3 Reasons to See a Chiropractor After a Work-Related Injury

3 Reasons to See a Chiropractor After a Work-Related Injury

Accidents happen, even at work. If you've been injured on the job and are now experiencing neck pain, back pain, or some other dysfunction, it's important to see a chiropractor as soon as you've been medically cleared by your physician.

What Is a Work-Related Injury?

Even people with desk jobs can sustain an injury at work! While individual factors vary--including location, severity, and type of injury--the most common work-related injuries include:

  • Spinal disc herniation
  • Spinal facet joint locking
  • Chronic back or neck pain
  • Muscle strain or spasm
  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Whiplash
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

Mechanisms of injury include repetitive use, prolonged overhead movement, heavy lifting, and/or improper body mechanics or ergonomics.

Top 3 Reasons Why Chiropractic Care Can Help With Your Work-Related Injury

1. Faster healing and pain-relief. Chiropractic care includes treatments that accelerate tissue healing, reduce inflammation, and promote pain relief--often faster than prescription medications alone. Treatment may include spinal decompression, corrective exercise prescription, and chiropractic adjustments.

2. Drug-free and all natural services. We offer safe, effective, non-invasive and drug-free treatment options that pose little to no risk of side effects for you, including complementary interventions such as acupuncture and massage therapy.

3. Prevention of chronic dysfunction. The team at Rumley Family Chiropractic P.A. performs a thorough physical and neurological examination to identify your active symptoms AND identify and resolve the underlying cause. Potential underlying causes that make you more at risk for a work-related injury may include muscle-length imbalances, postural abnormalities, or even decreased mobility and energy flow within the spine.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I got into a car accident. My first one ever in fact. I wasn't really sure where to turn or what to do, but I knew my back and neck were pretty messed up and I needed some help. I did a quick Google search and found exactly what I needed. The Rumley Family website was very professional appearing and they got back to me quickly. I started my treatment and felt like a part of the family from the get go. Treatment was consistent and they paid deep attention to where I actually hurt unlike some doctors that tell you what hurts when it doesn't. Im very satisfied and I would come back again"

  • ""They are very nice family and very generous"

    This year I recently got into a car accident with my boyfriend and we were referred to Rumley Family Chiropractic for treatment. They took great care of us each visit we went to and helped us get better over the months. They are a very nice family and very generous. We recommend this place better than any other place!"
