What Are Some of the More Common Work Injuries?

Some of the more common work injuries include sciatica, back injuries, neck injuries (including whiplash), slip and fall injuries, and ergonomic-related injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome. A slip and fall event can dislocate joints; include the joints that articulate the vertebrae. If your muscles overextend themselves on the way down, you may suffer a painful strain. Heavy lifting injuries are another common problem. Lifting a heavy object incorrectly can tear muscles and tendons or sprain ligaments, causing lower back pain. It can also cause lumbar discs to herniate.

What's the Relationship Between Work Injuries and Workplace Ergonomics?

Awkward ergonomics may force you to bend or twist your body unnaturally. This leads to joint alignment problems and soft tissue injuries. Ergonomic issues may also force you to adopt painfully awkward postures. "Text neck," for instance, is a posture-related form of neck strain that occurs when you let your head droop forward as you check your smartphone or use your computer monitor.

How Does Your Chiropractor Treat a Work Injury?

Our chiropractor can administer chiropractic adjustments to relieve joint misalignment problems. This eases joint pain and allows for a healthier posture at work. We may also prescribe a combination of spinal decompression for herniated disc symptoms, massage therapy, and acupuncture to accelerate healing and ease pain, and physical therapy to repair tissue damage. These and other healing modalities can be combined into a holistic work injury recovery plan so you can get back to work faster and more easily.
