A brand new Amazon.com fulfillment center has opened its doors here in Seattle, not too far from Stability Health Center’s offices. And while we’re just as excited as you are to take advantage of same-day delivery from Amazon.com, we also see the potential for helping people prevent and resolve chronic back pain through a combination of muscular massage therapy and Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP).
Fulfillment centers are a great way to create jobs in the community. Most of the time the work involves sorting packages, moving inventory, packing and unpacking shipments, and other forms of manual labor. This type of work will definitely bring home a paycheck, but it might also trigger chronic back pain and the like.
By using a combination of muscular massage therapy and targeted chiropractic care, Stability Health Center could help ensure your new job at a fulfillment center doesn’t become a catalyst for long-term pain.
Massage therapy loosens muscles
Unless you’re a frequent gym-goer, your muscles probably aren’t getting an intense daily workout. That’s quick to change if you’re suddenly employed at a fulfillment center, however! Between lifting, moving, and handling packages of varying weights and sizes, your muscles are in for a very quick change of pace.
When you go from passive use of your muscles to active, every day, strenuous use, there are bound to be side effects. For most people, it’s fatigue and soreness. For others, it can be minor strains, pulled muscles, or even tears. Because your job involves flexing your muscles each and every day, you’re not going to have much time in between shifts to let them recover.
Muscular massage therapy is a great way to facilitate beneficial healing and alleviate some of the chronic tension you might be feeling. Finessing muscles and massaging them works to facilitate blood flow and stimulate nerve tissue. This helps expedite the healing process.
Seeking muscular massage therapy is a great way to relieve physical stress and “reset” your body naturally, so you’re better prepared for the stress of future work.
Complementing with corrective care
Chiropractic care is the next step towards healing your body if you maintain a physically demanding job. After loosening up your muscles and promoting blood flow with muscular massage therapy, corrective chiropractic care can help reassure spinal stability.
If you’re lifting heavy objects all day, for example, your back muscles are going to endure a lot of stress. They’ll tighten up, which can cause your spine to absorb more than its fair share of stress. This can lead to compression or subluxations (misalignments). After only a few work shifts, you might easily develop a small spinal issue that has big effects on the way you feel.
Choosing chiropractic care to complement muscular massage therapy is a great way to avoid potential long-term spinal problems. You’ll be able to maintain better spinal health, which means feeling better, which means working to your fullest potential at your job!
Whether you’re slinging orders at the newly opened Amazon.com fulfilment center down the way or you’ve enjoyed a long-time career in a different warehouse, it’s important to consider your spinal health. Stop on by Stability Health Center today for a free consultation with Dr. Justin Favreau, and to learn more about how a combination of muscular massage therapy and targeted chiropractic care might benefit you. Using the CBP approach to assessing spinal health, we can tell you exactly what shape your spine is in!
Chiropractic BioPhysics, or CBP, is one of the most scientific, researched, and results-oriented corrective care techniques. CBP-trained chiropractors aim to realign the spine back to health, eliminating nerve interference and addressing the source of pain, fatigue, and disease. As with all chiropractic care, CBP is gentle, painless, and non-invasive.
