Work Injury FAQs Answered by our Chiropractor in Lake Worth

Injuries suffered at work can greatly impair quality of life as well as one’s ability to perform in the workplace. They can not only prevent you from working but can also sideline you from many of the activities you take for granted. Fortunately, chiropractic care at Lake Worth Chiropractic & Wellness can help with a great number of work injury types. Our Lake Worth chiropractor answers some frequently asked questions about chiropractic care for work injuries.

man suffering from a work injury

1. What is the most common work injury treated by chiropractors?

The most common work injury treated by Lake Worth chiropractors is a sprain or strain of the back due to improper lifting. Unfortunately, a great many people do not remember ideal form and technique when lifting heavy items. They forget to bend at the knees and instead lift from the lower back and/or at an awkward angle. Since the lifting of heavy items can potentially take place in any industry or workplace, this injury type is all too common.

2. What other workplace injuries pose a risk?

Other common workplace injuries include:

  • Repetitive use injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Slip and fall
  • Overexertion
  • Vehicle accident

3. How can chiropractic care help with my work injury?

If your work injury results in an issue with your back, neck or spine, spinal manipulation and a chiropractic adjustment can be invaluable. These treatments as well as interventions to correct joint imbalances help pave the way for more rapid healing. Chiropractic care brings safe, non-invasive, drug-free pain relief.

4. What is the value of chiropractic care for work injuries versus other treatments?

Instead of treating an injury at surface level or merely addressing symptoms, chiropractic diagnosis and care get to the root of the problem. Treatment often brings rapid pain relief and facilitates healing in a deep way that few other treatments can.

5. What does chiropractic care focus on?

Chiropractic care looks at the body holistically and treats it as a complete system. For example, your back injury may have been exacerbated by a misalignment of the hips. Chiropractic care will address all components of an issue and tap into the body's own healing forces to energize the healing process.

6. What other treatments can help heal my work injury?

We may recommend other treatments that complement chiropractic care as you recover from your work injury. Additional treatments include physical therapy, at home exercises, lifestyle advice, and nutritional counseling.
