Suffering from work injuries can be overwhelming and take a toll on your emotionally, physically and financially. The National Institute of Handicap Research (NIHR) estimated that since 1989, approximately 560,000 workers each year experience an injury or illness that hinders them for more than 5 months--and half of those workers never go back to work. Back pain is the most common form of work injury that causes people to miss work and is the most expensive compared to other conditions. In fact, approximately 90 percent of work injuries reported stem from neck and back complications and pain. Every year, around $100 billion dollars is spent because of low back pain related injuries in the workplace.

Common injuries at work include knee, hip, joint injuries as well as multiple back and neck sprains/strains. If you are injured at work, it is likely that your work environment is the culprit. Many work place environments call for the employer to stand in a certain position for long periods of time or repeat the same motion over and over again, and people often forget to take multiple breaks which increase your chances of developing injuries. People who work in front of the computer or at a desk may not know about proper ergonomics. Placing your chair, keyboard, and monitor at the right levels for your body is crucial in the prevention of injuries.

Injuries that are work related may cause severe and crippling symptoms which can include:

  • Pain
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Reduction in work productivity
  • Calling in sick more often
  • Temporary or permanent disability
  • Failure to complete or perform tasks at work
  • Increase in workers compensation costs

Treating Work-Related Injuries with Chiropractic Care

If you experience injuries that are painful and hinder your ability to work, you may be eligible for care under your employer's worker's compensations policy. Employees are able to decide their own health care provider for work-related injuries which includes chiropractic treatments. Research has shown chiropractic care to be a safe and natural approach to treating work-related injuries. Chiropractic care is one of the best treatment options to help recover and stay healthy after work-related injuries. Spinal adjustments work to realign your joints and ligaments in your spine, and physical therapy strengthens your muscles and helps get back your range of motion.
