Millions of workplace injuries occur each year —some of them are serious enough to keep employees out of work for days, weeks, months and in some cases permanently. The talented and board-certified chiropractors at BC + PT are here to help you recover faster and reduce pain. Chiropractic care offers a variety of non-invasive treatments that help improve a variety of symptoms. Chiropractors are specially trained in taking care of the neck and spine, and have a few different techniques that they can use to treat workplace injuries.
Why is chiropractic care a good option for treating workplace injuries?
When you see a chiropractor, they will first evaluate your injury and help pinpoint the root cause of your pain. From there, they will choose a method that best fits your specific needs. Chiropractors use a variety of treatment techniques, including spinal manipulation, decompression, electrical stimulation, and more. All of these methods are used to help:
First and foremost, chiropractic care can help reduce the pain of your workplace injury. Chiropractors use certain methods to manipulate or adjust the spine to provide immediate relief, improve function, and help the body heal itself. Depending on what type of workplace injury you may have, seeing a chiropractor can benefit you and help improve your mobility and function.
Improve range of motion
Workplace injuries that occur in the neck or back may cause you to feel stiffness or pain and lose ability to move normally. Chiropractic treatments such as spinal manipulation or adjustments, trigger point therapy, and electrical stimulation are all used to improve flexibility and restore normal range of motion (and are all offered by our BC + PT chiropractic team!).
When parts of the body are injured and/or misaligned, inflammation is typically the body’s natural response. Inflammation can be characterized by pain, swelling, and sometimes even loss of function in more severe cases. Chiropractic adjustments have been proven to reduce inflammation in the joints. Once you have received treatment, your body can naturally raise the levels of certain anti-inflammatory agents that help it heal all on its own.
