Chiropractic Solutions for Work-Related Injuries

Do you suffer from Work-Related Injuries?

Whether you have had an accident at work or are injured from repetitive stress, it is very common for the bone structure, particularly the spinal column, to be impacted and the source of the pain you are experiencing. When the vertebrae and other joints become misaligned, they will often put pressure on the nerves that pass through them and cause pain that radiates out from the source of the injury to other parts of the body. Furthermore, when the bones are not properly aligned, the flow of communication, blood, and oxygen can become impeded, leading to a decrease in your sense of well-being in the short-term, and damage to the related systems in the long term.

The most common forms of work injury are repetitive stress and overuse. Small tasks done with poor posture can create big problems over time. Twisting and turning while moving boxes or even continuous typing can cause acute and chronic pain. Even if you are using the correct posture, the simple act of doing the same movement day in and day out can create major problems over time.

Here are some of the common repetitive stress injuries:

The list goes on. Even if you are just at the beginning of an overuse injury, or you are concerned that you may start to develop one because of the nature of your work, it is important to start preventative and early treatment to ensure the issue does not progress to something more problematic.

People experiencing work injuries are often referred to chiropractors because of the high success rate of treating these types of injuries. Chiropractic care offers a gentle, non-invasive first step when seeking treatment. A chiropractor will perform a thorough evaluation in order to assess your condition and find the exact source. Once the cause of the pain has been determined, the chiropractor will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan.

The sooner you receive proper care after a work injury, the easier it is to avoid further pain and complications. Call our team at Chiropractic Nutrition Center today to get started on the track to recovery.
