Work Injury

No matter what industry you work in, there is always potential for an on-the-job injury. Back and neck injuries can hinder your ability to perform at work and in your daily activities. Our goal is to help you feel better by using proven techniques that will help decrease your pain.

Work injuries can happen at any time and can often leave you with a lengthy recovery, depending on the severity of the injury. Not only can these injuries cause you pain, they can affect your ability to continue working and functioning in your daily activities.

Get familiar with common workplace injuries

Accidents lurk around the corner in every workplace—whether you’re sitting at a desk, maneuvering heavy equipment or running the line. Here’s a look at some of the most common dangers for laborers in all industry—injuries chiropractic care can help address and alleviate:

  • Slips and falls
  • Falling objects
  • Repetitive motion
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Overexertion and strain

Whether it’s whiplash from an accident in the company car or a back spasm caused by lifting something too heavy or too often, workplace injuries are, unfortunately, common. But that doesn’t mean you need to live with the effects of one.

We treat all types of work injuries

Workplace injuries vary in type and intensity. Typing at a computer for eight hours each day can cause carpal tunnel syndrome to sneak up on you. Conversely, there’s no mistaking the pain of falling off a ladder. Whether acute or chronic, it’s important to realize when you’re suffering from a workplace injury. Quickness is the key to recovery, and the sooner you seek help for work injuries, the more opportunities a chiropractor has to correct or mitigate them.
