Employees suffering from work-related headaches cost employers an estimated $13 billion a year and 113 million lost days of work, according to a recent survey by the National Headache Foundation. According to the survey, headaches result in missed days of work, decreased productivity, an inability to concentrate, and changes in mood or behavior.
Headache sufferers are turning to alternative methods for headache prevention, including chiropractic and physical therapy, to eliminate specific habits that lead to repetitive and painful headaches, such as bad posture and working conditions ranging from the height of the cubicles and chairs to the way employees sit.
Alternative methods are also being used for pain-relief education, long-term relief from headache pain, and ultimately headache prevention. If you or anyone you know suffers from headache pain, please get in to the office so we can help provide relief.
