Researchers have a formal name for your job’s pain in the neck problem - work-related neck-shoulder pain. Adding motor control training and ergonomic workspace modification advice for workplace motions and postures resulted in positive and sustainable advantage in reducing shoulder pain and neck pain. (1) Adding stretching exercises to the daily routine decreased neck and shoulder pain and improved neck function and quality of life for office workers with chronic moderate-to-severe neck pain or shoulder pain. This study reported that the extra training in how to do neck and shoulder stretches twice a day every work day (5 days a week) truly helped in the month long program. Further, those who did the exercises less than 3 times a week got less improvement than those who did them more than 3 times a week. Performing the neck and shoulder exercises more improved neck function and these patients’ quality of life scores. And this study was with chronic neck pain and shoulder pain patients, those who have experienced neck and shoulder pain for more than three months and rated their pain as 5 or more on a a 10 point scale with 10 being the most painful pain. (2) Imagine what benefit these types of exercises could do for early stage neck and shoulder pain office-working patients!
