Work injuries are very common across the gamut of professions. The majority of work injuries are not caused by serious accidents, but rather, by overuse and repetitive stress to the body. Some of the most common work injuries include:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Frozen Shoulder
- Slipped/herniated discs
When the vertebrae become misaligned, it causes interferences and pressure to build on the nerves, which then causes pain to resonate throughout the body. When your spine is out of alignment, your nervous system is not functioning properly, which can cause overuse and repetitive stress injuries. Chiropractic adjustments can help realign the spine, allowing for proper communication, oxygen and blood flow throughout the body.
People who have experienced work injuries are often times referred to chiropractors due to their success rate when dealing with these injuries. Gentle and non-invasive chiropractic adjustments should be your first step when dealing with a work injury. Oftentimes patients visit their medical doctor for a diagnosis, who them refers on to physical therapy. Physical therapy can sometimes help, however, physical therapists are not trained to diagnose and treat misaligned joints and vertabrae. This can leave patients struggling with their recovery.
