Have You Been Injured At Work?

the best chiropractic care for work injuries

Many people are surprised to find out that the majority of work injuries can be helped by a Loveland Chiropractor. Work injuries are not from serious accidents, but from overuse and repetitive stress injuries.  However, there are as many ways to injure yourself at work as there are different occupations, and none of them are very fun. The most important thing when dealing with a work-related injury is that you don't leave it until it requires more serious intervention or leads to an untreatable problem. This article talks about some of the risk factors involved with common work injuries and how chiropractic care can help you to heal from them.


Repetitive Stress and Overuse Injuries

As mentioned above, the most common forms of work injury are from repetitive stress and overuse. Small tasks done with poor posture can create big problems over time. Twisting and turning while moving boxes or even continuous typing can cause both acute and chronic pain to arise. Even if you are using correct posture, the simple act of doing the same movement day in and day out can create major problems over time. Here are some of the common repetitive stress injuries:

  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Back Ache
  • Arthritis
  • Slipped or Herniated discs

The list goes on. Even if you are just at the beginning of an overuse injury, or you are concerned that you may start to develop one because of the nature of your work, it is important to start preventative and early treatment to ensure the issue does not progress to something more problematic.


Work Injury in Loveland

Whether you have had an accident at work, or are injured from repetitive stress, it is very common for the bone structure and particularly the spinal column to be impacted, and to be the source of the pain you are experiencing. When the vertebrae and other joints become misaligned they will often put pressure on the nerves that pass through them and cause pain that radiates out from the source of the injury to other parts of the body. Furthermore, when the bones are not properly aligned, the flow of communication, blood, and oxygen can become impeded, leading to a decrease in your sense of well-being in the short-term, and damage to the related systems in the long-term.


Chiropractic Care for Work Injuries

People experiencing work injuries are often referred to chiropractors because of the high success rate with treating these types of injuries. Chiropractic care offers a gentle, non-invasive first step when seeking treatment. A chiropractor will perform a thorough evaluation in order to assess your condition and find the exact source. Once the cause of the pain has been determined, the chiropractor will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan.

The sooner you receive proper care after a work injury, the easier it is to avoid further pain and complications. Call our team at Gateway Family Chiropractic today to get started on the track to recovery.
