Regardless of your line of work, there’s always a risk of getting injured on the job. Work-related injuries should be reported to your supervisor swiftly to avoid delays in your treatment. At Pacific Empire Chiropractic, we offer pain relief treatment for musculoskeletal work injuries. These FAQs provided by our team offer more information on work injuries and how to treat them.
What can cause a work injury?
Work injuries can be caused by carelessness, an unsafe work environment, low safety standards, or overworking your body. Work injuries can occur just as much in an office as on a construction site. Many workplace injuries are caused by slips and falls, stress, overexertion, heavy lifting, and repetitive motions that strain your muscles and joints.
What type of musculoskeletal injuries can you sustain on the job?
Muscle strains, herniated discs, ligament tears, joint sprains, spinal misalignments, dislocated shoulder, and frozen shoulder are common work-related injuries. Our Chino chiropractor can treat these and other soft tissue injuries you sustain on the job.
Why should I see a chiropractor for a work injury?
Chiropractors specialize in treating soft tissue injuries without the use of drugs or surgery. At Pacific Empire Chiropractic, we use holistic, non-invasive therapies and techniques to treat work injury pain and help damaged muscles, joints, ligaments, and tissues heal.
How should I handle a work injury?
First, report your accident and injury to your immediate supervisor. Then seek help from our chiropractor for diagnosis of your condition. The sooner you get diagnosed with a musculoskeletal injury, the sooner you can start pain relief treatment. Your worker’s comp insurance will help cover the cost of chiropractic treatments.
How does chiropractic care treat work injuries?
Our Chino chiropractor will start by reviewing your medical history to get an idea of your current state of health. We’ll then discuss the details of your accident and symptoms and perform a comprehensive physical exam to diagnose your condition. We may order x-rays or an MRI scan to make an accurate diagnosis. We’ll also check your spinal alignment and test your range of motion and mobility. This information is used to outline a treatment plan.
Chiropractic care aims to reduce pain, restore body function, and promote the body’s natural healing process. We’ll use techniques and therapies like chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue massage, cold laser therapy, and rehab exercises to accomplish these objectives. All our treatment plans are customized to suit your individual health care needs.
