If you happen to suffer from a work injury accident injury, getting help from our Crofton chiropractor will relieve pain and discomfort promptly. There are several different types of scenarios that could cause a workplace injury. Here are some of the main ones and how a visit to our chiropractor at Capitol Rehab of Crofton is beneficial in reversing symptoms caused by an accident.
Many people suffer from back pain as a result of lifting heavy items in the wrong manner. It is important to wear a back brace when there is a need to lift something of excessive weight. Asking a coworker for assistance and using the legs to bear the brunt of the weight is also important. A chiropractor will take a look at a back injury and use manual manipulation of the spinal area to reduce pain felt.
Neck injuries, like back injuries, are caused by incorrect movements when moving heavy equipment, moving the neck suddenly, or the result of an incorrect placement of work equipment or repetitive movements of the body. A chiropractor will assess the body to determine the cause of the injury and will use physical adjustments, temperature therapy, or acupuncture to relieve pain.
If someone falls on the job, bruises, scrapes, misalignments of the bones, or sprains may occur. After a trip to a medical physician to rule out extensive injuries, a follow-up with a chiropractor is beneficial to relieve pain.
Improper placement of work equipment can lead to pain in the back, neck, eyes, and head. Adequate lighting is necessary to reduce the possibility of eye strain. In addition, making sure the body is comfortable when using equipment helps to keep it from straining to perform necessary tasks. Be sure to take plenty of breaks so repetitive movements do not cause pain in the body as well. Our chiropractor will make recommendations regarding proper ergonomics and will assist in relieving any pain that resulted from improper positioning of equipment.
A trip to our chiropractor after an injury in the workplace can reduce pain quicker than healing without assistance. They will use a variety of noninvasive treatments to minimize discomfort and speed up the recovery time. This includes help with exercising particular portions of the body to regain strength, the application of hot or cold temperatures to affected areas, manual manipulation to realign the body, acupuncture and massage.
