Can a Chiropractor Treat Work Injuries?
On the job injuries are fairly common. If you are injured on the job, your primary goal will be to heal quickly so that you can return to work. Fortunately, the professionals at Spine and Injury Associates can create a treatment plan to help relieve your pain quickly.
On the Job Injuries
Many people believe that only dangerous jobs, such as jobs that require physical labor, jobs where you work at great heights, or jobs where you work with dangerous people are the only professions where you can be injured on the job. This is not the case. Even people who sit at a desk all day are susceptible to workplace injures.
Common Workplace Injuries
Several different injuries can occur at work. A few of them include:
- Trips, slips, and falls
- Muscle strains
- Repetitive strain injuries
- Cuts and lacerations
- Being hit by a falling object
- Shoulder, neck, or back pain
- Broken bones
How Can a Chiropractor Treat Workplace Injuries?
If you are injured on the job, there are a few ways that a chiropractor can help. Some of our treatment options include:
- Spinal manipulation: Any time the spine is out of alignment, it can cause pain and other symptoms throughout the body. When the spine is realigned, it can reduce your symptoms.
- Decompression: If something is compressing the spine, it can cause a variety of medical issues. Spinal decompression can be very helpful for pain relief and promoting the recovery process.
- Physical therapy: Physical therapy can improve your range of motion and strengthen muscles.
- Ergonomic therapy: If your injuries are due to poor work ergonomics, this type of therapy can help.
- Massage: Massage is great to soothe painful muscles and to loosen them up.
- Heat and cold therapy: Heat and cold therapy can help with muscular and soft tissue injuries.
