Does your job include lifting heavy loads? Has lifting loads at work started to take a toll on your back and neck?
Overuse and repetitive injuries in the neck and back due to lifting heavy loads can cause chronic pain and reduced productivity at work. If this sounds familiar, it is time to seek work related lifting injury treatment from an experienced chiropractor.
Threats to the Spine
Working in a hotel, hospital, warehouse, construction site or any other job that includes lifting loads and pushing heavy carts can cause severe strain on your musculoskeletal system. No wonder may workers suffer from chronic lower back, neck, shoulder and arm pain.
Since your brain fuels you with adrenaline while you are engaged in heavy physical tasks, it’s not uncommon for workers to miss the long-term damage to their spine until it’s too late.
Lifting Injury Treatment Options
A chiropractor is the best lifting injury treatment option. An experienced chiropractor will use diagnostic imaging like an MRI or an X-Ray to assess your neck or back condition. A herniated disc is often the cause of back pain and can be treated with a variety of chiropractic treatments including chiropractic realignment, manipulation, massage therapy, and more. The bones, joints or muscles that are misaligned can be realigned with spinal manipulation. Chiropractic care can also prevent future injury and promote overall wellness to help you keep your spine healthy in the long run.
