Most people don’t exactly look forward to going back to work in the New Year. After the enjoyment of Christmas (and hopefully a few relaxing lie ins!), the thought of facing those dark, miserable January mornings is enough for some of us to want to hide under the duvets until Spring! But if you’re suffering from back pain, the concept of work can leave you with a bit more than just the “January Blues”. According to our experienced Stoke on Trent chiropractor, many people who suffer from back pain often feel frustrated and confused when it comes to their rights at work. While most patients want to work, back pain can make some duties extremely challenging and this contributes to ongoing stress and anxiety.
Our experienced chiropractor advises that you talk to your employer and a safety representative if you are suffering from pain or discomfort at work. Your employer may be able to put you in touch with occupational health support and make adaptations to your duties so that you can undertake your work in a way that is better suited to you.
Remember that your employer has to protect your health and safety in the workplace by law and they will appreciate your honesty about your condition. The more transparent you are about your condition and your abilities, the better help you will receive.
