Chiropractic for Workplace Injury
Your occupation can have a huge impact on your body, and your job doesn’t have to be physically taxing for that to hold true. There are many different types of injuries that can take place on the job, and chiropractic can help treat them.
The Most Common Injuries in the Workplace
If you experienced an injury at work that is preventing you from completing necessary tasks, you can be left feeling frustrated on top of being in pain. Your job might also be put in jeopardy, adding even more stress. Some injuries are a result of accidents, while others are due to completing the same tasks repetitively, day in and day out. Many injuries that happen in the workplace and be either avoided altogether or treated with the help of chiropractic are including:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
How Are Workplace Injuries Diagnosed?
When you come to us with a specific complaint (take back pain for example), our goal is to not just help with symptoms, but to uncover the root of the issues causing you pain. This process starts with a consultation where we will discuss your job, lifestyle, and other contributing factors. We may do a personal or family medical history. Once we’ve got as much information as possible, we will use our education and experience to determine the cause of your problem and develop a treatment plan to get your health back on track. Our goal is to provide effective treatment that restores full function to your body.
Many workplace injuries can be prevented if you have the proper tools in place. If you have not yet experienced a workplace injury and would like to prevent that as best as possible, we can suggest core strengthening exercises, back and neck stretches to relieve tightness from sitting all day, and ergonomic tools for your desk and chair.
