Workplace injury chiropractic care involves two separate phases. First and foremost, it is important to reduce or eliminate your pain by addressing the cause of the injury. After that, we can focus on strategies and habits that help prevent future injuries.
Workplace injuries and accidents are caused by a number of different factors, from a one-time event to the repetitive performance of a specific physical movement. Although there are countless different types of workplace injuries, the most common usually occur due to improper lifting techniques and repetitive strain injuries. These types of injuries almost always include a certain amount of joint and soft tissue damage, which responds well to chiropractic care.
Specific workplace injuries that really improve with chiropractic care include:
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Headaches caused by poor posture or muscle tension
Back and neck injuries
Extremity numbness and tingling
Rotator cuff tears
