You can sustain a work injury at any time while lifting, bending, or performing repetitive motions. Chiropractic care offers a method to relieve pain and restore mobility without the use of drugs or invasive procedures. At Olsen Brothers Chiropractic in St. Paul MN, we provide care for patients with work injuries using a variety of specialized techniques.
Common Work-Related Injuries
Muscle sprains, injuries from contact with equipment, and falls are among the most common work injuries. Poor lifting techniques can cause back injuries. Working on overhead tasks often leads to shoulder or neck pain. Working at the computer for long hours can cause neck and upper back pain. Repetitive movements can lead to muscle and tendon injury. Poor organization of work areas can lead to a variety of injuries.
Symptoms That May Indicate A Work Injury
Chronic back pain is a common symptom that results from lifting, reaching, and twisting motions at work. You may experience aching in the shoulder or neck from repetitive movements. Your range of motion may be limited. Doing your usual work tasks may become more difficult. Discomfort and poor function may affect your life outside of work.
Chiropractic Techniques Provide Effective Relief
We will first evaluate your injury to determine the best course of chiropractic treatment for your individual needs. Manual adjustments will be performed to re-align spinal structures for improved movement. Traction may be used to separate vertebrae that have become compressed. Soft tissue manipulation helps to reduce pain and improve healing. Corrective exercise strengthens supporting muscles for better function. Massage therapy increases circulation to affected areas to facilitate healing. Cold laser therapy is used to reduce painful symptoms. Our chiropractor can also advise you on ergonomic techniques to utilize at your workplace to avoid further injury.
