Sciatica, Sciatic Nerve, Back Pain, Back AcheMany may think of back problems as being something only blue collar workers have to worry about, but that cushy office job can wreak havoc on a person’s back as well. Sitting at a desk for hours on end can have serious consequences.

According to the Bureau of Labor, injuries that affect workers most commonly occur in the shoulder, back, legs, arms, abdomen, and wrist. Many of these injuries are common in offices.

What Causes Injuries in the Workplace?

Falls are one of the most common issues. Falls are most often caused by slippery floors, dim lighting, loose carpeting, or objects on the floor. All of these problems affect offices. Other common injuries come from sitting for long periods of time, using a keyboard all day, and lifting heavy items the wrong way. Here are a few safety measures to keep in mind.

Upper Cervical Support

Your neck deals with a lot of strain at the office too, especially if your monitor is not right at eye level. An upper cervical chiropractor can help you to ensure that a repetitive motion injury does not occur in your neck. A misalignment of the upper cervical spine can have far reaching effects on the body.

At Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Sacramento, we use both the NUCCA technique and QSM3 to diagnose and correct upper cervical misalignments. Whether you spend a lot of time at your desk or have fallen in the workplace, I strongly recommend an examination.

Sciatica, Back Pain, Back Ache, Neck Pain, Neck Ache, Natural ReliefSciatica is a condition in which pain radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which travels from the low back through the hips, buttocks, and down each leg.  Pain, sometimes severe, can be felt anywhere along the nerve, but it is most commonly felt along a path between the buttocks and the back of the thigh or calf.  The pain can range from a mild ache to a sharp excruciating sensation.

Although it may seem strange to consider, since the pain is elsewhere, often the source of sciatic nerve pain begins with a misalignment in the neck.  The spine is connected from top to bottom by many joints, ligaments, and muscles.  When the top two vertebrae in the neck, the keystone of the spine, misalign, it causes a cascading effect of problems.  Over time, this head and neck misalignment distorts a person’s posture, ultimately leading to imbalances in the low back that can cause sciatica.

In his Fair Oaks upper cervical chiropractic clinic, Dr. Gottlieb can determine if a misalignment of the top two vertebrae in the neck is the root cause of your sciatica.  Treating the symptoms of sciatic pain will not lead to lasting relief if the root cause lies in the neck.  In many cases, an upper cervical chiropractic adjustment is the best way to achieve natural, lasting relief from sciatica.  While it might seem counter-intuitive at first to start at the neck when the pain is in the lower back and leg, getting to the bottom of the issue is always your best bet.
