Work Injuries Q & A
What causes work injuries?
Work injuries are often the result of a slip or fall accident, physical overexertion, or repeated stress to joints or muscles. You may also experience back strains or muscle spasms from heavy lifting or become injured by dangerous equipment or as a result of unsafe conditions.
Repetitive motions, such as reaching overhead, working on an assembly line, or using your elbow or wrist in the same manner, can lead to chronic conditions like:
- Leg pain
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
The skilled chiropractic team at Pro Rehab Chiropractic specializes in treating conditions of the musculoskeletal system and work-related injuries naturally, noninvasively, and without dependency on pain medications that may affect your ability to do your job.
Who is most at risk for a work injury?
Service professionals like police officers and firefighters suffer the highest number of work injuries resulting in days away from work, as well as transportation professionals, and those in the manufacturing industry. Construction workers and maintenance people also have a high risk of getting injured at work.
How does a chiropractor treat work injuries?
As with any injury or chronic condition, your doctor first determines the underlying cause of your pain or discomfort. Once they pinpoint the cause of your condition, the team makes gentle chiropractic adjustments to your spine, neck, shoulders, elbows, or any other affected joint. This helps your body begin to heal itself.
When your spine and joints are in proper alignment, you get relief from pain, so to offer the most precise adjustments, the doctors use the advanced technology of PulStar® treatments. The PulStar System electronically analyzes your spine, if that’s the area of your injury, and identifies subluxations, or areas of dislocation. With this information, your chiropractor can direct a gentle impulse to a highly specific section of your spine without any cracking, popping, or twisting.
Additionally, your individualized treatment plan focuses on reducing pain and rehabilitating your body so you can improve mobility and live without pain. Your rehabilitation program may also include physical therapy and ultrasound technology.
