A workplace accident can happen at any time, and there are several common injuries we see. These include:
If you perform the same motion over and over again, you could increase your chances of suffering a workplace injury. For example, if you type on the computer a lot, you could develop carpal tunnel syndrome. This can lead to shooting pains that travel down your arm and into your fingers, making it difficult for you to do your job.
You can also be struck by a falling object. This could happen just about anywhere. For example, you may be trying to get something down from the top shelf in your office. Then, you might get hit on the head by an object. Or, you may perform manual labor at a construction site. Then, an object falls from the building and strikes you. This can lead to a variety of injuries.
Slip and fall injuries can also take place in just about any location. For example, you may miss a stair, causing you to fall to the bottom. Or, someone may have spilled something in the kitchen, causing you to slip and fall. If you slip and fall at work, you could suffer back pain, shoulder pain, or head injury.
Overexertion can also lead to serious injuries in the workplace. If your job involves a lot of lifting, it is important to lift with your legs, not your back. Otherwise, you could develop paraspinal muscle tenderness or a herniated disc. Overexertion can lead to other injuries as well. For example, you may suffer a rotator cuff injury if you lift a lot of objects over your head.
If you have suffered an injury in the workplace, it is important for you to work with a professional who will be with you from start to finish. A chiropractor can help you make a full recovery.
Chiropractic care can play a critical role in your recovery from workplace injuries. Chiropractic care is often administered in conjunction with physical therapy to not only help you get better but stay better. Some of the most common tools that a chiropractor might use include:
