The National Safety Council reports that a workplace injury occurs every 7 seconds.
The most common types of workplace injuries that keep workers away from work are sprains, strains and tears, soreness or pain and cuts or lacerations while overexertion, contact with objects and equipment and slips, trips and falls usually cause these injuries or conditions.
Chiropractors can help in the treatment of common work injuries like lower back pain or sprained muscles. Chiropractic care focuses on relieving joint and muscle pain with spinal adjustments and manipulation.
Chiropractors are trained professionals who can diagnose the underlying cause of your pain and discomfort, usually issues that affect bones and muscles. Treatment typically involves manual manipulation of the spine.
Chiropractic care can be incredibly effective in treating the most common forms of workplace injury, such as sprains and strains, and overuse injuries due to repetitive motion.
Your injury chiropractor will ask about your medical history, your symptoms, what makes your pain better or worse, and what treatments you have tried so far. For your treatment plan, your chiropractor will use a number of specific techniques to manually “adjust” your spine or joints. You may have to go through a few sessions or visits for the complete treatment.
