express Chiropractic in downtown San Francisco, spend their day sitting at a desk in front of a computer. Many of them go home and do it some more. So we treat our share of neck pain that happens from long hours of sitting, keying, and mousing.
Sure, there are ways to counteract the stresses that are put on the neck, and the rest of the spine from sitting...but most people don't know what they are (proper ergonomics and exercises). Some people know what to do and they still don't do it. When you're working and trying to meet deadlines and get stuff done...it's common just to deal with the aches and pains in the neck until they become unbearable and reach crisis mode.
Well...I will let you in on a little secret that some very smart people know...routine chiropractic care can help your body to adapt to the stresses of grinding it out at the computer all day. And a chiropractor can teach you what you need to know about exercise and ergonomics.
I have patients that come in 1-4 times per month...and they have been doing so for years. Are they rich? Some of them are..and very busy too...they just make it happen because they value their health. But for the most part...my chiropractic patients are just like you and me...working in the corporate jungle to support our families and save for the future.
They are smart because they know the time and expense they put into the chiropractic care pays dividends. They can work longer hours, get sick less often, have fewer episodes of neck and back pain...and spend more quality time with their families.
You see chiropractic care is not expensive...as long as you value what it gives you...health and well being...and resistance to stress. I mean after all...do you really have time to be in pain?
