La Grande Chiropractic Care for Work-Related Musculoskeletal Pain

Work. We all must work. Everyone’s job requires posture(s) that may trigger pain at one time or another. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC sees the pain! Many La Grande back pain and neck pain patients who come to chiropractic bring stories of work-related pain. We are here to help!


Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is confident in its skill to relieve and manage work-related musculoskeletal pain for our La Grande chiropractic patients. Not too surprisingly, 81.7% of office workers in one study had musculoskeletal pain in at least one area. Back pain was the most frequently experienced pain for 54.8%. Neck and shoulder pain were after that. Curiously, musculoskeletal system pain was found to be high in office workers whose physical activity levels were found to be low. 58.5% of these workers reported being “active” physically, 37.3% were less active, 4.1% were very active. (1) Research shows that in-the-workplace exercise interventions were effective in addressing musculoskeletal disorders and in decreasing pain for office workers. (2) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC values the optimism this brings for our La Grande back and neck pain patients!


Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC treats work-related pain according to the guidelines of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which integrates gentle spinal manipulation along with exercise, nutrition and other recommendations.  We appreciate researchers’ description of work-related musculoskeletal pain disorders as those painful conditions brought on by too little usage of the musculoskeletal system during work. Exercise, education, ergonomic direction, massage are pretty usual ways of dealing with and attempting to prevent pain. Most suggestions like this were for workers to do outside of the workplace. Recently, researchers suggested the value of specific, individualized, resistance strengthening exercises in the workplace to reduce pain, fatigue, and discomfort in worker’s neck and upper extremities. (3) That is a promising idea. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC sees the value in taking care of oneself at home as well as in the workplace!
