Have you ever started having a particular pain that now doesn’t want to go away? Have you paid attention to when and how it starts? Aren’t you curious about why is it happening? Many times, the pain is related to common daily activities, like the ones you have to do in your work occupation.

Pain and related occupations:

1. Shoulder pain


In this group, we have hairdressers, carpenters, swimmers, weightlifters, car washers, and painters, among others.

Persons affected are in occupations like machine operators, truck drivers, postal workers, stockroom workers, first responders, mechanics, and construction workers.

People in other occupations are also at high risk of developing pain. Therefore, it is very important to follow safety measures to avoid work-related injuries and visit your primary care provider if you are experiencing any of these pains. It is most likely, that you will need an imaging study to assess the affected area. From there, the options might be medications to control pain, physical therapy, local injections, or maybe surgery. Don’t wait until it is too late.

As always, remember to stay healthy and come back for the next topic.

As we age, we need to be so careful of injury. Exercise helps to strengthen muscles and keep them injury free.

This list is so true! I work in front of the computer all day, and I mostly have neck pain and shoulder pain. I guess it's from sitting in the same position for too long. Every now and then, I will try to move my body a little to break up the tension.
