Our Tips to Avoid Workplace Injuries

Published September 1st, 2020 by Dr. Hoder

With Labor Day quickly approaching, we are thinking more about our patients suffering from workplace injuries. Whether your job is physically demanding or not, what you do for a living can have an impact on your body’s function and overall health. Here are our tips to avoid common workplace injuries and how chiropractic can help.

Workplace Injuries

Injuries, in general, are frustrating, but when they prevent you from completing your day-to-day tasks at work, it seems even worse. Some workplace injuries occur due to accidents, but many are the results of strain and stress placed on your body due to repetitive tasks. A desk job may not seem physically demanding, but it can be just as hazardous to your health and we treat many patients that work desk jobs for:

With the help of your local chiropractor, these injuries can be treated and even avoided altogether.

Diagnosis of Workplace Injuries

When you come to Markson Chiropractic with an issue – whether it be reduced range of motion, discomfort, or pain – we will first look to find the root cause of your symptoms. That way we aren’t just treating pain as a symptom, but the true cause of your pain.

Your first visit will start with questions about your lifestyle, job, and other factors that may be contributing to the issues you are experiencing. We will also complete a medical history to understand the best approach to treating your issues, and once all information is gathered, we will determine a unique treatment plan for your needs.

Chiropractic Care: Natural, Safe, and Effective

Chiropractic treatment plans are easy on our patients because chiropractic uses only non-invasive, natural, and effective ways to deal with pain. We typically start with hands-on chiropractic adjustments to eliminate any joint restrictions or dysfunctions you are experiencing. We also use other methods including ice/heat therapy and massage therapy. We can also suggest exercises and stretches to do to reduce your symptoms and discuss lifestyle changes that may be in order for your continued health and wellness.
