Workplace Accident Injury Treatment at Back to Mind, Your Chiropractor in Hollywood, FL
At Back to Mind, your chiropractor in Hollywood, FL, we commonly work with patients who have suffered a workplace injury. When an injury occurs on the job, your employer may be responsible for providing workers’ compensation to cover your medical losses. A key component of workers’ compensation is chiropractic care. If you have been hurt at work, whether it is an acute injury or chronic pain, we highly recommend coming in to see your chiropractor for care.
Common Types of Workplace Accidents and Injuries
We see a wide range of workplace injuries occurring as a result of negligence. In some situations, injuries occur as a result of slips and falls. However, other pain comes from repetitive motion, such as repeated use or overuse of limbs or joints. The most common types of workplace injuries we see include:
- Back injuries leading to low back pain
- Neck and shoulder pain
- Head injuries (often causing neck pain)
- Hip and joint pain
- Leg pain
- Carpal tunnel or wrist pain
If you are suffering from pain, limited mobility, or the inability to perform tasks you used to, our team can help you. We recommend seeking medical attention for any head trauma or life-threatening condition. However, even days later, if you feel sore or unable to move properly, we recommend coming in to see your chiropractor in our offices.
How Can a Chiropractor Help with Work-Related Injuries?
When you visit your chiropractor for any type of work-related injury, we’ll provide you with a thorough examination. We’ll ask you about symptoms and what occurred during the incident. We’re happy to help you with any necessary workers’ compensation paperwork as well. Once we gather this information, we’ll recommend a treatment plan customized to the specific injuries you have. This may include:
Chiropractic Adjustments: With specific, gentle force to specific areas of the spinal column, we may be able to reduce the pain you feel in your neck, back, legs, or other joints. Chiropractic adjustments improve the alignment of your spinal column, reducing your pain.
Massage Therapy: We often recommend massage therapy for instances in which muscle pain occurs. This therapeutic procedure works to reduce muscle pain by speeding natural healing in the area. We’re able to reduce inflammation and trigger points as well.
Lifestyle Advice: In some situations, we may recommend lifestyle changes. For example, we can help you to re-learn the proper methods for moving your body to avoid further pain. If you spend a great deal of time on your feet, we’ll recommend treatments to address this pressure on your spine.
