Work-Related Injuries

Work-Related Injury Chiropractic services can help you miss the least amount of time at work. These injuries go far beyond the fall from a ladder or lifting heavy items the wrong way. Genesis Chiropractic treats the more common repetitive use injuries caused by typing and lifting such as carpal tunnel syndrome and neck and back pain.

When one thinks of work-related injuries, they think of slip and fall or throwing their back out from lifting something heavy. Back pain, neck pain, and repetitive motion conditions are actually far more common.

Some simple changes to the ergonomic set-up of your workspace and some simple behavior modifications can make a huge difference, and get you back to work faster and in a lot less pain.

Work-Related Injury Treatment Expectations

Through a combination of adjustments, massage, and counseling about the ergonomics of how you sit at your desk and work can make a huge difference for those who suffer from the repetitive motion conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome.

For the slip and fall and lifting injuries, spinal adjustments, massage, and stretches will get you back on your feet faster. Dr. Fries will also take the time to give you pointers on the better way to lift things. The adjustments will also help with your balance and your posture so that you can feel better.

Frequently Asked Questions for Work-Related Injuries

Poor posture can affect how you hold your body when you work. If you are in a job where you have to sit for several hours at a time, you can tend to slump forward which can be taxing on your neck and upper back. Ergonomic corrections to the way you work can make all the difference in whether you are uncomfortable or not.

The proper way to lift things that are heavy is with your back straight and your knees bent. By lifting from your knees, you can hold your back in its proper alignment and prevent injury.

First and foremost, don’t just sit at work in one position for hours on end. Get up and stretch at regular intervals. Walk around some. Get moving. There is a lot to be said for just taking those breaks.
