The Truth Hurts: Muscle & Joint Pain in the U.S.

March 7, 2014

If you’ve started to experience back, neck and shoulder pain, you’re not alone. According to a new study, 85 percent of people in the United States experience muscle or joint pain at some point in their lives.

The study found that back pain, muscle and joint aches were relatively equal among different regions, and between men and women. The place where people experienced the most discomfort was the back, with the shoulders and neck coming in at a close second.

People are going to great lengths to cure the unbearable pain they’re experiencing, so much so that last year American’s spent 50 billion on lower back pain treatment alone.

Medication, hot and cold treatments and massage were all common methods of management, but most forgot about prevention. Paying attention to posture and ergonomics is essential to help prevent the risk of serious pain, and a standing desk can help you get there.

Xdesk was designed with ergonomics in mind, and comes with other options so you can achieve the best standing and sitting position. And don’t forget to use other accessories as well, like an anti-fatigue floor mat and comfortable shoes to give even greater support.

Check out the infographic below to learn more about the statistics surrounding widespread pain.
