Work Injuries

HURT AT WORK?menu-workinjuries-1-inner

Human Beings are designed to move and do hard work, but back injuries lead to more lost days of work than any other kind of injury or illness.

However, back injuries are too often ignored or dismissed.  Sometimes even a minor movement can trigger a back injury, and sometimes it is only a small range of motion that actually is impaired and painful. Yet, the pain in that range can be excruciating and debilitating. Other, more serious back injuries can develop slowly and without pain for months, only to suddenly become unbearable. The best advice when an injury is experienced is to acknowledge the event, stop work to avoid possible further damage and encourage immediate evaluation by a qualified professional.

Just a few of the top reported work related injuries as reported by leading insurance companies are:

  • Overexertion Injuries – This includes injuries related to pulling, lifting, pushing, holding, carrying, and throwing activities at work. Overexertion not only consistently been the number one workplace injury according but is also the most expensive.
  • Slipping/Tripping – The number 2 cause of workplace injuries, this pertains to falls on wet and slippery floors or trips over something lying on the floor.
  • Reaction Injuries – These are injuries caused by slipping and tripping without falling.  These incidents can cause muscle injuries, body trauma, and a variety of other medical issues.
  •  Repetitive Motion Injuries – This type of workplace injury is one of those less obvious but definitely harmful ones in the long run. Repetitive motions such as typing and using the computer 24/7 can strain muscles and tendons causing back pain, vision problems, and carpal tunnel syndrome.

THE GOOD NEWS

Studies show that chiropractic care for work-related musculoskeletal

(Bone/joint/muscle) conditions not only allows patients to return to work faster than standard medical treatment, but also provides substantial savings in overall healthcare costs while reducing the risk of recurrence of injury. Chiropractors have the expertise to effectively treat musculoskeletal conditions caused by many work-related mechanisms of injury.
