At our corporate chair massage company, we offer acupressure and popular Asian approaches to stress management and chair massage as part of our training program.
Here is information on the history of stress management and corporate chair massage.
Back pain is pain in any region of the back. It is divided into neck pain (cervical), middle back pain (thoracic), lower back pain (lumbar) or coccydynia (tailbone or sacral pain) based on the segment affected. The lumbar area is the most common area for pain, as it supports most of the weight in the upper body. Episodes of back pain may be acute, sub-acute, or chronic depending on the duration. The pain may be characterized as a dull ache, shooting or piercing pain, or a burning sensation. Discomfort can radiate into the arms and hands as well as the legs or feet, and may include numbness, or weakness in the legs and arms.
When we do corporate chair massage at NYC Trade shows and other corporate events we often encounter meeting and event planners as well as employees with back pain.
Poor posture is the most common cause of chronic pain, and is a major contributor of missed work and disability.
However, it is rare for back pain to be permanently disabling. In most cases of herniated disks and stenosis, rest, injections or surgery have similar general pain resolution outcomes on average after one year. In the United States, acute low back pain is the fifth most common reason for physician visits and causes 40% of missed days off work.
Acupressure, yoga and stress reducing life coaching can also be of great help along with on-site chair massage
Additionally, it is the single leading cause of disability worldwide.
Back pain is common, with about nine out of ten adults experiencing it at some point in their life, and five out of ten working adults having it every year.
Back pain can originate from the muscles, nerves, bones, joints or other structures in the spine. Internal structures such as the gallbladder, pancreas, aorta, and kidneys may also cause referred pain in the back.
Some estimate up to 95% of Americans will experience back pain at some point in their lifetime.
The spinal cord, nerve roots, vertebral column, and muscles around the spine can all be sources of back pain
Corporate chair massage through the best events chair massage company can prevent this and reduce absenteeism.
Back pain may be classified by various methods to aid its diagnosis and management. The duration of back pain is considered in three categories, following the expected pattern of healing of connective tissue. Acute pain lasts up to 12 weeks, subacute pain refers to the second half of the acute period (6 to 12 weeks), and chronic pain is pain which persists beyond 12 weeks.
In as many as 85% of cases, no physiological cause can be found.
The synovial joints of the spine (e.g. zygapophysial joints/facet joints) have been identified as the primary source of the pain in approximately one third of people with chronic low back pain, and in most people with neck pain following whiplash.
The anterior ligaments of the intervertebral disc are extremely sensitive, and even the slightest injury can cause significant pain.
Arthritis in the joints of the back can also result in discomfort.
Approximately 98 percent of people with back pain are diagnosed with nonspecific acute back pain in which there is no serious underlying pathology
Back pain can be divided into non-radicular pain and radiculopathy. Radiculopathy occurs when there is irritation in the nerve root, causing neurologic symptoms, such as numbness and tingling. Disk herniation and foraminal stenosis are the most common causes of radiculopathy.
Spondylosis, or spinal degeneration, occurs when the intervertebral disc undergoes degenerative changes, causing the disc to fail at cushioning the vertebrae. The space between the vertebrae becomes more narrow, resulting in compression and irritation of the nerves.
Back pain can also be due to referred pain from another source. Referred pain occurs when pain is felt at a location different from the source of the pain. An abdominal aortic aneurysm and ureteral colic can both result in pain felt in the back.
Another possible cause of chronic back pain in people with otherwise normal scans is central sensitization, where an initial injury or infection causes a longer-lasting state of heightened sensitivity to pain. This persistent state maintains pain even after the initial injury has healed.
Treatment of sensitization typically involves low doses of anti-depressants.
