What are common workplace injuries?

With more and more people working from home these days, we are finding that people are having a harder time unplugging from their work. This means more hours at their desk and less movement. Our bodies weren’t meant to sit for hours each day and this could be contributing to the work injuries you’re dealing with. Some of the most common work injuries our Chula Vista, CA, chiropractor treats include,

  • Strains and sprains
  • Fractures and broken bones

  • Back injury
  • Back and neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Hernia
  • Arthritis

  • Nerves
  • Ligaments

  • Muscles
  • Joints

How can chiropractic care help me?

If you are dealing with work-related injuries it’s best to turn to our chiropractor if you are looking for a treatment that focuses on improving how the body functions as a whole while also stimulating the body’s natural healing processes to reduce pain and inflammation and to help your injury heal faster. Regular chiropractic care can be used to,

  • Reduce muscle spasms and cramping
  • Restore range of motion and flexibility
  • Reduce pain, swelling and inflammation
  • Retrain and rebuild the ligaments, muscles and tendons
  • Release compressed or trapped nerves
  • Break up knots and trigger points in the muscles
  • Prevent new injuries from occurring
  • Recommend better ergonomics to improve posture, especially when working
  • Demonstrate certain stretches and exercises that you can do on your own

When will I see results?

How quickly you experience relief will depend on the issues you are dealing with and how severe they are. Many patients experience some symptom relief after just a single session; however, to see optimal results, we highly recommend coming in for regular sessions. When you come in for your consultation we can discuss how many treatment sessions we recommend.

When it comes to work injuries, you want a chiropractor that knows exactly what you need to heal. Our Chula Vista, CA, award-winning chiropractor Dr. Wachs and his team would be happy to sit down with you to discuss your injuries and how we can help.

If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.
