PI / Workplace Injuries

Injuries in the workplace or getting into an accident that results in an injury impacts your lifestyle and mobility. Depending on the location of the injury and the type of wounds, the appropriate treatment solutions will vary; however, problems that occur at work often allow you to work with chiropractic professionals to address your concerns.

What are Personal and Workplace Injuries?

Personal injuries refer to wounds and injuries that occur from accidents. A workplace injury is a personal injury that occurs at your work. Essentially, they are injuries from auto accidents, slip and fall accidents or lifting heavy objects at work. Nearly 1/3 of all injuries at work cause back pain and stem from accidents or inappropriate lifting.

Since a large number of back, shoulder or neck injuries at work result from lifting, the injuries that occur usually relate to poor spinal alignment, a slipped disk or strained muscles. We focus on healing the cause of your pain through natural treatment strategies.

Common Injuries We Treat

At our clinic, we see and treat a variety of different injuries from different types of accidents. The most common personal injuries and workplace injuries that we help address include:

• Whiplash
• Strained or sprained muscles
• Pinched nerves
• General neck, back or shoulder pain

At our clinic, we evaluate your injuries by using screenings and tests to determine the underlying cause of your pain. In the case of auto accidents, you might need x-rays in addition to analyze spinal misalignments, but also to ensure that you do not have any injuries to the bones or broken bones that require medical treatments. We always evaluate your injuries before we make recommendations for treatment plans so that we provide appropriate tools for your specific needs.

Natural Treatments and Recovery

The key to addressing injuries from work or an accident is using appropriate tools. We focus on your specific needs before we make any suggestions for a treatment plan. We evaluate the underlying cause of your pain and then develop a strategy that helps your body heal without using harsh medications.

Tools we use to help with healing include:

• Chiropractic treatments
• Supervised exercise programs
• Lifestyle recommendations
• Suggestions regarding mobility and movement
• Posture recommendations and education

Our treatment strategy goes beyond basic pain management. We educate individuals about their injuries and the way that posture impacts the healing process. We also provide an education about appropriate exercises while you heal and movements to avoid until your back, neck or body recovers. By improving your posture and ensuring that you know how to lift objects without risking injuries to your back, neck or shoulders, we provide the tools you need to maintain the recovery process and improve your mobility.

Injuries occur at the most inconvenient times, but that does not mean you have limited options to handle the pain. To learn more about our pain management strategies or the chiropractic treatments we offer at our clinic, contact us to set up an appointment with a chiropractor today.
