At Dr. Phillips Chiropractic Nutrition and Wellness, we have been helping residents of San Antonio, TX recover from work injuries for many years. Many types of work injuries can lead to long-term pain and immobility if left unaddressed. When you first visit our office, Dr. Phillips will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine the extent of your injuries before creating a chiropractic care plan to address them. Following are the answers to questions our chiropractor frequently receives regarding work injury treatment.
What Are Some Common Work Injuries?
Injuries can occur in even the most unlikely work environments. Some work locations are more dangerous than others. However, whether you’re sitting in an office all day or working on a construction site, there is a fair chance of you sustaining a work injury. Some of the most common work-related injuries include:
- Slips and falls
- Injuries from improperly lifting heavy objects
- Repetitive stress injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome
- Back injuries such as bulging discs
- Soft tissue injuries like sprains or muscle tears
- Neck injuries such as whiplash
- Head injuries such as a concussion
How Can a Chiropractor Treat and Alleviate My Pain at its Source?
The core principle of chiropractic revolves around discovering and treating the underlying causes of pain and discomfort. Rather than masking your pain with prescription medication or resorting to invasive surgery, our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine the root cause of your pain and immobility before creating a chiropractic care plan to address it. We will also consider your injury history to determine other factors that may be contributing to your pain.
What Are the Benefits of Chiropractic Care?
Ultimately, chiropractic care seeks to find optimal ways to achieve long-term pain relief through examination, treatment, and patient education. Over time, chiropractic adjustments will relieve your pain, restore your mobility, and improve your body’s natural ability to heal itself. Our chiropractor may also instruct you in corrective exercises. By performing these exercises at home, you will strengthen your body, further improving the effects of chiropractic care and reducing the likelihood of your pain returning in the future.
