Meetings, data processing, switchboard work, telephone customer service and a host of other office duties may seem easy but sitting all day actually is stressful on the spine, according to Dr. George I. Traitses of Scarborough/Markham, local representative of the Ontario Chiropractic Association (OCA). “This can lead to irritation of the nerves in the neck, and middle and lower back, resulting in general discomfort and stiffness,” says Dr. Traitses. Whether you choose a specialty chair – designed for keyboarding, reception, executive seating or drafting – or simply place a back (orthopedic) support form between you and your old chair – follow the few simple rules for good posture and work habits can help minimize problems.
I couldn’t move my neck at all and when I did it hurt like crazy. Dr. Cooper worked wonders with it and I feel so as good as I possibly could at this point.
Thank you tremendously! It’s greatly appreciated!
When I came in to get an adjustment today, my body really felt out of whack. I went to bed last night and woke up with a headache and pain in my neck. Now that tightness is gone. Also my ankles where out which he handled.
He found a calcium deficiency too, which is really good to know (and it indicates too!). I feel much more relaxed and in one piece (instead of a sore neck, aching leg, pain in the back, etc.) I feel great!
One evening I was in horrible pain and discomfort because of a pinched nerve in my neck and knotted muscles through out that area. I was a mess. I was ready to cry the whole day, when along came Dr. Cooper. He was running to his office (after hours) to pick up an invitation which had directions to the party he was running late for. I asked him if he could please help me and he didn’t hesitate for a second. He spent at least 15 minutes with me until the problem was handled! He is such a great doctor and a great person! He is not only very knowledgeable but he really cares about his patients and people! I am proud and very happy to be a patient of his!
I have been in a lot of pain over the last few months. I am starting to feel improvement. Today I noticed it doesn’t hurt as much to lean on my shoulder. My pain is so much better after the adjustment.
