Ways Farmers Can Prevent/Reduce Pain

Posted: Updated:

Men and women in the farming field often experience pain during daily chores and throughout the day (low back pain, neck and shoulder pain, arthritis, and so on). One might say that pain is just "part of the job" when it comes to farming. However, this does not have to be the case.

There are countless things farmers can put into practice during their daily routines that can help prevent pain, or reduce it. Getting into the habit of stretching every morning is a great way to prepare the muscles for the physically-demanding chores farmers complete on a regular basis.

To download a copy of the daily stretching routine, click on the link: Farmer Daily Stretching Program (PDF, 2 Legal Pages, 2785KB).

If you have questions about these stretching exercises, or for further information regarding muscle and joint pain prevention, contact Anna Lewandowski at AnnaLewandowski@creighton.edu.
