When many think of workplace injuries, they may imagine more physical jobs as being the culprit. Actions such as lifting wrong, falling off ladders, or twisting improperly are common causes of workplace injuries. However, more and more people seem to be doing office-type work, such as sending emails, typing on a computer all day, and generally being inactive. Can this be dangerous?
Having a sedentary work day can do damage to one’s health and well-being. Research by the Bureau of Labor Statistics reveals that the most common injuries endured at work involve the shoulders, arms, legs, wrists, abdomen, and back. Interestingly, most of these injuries can be avoided. It is vital for employers to find ways to help improve the negative impact of these jobs on their employees. It is a good idea to involve employees in following specific health and safety regulations so that they remain healthy and reduce the risk of accidents.
Keeping the Spine Healthy to Reduce Workplace Injuries
If a person has endured a workplace injury or would like to be proactive in preventing one, having a healthy upper cervical spine is vital. Here at Synergy Chiropractic, we focus on the top bones of the spine – the C1 and C2 vertebrae. These bones easily misalign due to their shape and mobility, along with the location. They lie in the same area as the brainstem and act as its protector. If a misalignment has occurred in these bones that is even as small as ¼ of a millimeter, the entire systems of the body can be thrown off. This is because a misalignment here places undue pressure on the brainstem, causing it to send improper signals to the brain. This can lead to a variety of health problems.
We employ a gentle method that helps to realign the bones, often leading to relief of pain from workplace injuries as the body begins to function at its optimum level once again.
