dreamstime_xxl_14956032Do you find yourself with constant upper back or neck pain? Do you get chronic headaches or have pain that radiates down into your arms? Do you find your neck making a “crack” sound every time you go to stretch? All of these can be related to simply stress, but they can also be an indication of potentially larger health problems. All of these symptoms can be alleviated by the chiropractic experts at Progressive Health and Rehab in Gahanna, Ohio.

According to the Health and Safety Executive of England, “Stress, depression or anxiety and musculoskeletal disorders accounted for the majority of days lost due to work-related ill health.” This is true not just for England, but many first world countries including the United States. When work-related stress is added to poor ergonomics, the only possible outcome is chronic neck, back, and head pain.

Seeking chiropractic help can help in a variety of ways. Not only does chiropractic work help with skeletal structure and alignment issues, but it also helps with musculoskeletal concerns. In fact, the best chiropractors utilize a variety of both chiropractic and massage techniques in order to relax and stretch the muscles, while making sure that any skeletal problems are corrected. The two systems work hand in hand, one heavily affecting the other.

Chiropractic care in conjunction with proper ergonomics at work can help to alleviate chronic headaches, upper back tension pain, and tingling in the hands that come from workplace stress and poor ergonomics. Don’t let the pain make you irritable or think that you’re stuck with it forever. Contact Progressive Health and Rehab to book your chiropractic appointment today!
