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 Denver NC 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.


Work injuries in Denver, NC

Neck, low back, and extremity pain, sprains, and strains account for nearly 33% of all reported work injuries according to OSHA. The most common cause of work-related injuries is overexertion and repetitive motion, leading to acute pain, muscle spasm, and soft tissue injuries. This accounts for 35% of all workers' compensation cases. Chiropractic treatment, massage, and acupuncture has been found to be effective in treating these types of injuries. If you have been injured at work, starting treatment early is critical in recovery time and symptom management.

Per the NC Department of Labor and Industry, all employers are required to either purchase workers' compensation insurance or have self-insurance to provide benefits to employees in a work-related injury. If you have been injured while at work, the first step is to file a report with your employer. Then, schedule an appointment with a healthcare provider for evaluation of your injuries and to discuss what treatment options are the best for you.


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.
