Due to the increasing number of jobs that require extensive computer use the number of injuries to the neck, shoulder and back have also increased. The repetition of sitting in one position and using the mouse causes undue stress upon the spine and joints. If the person is also using poor posture the problems increase exponentially.
These problems are causing neck pain, shoulder pain, arm pain, hand pain, headaches and back pain. Symptoms of numbness and tingling are also being found.
Dr. Wong has treated several cases in the past few weeks. These injuries respond well to chiropractic care, muscle therapy and stretching. Prevention of injuries requires proper ergonomics, home stretching and postural improvement.
