Your occupation can have a serious impact on your health and wellness. There is a common misconception that your job has to be physical in order to result in an injury. Many different types of injuries can occur in the workplace. Accidents can occur in the workplace at any time. In some cases, such accidents are minor in nature, but that is not always the case. Below are a few of the most common workplace accidents and how Douglas Chiropractic can help you to treat or even avoid such injuries.
Common Workplace Accidents
Injuries sustained in the workplace can have a serious impact on your life, including keeping you from working and enjoying life to the fullest. Such injuries can be painful and frustrating. If they fail to heal properly, workplace injuries can even put your job at risk. Many injuries that occur in the workplace can be avoided or effectively treated with professional help from our office. These injuries include:
Diagnosing Workplace Accidents
The process of diagnosing a workplace accident will typically begin by asking questions about your job, the duties you perform as part of your job, and your lifestyle. We may also take a personal and family medical history. In some cases, we may perform imaging tests, including X-rays, to assess the extent of your injuries. Once the evaluation has been performed, we will then create a treatment plan for your injuries. This treatment plan will be designed to help you recover fully so that you can get back to your life and get back to work without suffering any limitations.
Getting Help for Workplace Injuries with Chiropractic Treatment
Once we have diagnosed your injury, will then work with you to address that injury. We provide a variety of treatment modalities to restore full function following an injury. These treatments may also include at-home exercises.
If you have sustained an injury in the workplace, please do not hesitate to contact Douglas Chiropractic to schedule an evaluation. Even if you do not believe your injury is serious, it is still important to be evaluated as soon as possible. In many instances involving workplace accidents, injuries and symptoms are not immediately apparent. Even so, symptoms may arise at some time later. If injuries are left untreated, they can result in chronic problems. There is no reason for this to happen.
