Many of us work in the office, slouching in front of a computer screen, typing the hours away. The other majority of us do the heavy lifting,work injury construction or some other form of fieldwork. Whatever the nature of your work may be, work injury is serious and seeking treatment from your Chula Vista, CA, chiropractor, Dr. Steven Wachs, is a must.

Common Injuries

It's estimated that we work an average of 90,000 hours in a lifetime, which leaves plenty of room for issues such as these to arise:

  • Back injuries: If you find yourself hunched over a computer for extended periods of time, you may experience stiffness, soreness and back pain, which may become a chronic pain problem. Don't take back injuries lightly, however, they are one of the most common work-associated injuries.
  • Herniated discs and compressed nerves: This issue can cause back pain, neck pain, and numbness.
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: This is another injury computer-users may suffer from. It's condition that is caused by the median nerve, a nerve that extends from the forearm to the palm of your hand, being compressed and can lead to swelling, pain, numbness, tingling, and difficulty holding objects.

Your Chula Vista Treatments

There are a few lifestyle tips that can dramatically improve the condition of your already existing work injury, improve the chances of eliminating the injury you may already have or prevent any injury from occurring at all.

  • Certain massage techniques when combined with well-designed lifestyle adjustments, such as proper back support on office chairs and ergonomic keyboards to eliminate strain.
  • Spinal manipulation can also help improve your chronic conditions, as well as your capability to move and your range-of-motion.
  • Spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and massage therapy can help alleviate your pain.

Dr. Wachs creates a custom treatment plan that will cater to your health needs.
