Whether you work in a field that requires heavy lifting and manual labor or you spend your days sitting at a desk, work-related injuries can happen to anyone and it can significantly affect both your working and personal life. Even something as simple as poor posture can lead to lower back and neck pain, as well as other conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome. Even one minor fall can cause a herniated disc or other spinal problems. If you are dealing with a work-related injury, Wachs Chiropractic Health Center is here to help you.

Chula Vista Work InjuriesBack injuries continue to be one of the most common work-related injuries. Those who find themselves hunched over their computer for hours on end many experience muscle stiffness, soreness and back pain. The first step to treating your chronic back pain effectively is to first pinpoint the cause. Certain massage techniques coupled with ergonomic lifestyle adjustments such as recommended back support and better office chairs can help to eliminate strain.

Herniated discs and compressed nerves are also common in the workforce and can cause back and neck pain, as well as numbness. Spinal manipulation and adjustments can help to alleviate these chronic conditions and improve both mobility and range-of-motion. We can create a unique treatment plan that caters to your specific health needs and lifestyle.

Those who work on computers for a living may also experience carpal tunnel syndrome, a painful condition that is caused by compression of the median nerve, which runs from the forearm to the palm of your hand. This disorder can cause swelling, pain, numbness, tingling and difficulty holding objects. Physical therapy, massage therapy and spinal adjustments and manipulation can help to alleviate your pain without needing medication.

Our team of experts is here to help patients who are dealing with work injuries. To find out more about how chiropractic care can help you contact (619) 427-4747.
