Here are some brief facts about Workplace injuries and how chiropractic care can help you with your pain.
Common Work Injury
Nearly 3 million workers are injured on the job each year, according to the Department of Labor. The most common injuries are falls, trips, and slips in the workplace. Here are some of the other common workplace injuries:
- Muscle strains from lifting
- Being struck by a falling item
- Repetitive motion injuries
Your posture and workplace environment are also common causes of injuries. If your desk and computer aren’t at the proper height, or you sit for long periods of time, you can also be at risk.
- “Text Neck” from using mobile devices
- Muscle strain from excessive computer use
- Sitting for too long or working in an awkward posture
Those that drive as part of their job are susceptible to accidents and injuries, including whiplash from jarring stops which whip the head back and forth rapidly.
How Chiropractor Care Can Minimize Pain
Starting with a comprehensive examination, the chiropractor will test reflexes and flexibility. Additional tests may be needed, including posture, physical or orthopedic tests as well as standard neurological tests and imaging in order to determine the best course of treatment.
For work injury accident injury, a chiropractor works with you to develop a personal treatment pain to help minimize pain and provide corrective measures. Treatments may include a combination of manual manipulation, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. This can help increase your range of motion and reduce pain. By having the proper alignment in your spine, pressure on your joints can be relieved. That can also improve nerve function and reduce any inflammation.
Subsequent treatments can train muscles to help keep alignment consistent and improve posture. In addition, a home wellness program may be developed to include at-home exercises and ice or heat treatments.
Chiropractors have been proven to help relieve shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, back, neck, and ankle and foot pain.
