Break Through Your Pain

Graphic: Pain & Productivity in Today's WorkplaceAccording to a survey conducted by the American Osteopathic Association, 2 in 3 office workers have experienced physical pain in the last six months while nearly 1 in 4 believe it’s just a standard part of having an office job. This misperception can lead office workers to ignore or undertreat their pain, creating a debilitating cycle that results in chronic or reoccurring pain.

To address this issue, the AOA is launching a new phase of the “Break Through Your Pain” public education campaign to help office workers be productive and pain-free. See the tools below for tips on how you can take charge of your pain at work.
