Work Injury Treatment at
The Way Health & Spine

It might surprise many to learn that a Chiropractor can play a pivotal role in addressing the majority of work-related injuries. Work injuries often stem from overuse and repetitive stress, rather than dramatic accidents. The array of potential workplace injuries is as diverse as the array of occupations, none of which are particularly enjoyable experiences. What’s paramount when dealing with a work-related injury is addressing it promptly to prevent escalation requiring more severe interventions or resulting in untreatable issues. This information delves into the risk factors associated with common work injuries and help shed light on how chiropractic care can facilitate healing from such injuries.

Repeated Strain and Overuse Injuries

As noted earlier, the primary forms of work injuries arise from repeated strain and overuse. Mundane tasks performed with poor posture can lead to significant issues over time. Actions like twisting while lifting boxes or constant typing can give rise to both acute and chronic pain. Even if correct posture is maintained, the repetitive nature of specific movements over extended periods can culminate in substantial problems. Here are a few prevalent examples of repetitive stress injuries:

  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Back Pain
  • Arthritis
  • Slipped or Herniated Discs

The list goes on. Even if the onset of an overuse injury is in its early stages or you’re concerned about its potential due to your job’s nature, it’s imperative to proactively seek early treatment to prevent its progression into a more concerning issue.

Regardless of whether your workplace injury resulted from an accident or stems from repetitive stress, it’s quite common for the bone structure, particularly the spinal column, to be impacted and to serve as the source of your discomfort. Misaligned vertebrae and joints often exert pressure on nerves passing through them, causing pain that radiates from the injury’s origin to other parts of your body. Furthermore, misalignments impede the smooth flow of communication, blood, and oxygen, leading to short-term discomfort and long-term damage to interconnected systems.
