Do you sit or stand all day long at work?  Do you find that it takes a toll on your back? If so, then chiropractic care can help!  Sitting or standing all day can cause stress on the musculoskeletal system, specifically the spine, causing not only back pain, but an overall feeling of discomfort, soreness, and even pain.  It can lead to chronic joint pain from not enough support for the knees, hips, feet, or other joints.  To prevent pain and increase endurance and comfort at work, consider regular visits to a Charlotte chiropractor.

The Importance of Spinal Health

The spine plays a larger role than just supporting our bodies and improving posture.  It has a vital role in overall body function.  The vertebra in the spine are responsible for allowing the body to move, twist, turn, or bend throughout the day.  The spinal cord, housed within the spine, is part of the central nervous system, meaning that it helps control the function of the body’s systems, including the organs and soft tissue.  When any one of the vertebrae that make up the spine are out of alignment, such as being twisted, turned, or generally out of place, it can have a significant impact on nervous system function.  Spinal misalignments cause nerve interference that disrupts communication within the body.  When this happens, disaster can strike in the form of headaches, back pain, neck aches, sciatica problems, joint pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and a multitude of other health conditions that can affect your comfort at work and home.  Luckily, with the help of Charlotte chiropractor Dr. Grant Lisetor, you don’t have to live in pain because of your long, grueling work days.

Proper Support Eases Pain

Some simple changes in how you sit or stand at work can have an impact on chronic pain.  For instance, proper back support when you sit for long periods of time can reduce pain.  Ergonomic chairs are designed to eliminate stress on the back and body for those who sit most of the day.  Being aware of how you sit or stand can make a big difference as well.  Sitting at a 90 degree angle with hips and knees in alignment and feet resting flat on the floor is one of the best ways to minimize discomfort when sitting and increase your stamina to sit for longer periods of time. Standing in proper alignment with your weight balanced on both feet, hips back, chest out, shoulders straight, and head up will also ease unwanted tension and stress.  But sometimes, this isn’t enough to complete alleviate pain.  If you have utilized these tips but still find yourself in pain, the question remains, “What else can I do?”
