Workers Compensation Injury Treatment in Roseville MN
Accidents and injuries happen on the job. It doesn’t have to be an acute fall or injury. The repetitive actions and movements that many jobs require place wear and tear on your joints, cartilage ligaments, muscles and tendons. It's your employer's responsibility to provide training and safe work conditions. You're entitled to compensation. If you are hurt on the job you are entitled to compensation and you are also permitted to seek out medical assistance to help recover and manage your pain. In Minnesota you are able to choose the provider of your choice as well.
Types of Workers Compensation Injuries We Treat
A common injury sustained on the job is a fall. A fall can occur as a result of slippery conditions and other similar hazardous conditions. Most often, people who fall on the job experience spinal injuries, knee injuries, broken bones or fractures. In some cases, the fall results in a head injury. Lifting injuries are another common injury that occurs while on the job. In many cases, lifting injuries lead to musculoskeletal issues such as a torn muscle or ligament or even spinal disc injuries. Those who drive for a living or who use a company car to commute to clients may get into a car accident and may suffer from injuries such as whiplash, head injuries and back injuries.
What a Chiropractor Can Do For You
A chiropractor has the ability to treat many types of work related injuries. If your injury resulted in misalignments or soft tissue damage chiropractic treatments have been proven to get the patient feeling better and back to work more quickly than using medications or going to a physical therapist. Realigning the spine reduces pain and takes pressure off of irritated spinal. In addition to traditional chiropractic treatments in the office a chiropractor will teach you how to do specific exercises that can help you regain flexibility, ROM and stability of your core muscles. All of these things give a higher potential to speed up the healing process and reduce pain. Our Doctors will craft a physical therapy program ideal for your specific needs. The exercises increase in difficulty as you heal, which allows for you to recover at a pace ideal for you. Our Doctors may also recommend or use deep tissue massage to help you recover from muscle strains. The massage targets the spasms of the soft tissue and increases lymphatic circulation as well. Massage can help promote blood flow to and from the area, which enhances your healing and makes the process quicker.
Why Choose a Chiropractor
