WORKER’S COMPENSATION AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE
Many workers compensation injuries occur from lifting or carrying heavy objects or from trauma such as a fall.
Other injuries occur because of jobs requiring repetitive motions which can strain and pull tendons and muscles. If you have been injured in a work related accident or have a work related physical injury, worker’s compensation chiropractic care can be extremely beneficial.
Conditions of work-related injuries we see most often in our office include:
- Low back pain
- Carpal Tunnel
- Disc herniation
- Hand/wrist pain
- Muscle spasms
- Neck and back sprains
- Neck pain
Chiropractic methods are used to treat not only back injuries, but neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists and hands, tension and migraine headaches, muscle spasms, pinched nerves, hip pain and post-surgery back pain.
