Common Workplace Injuries in Westwood
When people think of a work injury they often think of one-time incidents that result in an injury, such as falling or having an accident. Although these types of injuries can create pain and suffering, these is not the only type of work place injury we see. You can also suffer a work place injury by simply doing the same task over and over again. Regardless of the type of injury you have, some of the symptoms can be very similar. Work place injuries often result in the following types of discomfort:
- Back pain
- Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
- Neck pain
- Nerve pain
The good news is that chiropractic care can help with the symptoms of this discomfort.
How Can a Chiropractor Help?
Work place injuries are especially important to treat because you want to get back to work soon. Chiropractic care can make sure that you are up and running as quickly as possible. Your chiropractor will evaluate your specific symptoms so that he can work to uncover the root of the problems. This can be done through discussion of your lifestyle and behaviors as well as through x-rays.
Your chiropractor will ask specific questions about your work activities to determine which activities are causing your issues, or how to avoid another accident in the future. This information will then be used to create a customized treatment plan just for you.
Once you have a treatment plan, your provider can begin to treat your pain and discomfort through spinal manipulation, heat ice therapy, massage therapy, and other options.
Getting Back to Work
Once you are on the mend, you should be able to head back to work. However, it will be important to avoid tasks or behaviors which can make your injuries worse. Your chiropractor will discuss with you ways to prevent future injuries. You can also discuss lifestyle changes that will foster whole body wellness as you heal.
Chiropractic care looks at the body as a whole. You may think that you are just dealing with one work place injury. Through chiropractic care, you can learn how to take care of your body as a whole in order to prevent future injuries.
