At Superior Health and Wellness, we commonly work with patients who have suffered a workplace injury. When an injury occurs on the job, your employer may be responsible for providing workers’ compensation to cover your medical losses. A key component of workers’ compensation is chiropractic care. If you have been hurt at work, whether it is an acute injury or chronic pain, we highly recommend coming in to see your chiropractor for care.
Common Types of Workplace Accidents and Injuries
We see a wide range of workplace injuries occurring as a result of negligence. In some situations, injuries occur as a result of slips and falls. However, other pain comes from repetitive motion, such as repeated use or overuse of limbs or joints.
- Back injuries leading to low back pain
- Neck and shoulder pain
- Head injuries (often causing neck pain)
- Hip and joint pain
- Leg Pain
- Carpal tunnel or wrist pain
Process Of Treatment
With specific, gentle force to specific areas of the spinal column, we may be able to reduce the pain you feel in your neck, back, legs, or other joints. Chiropractic adjustments improve the alignment of your spinal column, reducing your pain.
We often recommend massage therapy for instances in which muscle pain occurs. This therapeutic procedure works to reduce muscle pain by speeding natural healing in the area. We’re able to reduce inflammation and trigger points as well.
In some situations, we may recommend lifestyle changes. For example, we can help you to re-learn the proper methods for moving your body to avoid further pain. If you spend a great deal of time on your feet, we’ll recommend treatments to address this pressure on your spine.
