Have You Been Injured At Work?
You will be surprised to know that most of the work injuries don’t occur from serious accidents but from overuse and repetitive stress injuries. However, you can injure yourself in various ways and believe me, none of them is fun!
The most crucial aspect of a work injury is that you don’t pay attention to it until it becomes untreatable or requires serious intervention. This article discusses some of the risks involved with common work injuries and how chiropractic care can help you to deal with them.
Repetitive Stress and Overuse Injuries
As discussed above, most of the work injuries occur from repetitive stress and overuse. Even the smallest of the tasks performed with poor posture can create major problems later. Twisting and turning or even continuous typing can lead to acute and chronic pain. Even if your posture is correct, doing the same movement, again and again, can cause major problems over a period.
Let us have a look at the most common repetitive stress injuries:
- Frozen Shoulder
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Back Ache
- Slipped or Herniated discs
If you feel that it’s a beginning of an overuse injury, or think that you may develop it due to the nature of your work, you must start preventative treatment before it results into some serious issue.
Whether you have met with an accident at work, or are going through repetitive stress, it is very common for the bone structure, specifically the spinal column, to get affected leading to pain and discomfort. What happens is that the misaligned vertebrae and other joints often put pressure on the nerves passing through them and cause pain that radiates out to other parts of the body too. Furthermore, the misalignment of the bones hampers the flow of blood and oxygen, resulting in a decrease in your well-being in the short-term and serious damage to the associated systems in the long run.
Chiropractic Care for Work Injuries
People experiencing work injuries are often referred to chiropractors because of the high success rate in treating these types of injuries. Chiropractic care provides a gentle, non-invasive treatment for a work injury. A chiropractor thoroughly examines the condition in order to detect the exact source. After determining the exact source of the problem, a customized treatment plan developed.
The earlier you get your work injury treated, the easier it is to get rid of the pain and discomfort without complicating it further.
