I understand that very typical activities, so typical that people might not even think about them, such as:
- Walking primarily or only with shoes instead "flipflops" and alike
- Using proper shoe inserts with shoes
- Wearing what I can name "orthopedic sock devices" instead regular socks (I don't know the professional term)
- Working half day or one day with a standing stance and another half day or one day in sitting (or in other, better intervals)
- Changing a chair to one whom gives better support
- Having a 90 minutes massage in an authorized massage entity with skilled, moral/ethical workers
- Changing rest/sleep pillows, maybe per ergonomics expert (objective) advice
- Sleep hygiene changes (permitting longer sleep and/or preventing nightmares in case of nightmare disorder)
- Dietary changes
Could save many orthopedic and radiologic tests, rare(?) cases of misdiagnosis and pharmaceutical intervention as well as surgery.
I never came across an orthopedic system with the above or similar guidelines.
Are there standardized first line treatments in neck and/or shoulder and/or back pain for an otherwise healthy person? (someone that actually has no condition or disease at the time of pain)
There is no understanding-problem to solve here; I don't ask this about a personal medical condition but just of curiosity to expand general knowledge about different guidelines in different systems.
