Have You Been Injured At Work?
There are many ways to be injured on the job, and many people injured at work aren’t affected by serious accidents. The majority of work injury cases involve repetitive strain injuries, and similar conditions caused by overuse. To avoid the need for work injury treatment, it pays to be aware of how your body feels when you’re at work, and after you’ve finished for the day. Ignoring a problem will only make it more serious and difficult to treat. Addressing it with appropriate chiropractic treatment in Tacoma or Puyallup early on can result in avoidance of unnecessary pain and discomfort.
Types of Repetitive Stress Work Injuries
Even small tasks can create big problems over time. When combined with poor posture, continuous typing or lifting boxes during the workday can result in acute or chronic pain issues. Even if you’re exercising correct posture, repetitive work motion can still result in:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Neck ache
- Back ache
- Frozen shoulder
- Slipped or herniated disc
Work Injury Chiropractic Treatment
If you’ve been injured at work or in an auto accident, Active Chiropractic will conduct a detailed assessment of your condition, including x-rays and a physical examination for signs of misalignment.
When your spine isn’t properly aligned, pressure can be placed on the nerves passing through the vertebrae. This can lead to pain radiating from the nerves to other parts of your body. Blood and oxygen flow can also become impeded, making you feel unwell in the short term, and leading to longer term damage if the problem isn’t corrected.
We can formulate a personalized treatment plan to fit your needs, which may include therapeutic massage and chiropractic adjustments to treat pain and put you on the road to healing. Contact us today to set up your personalized assessment and initial adjustment.
