Depends on type of: This does depend on your type of work and on your physical condition as well as what type and degree of pain you are experiencing. Lifestyle also may play a role in terms of your weight control & whether you smoke. The conditions in which you work and the mechanics of how you perform your work is also a factor. Therefore, you should seek an evaluation to get the correct information and advice.
