Relief for McHenry Neck Pain Stemming from Your Job

How many times do we refer to something as a pain in the neck? Ever call your job a pain in the neck? (Be truthful! OrthoIllinois Chiropractic will keep it between us!) Certain job duties may well be a literal pain in the neck. Some simple exercises and McHenry chiropractic care could ease your neck pain gently and effectively.


Researchers have a proper name for your job’s pain in the neck issue - work-related neck-shoulder pain. Adding motor control training and ergonomic workspace modification advice for workplace motions and postures brought about positive and sustainable value in decreasing shoulder pain and neck pain. (1) Adding stretching exercises to the everyday routine lessened neck and shoulder pain and improved neck function and quality of life for office workers with chronic moderate-to-severe neck pain or shoulder pain. This study reported that the additional training in how to do neck and shoulder stretches twice daily every work day (5 days a week) truly helped in the month long program. Further, those who did the exercises less than 3 times a week reported less improvement than those who performed them more than 3 times a week. Doing the neck and shoulder exercises more improved neck function and these patients’ quality of life scores. And this study was with chronic neck pain and shoulder pain patients, those who have suffered with neck and shoulder pain for more than three months and rated their pain as 5 or more on a a 10 point scale with 10 being the most painful pain. (2) Imagine what good these types of exercises could do for early stage neck and shoulder pain office-working patients!
