Work Injury Treatment at Phillips Chiropractic
Getting injured on the job is stressful, especially if your work injury begins to impact other areas of your life. At Phillips Chiropractic, Dr. Jeffrey Phillips and our Woodland staff help patients recover from pain and discomfort using only natural, non-invasive, and drug-free treatment options.
Work Injury Causes and Risk Factors
Who gets work injuries? It's not just people with physically demanding jobs, although construction workers, farmers, nurses, and other professionals who do a lot of heavy lifting and repetitive movements are often at risk. However, we often see patients suffering from work injuries who primarily work sedentary jobs, such as truck drivers and office workers. This is because too much sitting, poor ergonomics, stress, and a lack of proper sleep and nutrition can all lead to serious health-related issues when left untreated. Our chiropractor will diagnose the root cause of your work injury and help you understand ways of preventing it from reoccurring.
Types of Work Injury
A work injury can be acute or chronic. Unfortunately, untreated acute work injuries often develop into chronic problems. That's why seeking help as soon as possible for a nagging work injury can make such a difference to your career and long-term health. Common work injuries we see at our Woodland chiropractic clinic include:
- Muscle strains, ligament sprains, and other soft tissue injuries
- Nerve compression syndromes, including carpal tunnel syndrome and sciatica
- Back pain and neck pain
How a Chiropractor Treats Work Injury
If you or a loved one needs help managing a work accident injury, contact us for a professional assessment. Dr. Phillips will start by providing a thorough physical examination to clarify your diagnosis and identify any underlying factors that could have contributed to your initial injury. From there, our chiropractor can implement personalized treatment options right away. Common treatment options we offer for work injuries, include:
- Chiropractic spinal adjustments
- Corrective exercises and stretches
- Massage therapy techniques
- Lifestyle and nutritional guidance
The overall goal of your care is to give you tools that will help your body heal and help you get relief from your pain, stiffness, and other symptoms. As a result, many of our patients tell us they head back to work feeling better than they did before their injury.
