Where Did Your Shoulder Pain Come from?

If you weren’t involved in an accident or some clear, known incident that caused your problems, what happened?

Maybe you slept in bed the wrong way, which people often have little control over without the right support. Maybe your desk or chair isn’t helpful, or you might have posture problems that you didn’t notice.

A chiropractor can help with all of those problems. It all starts with a consultation, with questions that come from knowing how much pain the entire world deals with as a part of normal life.

If you’re working, it’s time to learn about your work environment. You can only do so much to improve what your employer gives you, but how do you lift and move around loads?

Your employer might not care now, but safety professionals could care if they have documented problems from a chiropractor. Chiropractors can help you discuss the situation with employers, safety officials, or even look for better employment fits.

Ergonomics for Pain Relief

Telling you about your lifestyle’s problems is only part of the picture. Some may read this while suddenly realizing their posture or screen position problems, while others may know the issue and not have a realistic answer.

Ergonomics is the study of how the human body works with objects. It’s about a comfortable and efficient fit, not just one or the other. There’s a way to use almost anything that reduces discomfort and allows more efficient use.

For most people with shoulder pain, this means controlling their tools and furniture. Having a good chair that has an adjustable height and lumbar support for the back, using harnesses at work to carry certain things without having to twist in uncomfortable ways, and using mounts that adjust the level of their screens or tools.

The most expensive answers involve buying expensive chairs or desks, but that doesn’t have to be the answer. Different mounts, lifts, blocks, or surfaces can be added at smaller price points to offer temporary, adjustable support. You could even use these options permanently, although working towards buying or building equipment more suited to the task is better.
