Is a work injury keeping you from doing the things you want to do? If you’ve been hurt at work, chances are that you’re in a lot of pain. To make matters worse, it’s likely that your work-related injury is keeping you from doing your job.
Beyond pain and disability, losing work can affect your finances and create stress and emotional strain. You may feel like there are no good options; either tough out your job in pain or miss work. Needless to say, becoming injured at work can affect your quality of life, and not in a good way.
If you’re struggling with a work-related injury, there’s good news in the form of chiropractic care. Chiropractors are trained and committed to helping you become pain-free in a safe and natural way.
They do this by assessing your injury to understand the source of your symptoms and develop a plan for your care. Treatments usually involve a series of hands-on spinal manipulations, called adjustments.
In addition to spinal manipulations, your chiropractor may also use other healing tools, such as heat or ice therapy, muscle stimulation, stretching, exercises, massage therapy, and nutritional advice. They can also help assess work ergonomics, which is how your body moves through your work day. Their goal is to reduce your pain and help you get back to work as soon as possible.
And chiropractic care isn’t just about your back and neck. Your practitioner can treat carpal tunnel issues, knee pain, headaches, tendonitis, and many other types of injuries that may occur at work. Chiropractors understand that injuries can happen whether your work involves sitting at a desk or working with heavy equipment. Their treatments are effective whether you’ve been hurt as the result of repetitive motions, a fall, being hit by a falling object, or overexertion from heavy lifting.
In order to make sure your injury is assessed and treated properly, it’s important to get help as soon as possible after you’ve become injured. Going without treatment or hoping the pain will resolve on its own can leave you at risk of developing further pain and disability. Your chiropractor is able to assess the extent of your injury and provide a plan for your recovery. Their treatments focus on relieving the source of your pain, rather than just masking your symptoms. Chiropractic care involves drug-free treatments that support faster healing plus the pain relief that you’re looking for.
