As a sports chiropractor I do indeed work on plenty of people who meet the traditional definition of an athlete but a majority of my patients fall into the category of office/corporate athlete. What is an office/corporate athlete? In my definition it is a person that goes to a job and completes the same actions day after day, week after week and year after year. These little actions can cause a series of micro-traumas that may not be memorable but when you add up the cumulative effect of them you can have quite disastrous results.
There are several things that these office athletes can complain of but over the next couple of weeks I will focus on just a couple that show up quite often in my office. The first is upper cross syndrome which may consist of neck, upper back, shoulder or headache pain. The second is lower cross syndrome which may consist of lower back, hip or leg pain. Finally, I will discuss more specifically the headaches that many people suffer from because of these little micro-traumas.
We will talk about what these specific conditions are and what we do in my office to help people with them. Stay tuned for the next couple of weeks to find out just how we find it, fix it and get you back to living your life the way you want.
