Work Injury Treatment
Work injuries are problems arising because of damage to the body or internal organs due to occupation-related trauma. The employer usually compensates for the damage and injuries endured.
Chiropractic care in Tacoma for workplace injury helps deal with these issues in a cost-effective, all-natural way. The quick recovery with the aid of a work injury chiropractor decreases work leave duration and reduces loss.
HOW CAN CHIROPRACTIC TREAT A WORK INJURY?
Whatever the job of the individual is, it exposes the spine to some pressures. Poor posture adds further stress on the spinal musculature and surrounding tissues. These factors contribute to back and neck injury resulting in pain, stiffness, and mobility issues.
We restore the spine’s maligned structures to their position by manipulating the spine and mobilizing joints. The gentle traction, stretching, and exercising resolve these symptoms to make the patient feel better.
We may also suggest lifestyle modifications, and dietary supplements to reduce the risk of further injuries in the future.
LOWER BACK PAIN DUE TO WORK INJURY
Lower back pain is one of the most frequent complaints arising due to work injuries. The lower back area of the spine, known as the lumbar spine, is the weight-bearing area. It is, therefore, more prone to injury.
The most common causes are strain and sprain that accumulate over time and result in either spinal subluxation, sciatic nerve leg pain, or a herniation. The resultant irritation and subsequent damage to the nerve cause severe pain in the lower back that affects mobility and life quality. Back pain chiropractic care can help deal with this issue.
NECK PAIN DUE TO WORK INJURY
Malpositioning of the neck, carrying heavy loads, and whiplash injury can cause a muscle spasm, stiffness, headache, shoulder pain, and other neuromuscular issues, resulting in neck pain.
The close association of the head and shoulders with the neck muscles affect these too. Work-related stress is another crucial reason behind tight neck muscles and headaches.
A severe accidental blow to the head due to occupational trauma can cause vertebral fractures, cervical dislocation, and more severe complications, resulting in pain. Pressure point massage and spinal mobilization help alleviate these conditions.
OTHER SYMPTOMS OF WORK INJURY
Besides backache and neck pain, a work injury can cause damage to other parts of the body. Some examples are:
- The repetitive motion of the hands, such as playing the piano, chopping with a knife, or typing on a computer, can cause carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis.
- The fall of a heavy object leads to penetrating injuries and more severe damage
- Fall from height causes concussion injury, severe brain trauma, and fractures
