Chiropractic care for a Working Lifestyle
Did you know?
Over eight million working days are lost in Britain due to work related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSDs) averaging 16.3 days lost for each case.
34% of days lost at work due to ill health were because of WRMSDs.
Within the eight million working days lost due to WRMSDs 39% of days lost were due to back disorders.
The numbers really are striking. Sitting and standing for prolonged periods of time and lifting heavy/regularly can lead to extra stresses on the spine. These stressed can be known to cause dysfunctions of the spine and lead to strains/sprains of the muscles and ligaments. Chiropractors are professionally trained to diagnose, analyse and treat a range of musculoskeletal disorders especially relating to the spine.
