Work Injury Chiropractor

Many people don’t realize that workplace injuries can happen at any time, even if you spend most of your workday sitting at a desk. These incidents might not be your fault, but they can cause significant pain and discomfort for an injured worker.

In the event of a work-related injury, it’s important to promptly seek medical assistance from a chiropractor through your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. Chiropractors specialize in treating injuries or illnesses resulting from accidents, repetitive motions, and chronic conditions exacerbated by your job.

There are so many types of workplace injuries that can occur at work. For example, there is the risk of trips, slips and falls, possible fire and explosions, repetitive stress while working, and vehicle or machinery-related accidents.

If you’re in pain as a result of a work-related injury, continue reading to learn more about how seeing a chiropractor can help.

How Can Chiropractic Treat Work Injury?

Your work injury specialist can help relieve any musculoskeletal-related pain and injuries arising from the accident using chiropractic adjustments. A work injury chiropractor may treat your injuries alone or work with your doctor. By relieving pinched nerves and realigning the spine, Dr. Oscar Noriega, who is regarded as one of the best chiropractor in Murfreesboro can help reduce inflammation and improve blood flow to quicken the healing process. It makes chiropractic care for a workplace injury a quick and affordable work injury treatment option.


Lower Back Pain Due To Work Injury

Work injuries due to falls, slips, and accidents most commonly lead to lower back pain because of an inflamed sciatic nerve. There is also the risk of suffering from spine subluxations and disc herniation. 

Working at the desk for long periods can lead to sciatica and consequent leg and back pain. You may take painkillers. However, they only provide temporary pain relief and don’t treat or cure the problem. A chiropractic visit is a better option for the quick treatment of the condition.

Neck Pain Due To Work Injury

Your work can give you various common workplace injuries and headaches if you have excessive stress or a huge physical and mental load to carry.

Even working longer hours at the computer can trigger neck pain and shoulder pain.

The bad news is that untreated shoulder pain can lead to future wrist, hand, and finger work injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome. We can provide pain relief and treat the condition through manual manipulations.

Other Symptoms Of Work Injury

Injuries are not always the reason for workplace injuries and absenteeism at work. Sometimes all it takes is the way you work to lead to a work injury.

For example, if you tend to strain and work for long hours at the computer, it can trigger neck and shoulder pain and possible carpal tunnel syndrome.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is not a condition to be neglected. Treat it before you start noticing weakness and numbness in your hand.

Chiropractic Care for Work-Related Injuries

Injuries to the back, neck, and spine in the workplace can find relief through chiropractic care. Whether resulting from a car accident or other traumatic events, these common injuries can be addressed with chiropractic treatment, promoting a faster recovery and a quicker return to regular daily activities.

Athletic Support

Sports medicine chiropractors are also adept at treating athletes facing repetitive stress injuries at work, such as carpal tunnel syndrome or tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis).

Addressing Physical Injuries

The primary cause of workplace accidents is often physical injury. Various possibilities, including strains, sprains, spine injuries, musculoskeletal disorders, fractures, dislocations, headaches, back pain, nerve damage, and muscle spasms, may occur.

Dealing with Repetitive Stress Injuries

In some instances, work-related injuries manifest as repetitive stress injuries (RSIs). These injuries stem from the continual use of a specific body part or muscle group, resulting in pain, swelling, and loss of function over time. RSIs can impact any part of the body, with common examples such as:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) affecting the wrists
  • Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) in the elbow
  • Tendinitis, including rotator cuff tendonitis, across the shoulder complex
  • Migraines

If you’re struggling with RSI, hindering your work capacity, consulting a chiropractor can be advantageous. Our Murfreesboro Chiropractors are well-equipped to address these types of injuries, aiding you in your journey to recovery and getting back to your normal routine.
