Workers Compensation

Chiropractic is an excellent means of dealing with workers compensation issues. If there's an injury on the job and you've gone down the traditional medical road to be treated, it may be time to give chiropractic a try. Chiropractors are professionals at dealing with underlying issues that potentially could be missed by medical doctors. Locating the source of your injury could be the difference between fixing an issue and living with something for a long period of time.

In addition to being professionals at uncovering underlying issues, chiropractors handle the healing process without the need for addictive pain pills and potentially risky surgery. If you've been injured at work, make sure to go see a chiropractor for an initial consultation.

Chiropractic Care for Workplace Injuries

Most people think of falls and sudden accidents when someone says they’ve been injured at work, but such injuries are only one piece of the puzzle. Some injuries are more gradual, caused by things like repetitive lifting, poor posture while sitting for long hours at a desk, walking on hard floors that eventually impact the joints, typing and other repetitive actions that lead to wrist pain, and more.

No matter what type of injury you sustain or how you sustain it, you want to heal from it as quickly as possible. You don’t want the pain to still be impacting your life and ability to work decades down the line. Read below as Dr. Rock and the team at Rock Family Chiropractic in Eudora, KS, share how chiropractic work injury treatments can help.

Eliminate the Root

Chiropractic care is based around the understanding that the body is equipped to repair and heal itself. However, it has to be in proper shape to do so. Therefore, chiropractic treatments focus on identifying and eliminating the root of the pain. By eliminating the root cause, there is nothing left to cause pain or impede the natural healing process.

Treat the Resulting Injuries

Any time you sustain a musculoskeletal injury, chances are high that there is more than one – especially if you didn’t receive prompt treatment. This is because as one injury is present, other components of the musculoskeletal system are put under undue strain.

For example, if you have sustained a herniated disc, you are likely going to experience nerve compression and muscle tension. Chiropractors combine treatment methods to ensure that both the root cause and any resulting issues are addressed, allowing for optimal healing and relief.

Address the Contributing Factors

Chiropractic care also works to reduce the likelihood of sustaining such an injury again. Your chiropractor will typically recommend therapeutic exercises that help stretch and strengthen troubled areas, correct posture, improve lifting techniques, and more, according to your needs. They’ll also provide personalized recommendations, such as setting up a more ergonomic workspace or wearing more supportive shoes.
