Work Injury

Work Injury Care From Our Houston Chiropractor

A work injury accident injury or repetitive motion injury sustained in the workplace can put you out of commission, possibly for quite some time, rendering you unable to earn a living and provide for your family. No matter how you were hurt in the workplace, you need to seek care as soon as possible, not only for the sake of your physical well-being but to help support any workers compensation claim you may present. Here at We Got Your Back Chiropractic Rehabilitation, our Houston chiropractor can provide non-surgical care to help you get back to work.

Common Work Injury Issues

Work injuries can take a variety of forms, some more sudden and dramatic than others. A work injury accident injury such as a whiplash injury (if your profession requires driving), a slip-and-fall incident, or an attempt to lift a heavy object incorrectly, can cause immediate and acute problems such as torn muscles and herniated discs. The spinal alignment itself may shift out of its normal position, and pinched nerves may cause pain, numbness, tingling, or other symptoms in the upper or lower extremities.

At the same time, don’t dismiss those gradual, cumulative injuries that come from overuse or repetitive strain. Even in a “safe” clerical job, your office ergonomics may force you to constantly twist your body, stoop over to grab files, or hold your neck and hands at awkward angles. Over time, muscles and connective tissues in these structures may become inflamed, leaving you in constant pain. Ongoing stresses on the musculoskeletal system may also lead to back pain, plantar fasciitis, and muscular strain related to unnatural posture.

Chiropractic Adjustment and Other Work Injury Treatments

We Got Your Back Chiropractic Rehabilitation can help you regain your strength, range of motion, and ability to work without pain. Our Houston chiropractors can make careful, accurate diagnoses, not only of your current condition, but of the underlying factors that created that condition. Chiropractic adjustment and spinal decompression can shift misaligned joints and discs back into their proper place. Massage therapy and acupuncture can ease your pain naturally, without drugs, while stimulating the body’s healing mechanisms. Kinesio-tape and custom orthotics can lend extra support to the parts of your body that need it. We can also prescribe a physical rehabilitation plan to help you function like yourself again.
