PAIN AND HEADACHE
Masks and mask-wearing have down sides. A
study of nurses explained that headache bothered
73.4%, extreme sweating impacted 59.6%, breathing difficulty disturbed
36.7%. Goggle or glasses’ fogging was reported by 91.7%. N95
wearers stated issues with nasal bridge scarring in 76.6% and
pain and indentation of the back of the ears by 66.4%. (1) Another
study of nurses who wore masks and other PPE for more
than 4 hours at a time discovered that vision problems affected
47.9% of them as did redness of cheeks/nose bridge/ears, dry mouth, and
headaches. (2) A study of healthcare workers focused
on the occurrence of headache throughout COVID-19.
81% said that they developed new PPE
(mask/eye wear)-related headaches. 33% of them described experiencing headaches before
COVID. 91.3% of those pre-existing headache sufferers stated that increased
mask/eye wear equipment affected their headache control and
work. (3) Overall headache occurrence due to PPE (mask/eye) was 62% in another
report. Working more than 8 hours at a time increased
the risk of new headache occurrence. Discomfort,
blurred vision, and reduced concentration were other reported issues. Wearing
such equipment worsened pre-existing headache issues
and triggered new headache experiences.

NEW PAIN ISSUES AND HELP WITH CHIROPRACTIC
As stated by the American Chiropractic
Association, our Murfreesboro chiropractic patients are not alone! Chiropractic
patients across the country are telling of some new pain
issues with their neck, shoulders, and upper back during COVID experience, especially those
who wear masks for long hours. Certainly, stress is a contributor to pain in normal life. In these times, it
is no surprise that patients are reporting
more pain. Masks may well contribute to pain in the neck, shoulders,
and upper back. Masks may impact vision. If a mask lies
too high, the wearer may tuck the chin to see better or hold
the neck in a different way to see more clearly.
A better fitting mask may help. More frequent breaks may be
of benefit. Stretching more often may help. A walk to de-stress is a great
idea! (5) Your Murfreesboro chiropractor knows
these issues and is ready to help!
