I lived the corporate life for 14 years. I know what it is like to work 60-70 hours per week on a regular basis. I would regularly spend 10+ hours per day on the computer. I even went through a 9-month period where I worked 7 days a week nonstop. Luckily, Sundays were lighter days because I “only” had to work 3-4 hours those days. Needless to say, I developed a lot of neck pain, pain between the shoulder blades, and low back pain. I was even getting carpal-tunnel like problems in my right hand from typing and mousing so much. I later discovered that “Mouse-hand” is becoming a very common diagnosis, right along with “Texting-thumb”!
Living in pain is terrible. Knowing that the pain is caused from your work is even worse. The pain affects your job performance – how many times have you made a silly yet costly mistake because you just lost focus due to that burning knot? The pain affects your personal life – have you ever snapped at a love one and realized it was because you were hurting from working all day? The pain affects your health – how many times have we ate something unhealthy or did something unhealthy because we were just sick of sitting at the desk all day?
Regular massage therapy can help relieve the pain, and get you functioning normally again. I have seen people get promotions, make more commission, improve their home life, and just get healthier overall by using massage therapy. It has worked for other people, and it can work for you too!
