Chiropractors treat patients who have suffered from work related injuries. While injuries can occur in hazardous places such as construction sites, injuries can even occur in seemingly safe workplaces.
If you’ve been injured on the job, delay in seeking help is not a good idea. A chiropractor can evaluate your injuries, make a diagnosis and handle your workers’ compensation claim.
Seeking Chiropractic Care for Work Related Injuries
A chiropractor conducts a thorough evaluation of your injuries to diagnose their nature and possible cause. To determine the cause of your injuries, the chiropractor will ask about your medical history, dietary and lifestyle habits, occupational history (for instance, does your job involve prolonged sitting or standing, or repetitive motions or heavy lifting?) This will be followed by a physical exam and diagnosis.
Your chiropractic care plan is customized to your needs. You may undergo chiropractic adjustments sessions to realign the bones of your back to relieve your pain. Chiropractors also work towards preventing a recurrence of workplace injuries, such as improving ergonomics of your work environment to reduce the future risk of back or neck pain.
If you get injured at work, chiropractic care is covered by workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation can cover your medical bills forinjury diagnosis and treatment. If your injury prevents you from returning to your job for some time, a portion of your wages is also compensated.
