Find out how chiropractic care can effectively treat work-related injuries.
Whether you work on a construction site or in an office there are injuries that can befall workers no matter what your job might be. Here are some of the most common work injuries and how your Chula Vista chiropractor Dr. Steven Wachs can help.
What are the most common work injuries?
It doesn’t matter what setting you call your workplace, injuries can happen to anyone. Here are some of the most typical work-related injuries we see:
Musculoskeletal Injuries: These problems can occur due to overexertion, heavy lifting, repetitive movements or even staying in one position too long.
Slipping and Falling: It doesn’t matter where you work, a fall can happen to anyone. Whether it’s a cluttered workspace or a slippery floor there are so many scenarios that could spell disaster.
Auto accidents: Most workers drive, whether it includes transporting goods, driving the company car or just using their personal car to get to and from work every day. Whiplash, spinal misalignments and broken bones are common car accident-related injuries.
How can chiropractic treatment help?
When it comes to musculoskeletal injuries chiropractic care can certainly help to adjust and correct spinal alignment to take pressure off of common sore spots like back, neck, hips or legs. Massage therapy can also reduce anxiety and help alleviate musculoskeletal pain and discomfort.
Slipping and falling can incur serious injury to the region of impact. Fortunately, your chiropractic specialist in Chula Vista can offer both rehabilitation exercises and physical therapy to boast healing and help patients reduce pain, increase mobility and get back to what matters in their lives.
Auto accidents can be scary, and they can certainly be scarier once you are faced with injuries or other problems. When you come into our Chula Vista chiropractic office we can offer physical therapy, spinal realignment, massage therapy and other options to restore movement, range-of-motion and mobility.
