Injuries that happen on the job can be frustrating because they interfere with your ability to work and can affect other areas of your life. Despite being careful day after day, workplace injuries can still happen to the best of us. Even with the best safety protocols in place, workplace injuries can happen to anyone at any time.
At Twin Cities Chiropractic in St. Paul, our team of chiropractic experts is committed to getting you back to work faster after a work injury. We can use our expertise to help you with a comprehensive care plan that gets you on the road to healing fast. We’ve put together this guide to how chiropractic care can help you recover.
Repetitive Motion Injuries and Microtraumas
One of the most common workplace injuries comes from repetitive motion injuries. These microtraumas typically have a slow onset and progression, making them difficult to notice at first. In many cases, microtraumas go unnoticed until the injury is so serious that it has a marked effect on a person’s ability to perform his or her job.
These types of microtraumas are one of the most common causes of work-related back pain. They can be caused by a number of contributing factors including poor posture and improper lifting techniques. They can also significantly interfere with your ability to do your job.
Slips, Trips, and Falls
Some injuries happen all at once due to an unexpected hazard in the workplace. Slips are often the result of slippery or oily floors from cleaning or other materials in the walkway. Trips are frequently the result of uneven surfaces in the workplace such as bunched up mats or depressions in the floor. Whether your fall is caused by a slip or a trip, falling in the workplace can cause damage that may be quick to heal or may keep you out of work longer.
Here are a few of the most common workplace injuries:
● Muscle tissue injuries
● Ligament injuries
● Vertebrae injuries
● Slipped or herniated discs
Recovering from a Workplace Injury
Workplace injuries can seriously impede your ability to do your job. They may increase the likelihood of additional injuries occurring if left untreated. They may also reduce your strength and significantly restrict your range of motion. But one of the most difficult workplace injury symptoms to manage is increased pain.
