What you do professionally can have a huge impact on your body, whether or not your job is physically demanding. There are many different types of injuries that you can sustain while on the job. Here are some of the injuries you can face at work, and how chiropractic care might be able to help.
Common Injuries in the Workplace
If you happen to suffer from an injury at work that keeps you from completing your job, you can feel frustrated (and pain!). If you are unable to complete your work, your job may also be in jeopardy. Some injuries are a result of accidents, whereas others are from completing repetitive tasks on a daily basis. Many workplace injuries can be treated and even avoided with chiropractic care such as:
Carpal tunnel syndrome
How are Workplace Injuries Diagnosed?
When you come in for your chiropractic appointment with a specific complaint (like back pain), we will work with you to determine the true cause of the pain you are experiencing. We are able to determine this by asking questions about your job, your lifestyle, and other contributing factors. We may also ask you for a medical and family history. If necessary, we may have to do additional testing such as MRIs or X-rays. Once we’ve gathered as much information as possible, we will use our expertise and education to determine the cause of your issues and how to best go forward with treatment.
Can Chiropractic Help?
Once we have diagnosed your injury, the treatment plan we go forward with will utilize natural and drug-free methods. Chiropractors are known for spinal manipulations, but we are also experts in the mechanics of the body, so we can use nutritional counseling, exercise therapy, and heat/ice therapy to help you recover completely from your injury. We will work with you to determine the best course of action for your unique needs. You can be sure that each and every one of our treatment plans have the same end goal: to restore full function to your body.
