Have Chronic Low Back Pain? Your Job Might Be The Culprit!

Dr. Pete Tsiglieris, our chiropractic doctor for backpain based in Redwood City, is not new to back pain complaints, and with thousands of patients he’s helped, he has also observed a high number of low back pain caused by their patients' jobs.

People working jobs requiring repetitive movements, including lifting, bending, or twisting, are at a higher risk for back pain. On the other hand, jobs that call for prolonged sitting or standing are prone to lower back pain.


List of Jobs That are at High Risk for Low Back Pain

1. Drivers and Pilots

Back pain and injury are not rare for professional drivers, especially those who drive for most of the week with 8-10 hour shifts. For long-haul flight pilots, prolonged sitting is also a common concern. Keeping a single position for long takes a toll on your back. Stretching once in a while is recommended by a chiropractic doctor for backpain based in Redwood City to wake up your muscles and joints and let your blood supply flow smoothly.

2. Manual Laborers and Warehouse Workers

Manual labor is a category that encompasses many different jobs that are primarily physical. The majority of these workers spend the entire day performing repetitive tasks, heavy lifting, bending, twisting, and even engaging in awkward positions to get the job done. 

3. Nurses & Healthcare Providers

This includes dentists and surgeons too. Many healthcare professionals work long hours daily attending to patients, and most often than not, their posture is the least of their worries, which brings an onset of pain, including low back pain.

4. Office Workers

Due to chronic back pain, many office workers visit a chiropractic doctor for backpain based in Redwood City. Office workers sit for almost 8 hours a day while working on their desks, and sometimes the positioning of the computer or desk is not designed ergonomically, which leads to back strain for many office workers.

5. Store Personnel

Whether you're working the cash register or are tasked to keep an eye on and maintain a particular section, you are required to stand for a long time, making it uncomfortable for your back. In addition, grocery checkout personnel tend to carry and lift items repetitively, which can strain the neck and back.
