Your workday might not feel like a workout, but even light office work has an impact on our bodies. If you spend long hours seated at your desk, chances are you’ve noticed that you don’t quite feel your best by the end of the day. Perhaps you feel sore or stiff when you leave for the day, or are even starting to experience some pain. You’re certainly not alone. In fact, lower back pain is a very common problem for many office workers, and often causes them to seek professional care. Fortunately, through gentle chiropractic treatment, you can relieve the pain and discomfort caused by long hours at the office and get back to feeling your best.
Sitting Can Result In A Surprising Amount Of Strain.
Staying seated at your desk may seem like a safe and comfortable way to spend your workday, but spending a prolonged period of time sitting down can actually put a great deal of pressure on your spine. Combined with poor posture, those long hours spent in front of your computer can cause a tremendous amount of strain.
Beyond putting pressure on your spine, long periods of sitting can also restrict blood flow. Reduced circulation can put even more strain on your spine and even increase the likelihood of a back injury.
Chiropractic Treatment For Corporate “Athletes".
If you’re starting to feel the physical effects of your marathon workdays, it’s time to seek chiropractic treatment. Through effective, hands-on treatment methods, Dr. Bomberg will be able to restore your body’s alignment and relieve your pain and discomfort.
- Adjustments. Long periods of sitting, especially with poor posture, put pressure on your spine and can lead to misalignment of the spine. Imbalance can lead to major discomfort that can spread to other areas of your body. Left untreated, this imbalance can lead to symptoms including numbness, tingling, tightness, sore muscles, and even pain. Fortunately, we can alleviate the symptoms it creates using chiropractic adjustments. If you’re experiencing discomfort, it’s time to explore your treatment options. At Bomberg Chiropractic, we employ a variety of gentle, effective, and modern techniques to help you achieve the best possible results. Early intervention can not only help relieve discomfort, but also prevent it from becoming worse or affecting other areas.
- Movement Based Massage. Injury, strain, and repetitive movements can lead to the buildup of scar tissue. Scar tissue can have a major impact in your range of motion and overall comfort. As scar tissue develops, tissues that were once able to move freely may become restricted. Over time, your muscle strength may decline, nerves can become trapped within scar tissue, and painful problems such as tendonitis can occur. These hidden issues surface as symptoms including reduced mobility, pain, loss of muscle strength, and even tingling or numbness. During an ART therapy session, Dr. Bomberg will both examine and treat your soft tissue in order to gently correct problems using precise movements. Tissues including muscles, ligaments, nerves, and tendons are evaluated based on their texture, mobility, and tightness. If an abnormality is detected in a specific area, it is treated with carefully applied tension and movements.
While we can’t reduce the number of hours you spend in the workplace, we can treat the discomfort it creates. Through careful adjustments and state of the art techniques, Dr. Bomberg can help restore your body’s alignment and provide lasting relief.
