Blue collar workers are the backbone of our nation. They work hard every day, often at physically demanding jobs, to keep our country running. However, what many of these workers don't realize is that their bodies are also working hard.
As a result, they may be at risk for an injury or other health issues that could impact their ability to work and live comfortably. When a blue collar worker does get injured, he or she may not have the time or money to seek medical treatment.
This is where chiropractic care comes in. Chiropractors can help treat injuries, provide pain relief and more without the need for expensive procedures and prescriptions.
Blue collar workers often experience physical discomfort more than others. Back pain is more prevalent in blue collar workers than white collar workers, and it is the most common pain that blue-collar workers experience.
Why? Because of heavy lifting. When you lift a load from waist height to shoulder height, you're creating torque on your spine which can cause disc degeneration and other issues over time if not corrected. The problem is, many blue collar workers don't know they're doing it wrong. A lot of times they just don't have the training or education to know how to lift correctly, so they end up hurting themselves over time.
Back pain can also be caused by sitting for long periods of time in a car / truck seat. This affects a lot of truck drivers who drive long hours everyday and don't have access to a place where they can stretch out. Over time this can cause back pain as well.
While blue collar workers may not be as likely to suffer from back, neck, and hip pain than their white collar counterparts, they are more likely to suffer from chronic pain.
Why? Blue collar jobs often require heavy lifting and bending over for extended periods of time - tasks that put stress on the body's joints and muscles. All this can lead to injuries, which chiropractic care can help treat.
Chiropractors are well-equipped to address the physical stress heavy lifting places on a body, but they can also identify weaknesses inherent in your muscular structure that may make you more susceptible to injury.
Since blue collar workers are more at risk for injury, physical and mental strain, chiropractic care can easily help them with back pain, neck pain, hip pain and shoulder pain. Chiropractic can help with muscle spasms which are common in truck drivers and factor workers, and can even examine your lifestyle and work habits to see if there are any changes that need to be made.
Headache is something that should also be addressed by chiropractic care because they can lead to more serious medical concerns including lower back problems if left untreated. Joint pain is also another area where a blue collar worker may need chiropractic care; since the joints of the hands or feet take a lot of strain due to repetitive movements (such as lifting materials, sitting in uncomfortable positions for long periods of time, working on machinery, or driving trucks for long distances).
Chiropractors can adjust your spine and other joints to help you feel better throughout the day. For blue collar workers, chiropractic care is often more than simply treating a physical ailment but can also help prevent recurring injuries and keep one healthy for an extended period of time.
