Work Injury Treatment in Vero Beach, FL
Work injuries often affect individuals who work at heavy tasks. But they can also happen to anyone who does repetitive motions during their jobs or works at a computer can also suffer from a work-related injury. At Bartkus Chiropractic Center, we can provide chiropractic care to help you get back to your normal activities.
Common Work Injuries
Muscle strains and sprains often occur in the work environment. Incorrect lifting is often the cause of these problems. Injuries can also occur from slips and falls, running into open cabinets, carpal tunnel syndrome, and poor posture. Ergonomic injuries from poor positioning of equipment can also occur.
Back & Neck Problems
Back strains are a common problem in all types of work environments. Workers may overexert themselves or misjudge their ability, which can leave them with herniated discs and chronic back pain. Neck injuries are common with office workers that sit at computers all day and those that are on the phone frequently during the workday.
Slip & Fall Injuries
Slips and falls can affect a number of different parts of the body, including the back, neck, hip, elbows or knees. Even the actions to prevent or break a fall can lead to sprains and other minor problems. These injuries can leave ongoing issues with pain and impaired movement.
Workers may be required to twist frequently, reach in awkward positions or may sit in front of computer monitors that cause them to hold their heads and necks in unusual positions for long periods of time. We can provide relief of discomfort, as well as advice for arranging your work environment in a manner that avoids injury.
How Chiropractic Treatment Can Help
Studies show manual adjustment from a Chiropractor can be helpful in treating back and neck injuries, as well as other problems related to motor function. Physical therapy helps to strengthen muscles and return the body to a full range of motion. Massage therapy aids soft tissue healing, increasing blood flow and healing natural chemicals to affected areas. Nutritional counseling can help to enhance the body’s ability to heal itself.
