Common Workplace Injuries and Chiropractic Care

Getting hurt on the job is not uncommon. Repetitive motion requirements and physical requirements at work can become difficult for you to manage especially over the long term. It’s estimated that about $50 billion a year in back pain incidents occur each year. It’s the most common cause of disability and many of those low back injuries – as much as 30% of them – come from work-related cases. Some 60% of all workers compensation claims relate to back pain. Chiropractic care can help you.

Some of the most common types of workplace injuries that we help our patients with through the use of chiropractic care include:

  • Back pain
  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Knee pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Sciatica or leg pain
  • Herniated discs
  • Hip pain
  • Pinched nerves
  • Arm and shoulder pain

If you’re involved in any type of incident where you are hurt on the job or you develop pain from the constant, repetitive motion of your work, contact our office for an appointment. With the help of a chiropractic adjustment, we can work to properly position your spinal column again, reducing pain and help you to gain a pain-relief life that doesn’t require the use of pain medications or surgery.

Treatments Offered at Our Joplin, MO Chiropractic Office to Relieve Your Pain from Work

Workers’ compensation plans, required under law, allows for chiropractors to be available to you if you’ve filed a claim for a work-related injury. When you come in to see us, we’ll create a customized treatment plan to address the specific pain you have. And, we’ll help you with advanced chiropractic care such as:

Chiropractic Techniques: We use a wide range of chiropractic techniques to help you improve motion and reduce pain. Among these are interferential therapy, active release technique, sacral occipital technique, and activator method.

Low-Level Laser Therapy: This type of targeted therapy can help enhance the way your joints move while also reducing inflammation in an impacted area. In addition to this, it helps to stimulate the body’s natural healing ability in that area.

Ultrasound with Low Volt Therapy: This treatment option also targets a specific area, often areas where muscle pain has developed due to inflammation or chronic use. This low volt therapy is very safe to use, non-painful, and highly effective.

Subluxation: When you use your joints and muscles in the wrong manner over time, this causes subluxation. With the use of chiropractic adjustments, we can reduce this nerve pain and the signals being sent to the brain about your pain.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: One of the most advanced techniques available, this method allows your body to receive the highest dose of oxygen possible, improving your cells’ ability to heal and regenerate. Ultimately, this creates significant healing and inflammation reduction.
