Treatment for Work Injuries From our North Massapequa Chiropractor
Dr. Vanessa Troise has seen her share of workplace injuries at Chiropractic and Holistic Wellness in North Massapequa. Work injuries often vary, ranging from posture related pain to slip and fall injuries. No matter the injury, our chiropractor can help you find pain relief from your workplace injury.
Common Work Injuries
Work injuries are mostly associated with heavy lifting, overuse injuries or repetitive stress injuries like continuous typing. These days, office workers are spending way too much time sitting and over time, poor posture can lead to chronic pain. Many jobs require lifting; poor technique often results in injury caused by twisting or turning the spine incorrectly. Common work injuries include:
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- slip and fall injuries
- back pain
- herniated discs
- frozen shoulder
Chiropractic care helps with all of these work-related injuries, whether they occur in the neck, back or limbs. We typically use two techniques—either spinal manipulation or mobilization—for treatment. Manipulation involves relieving pressure on particular joints to align muscles to relieve pain. Chiropractic treatment for work injuries often requires manual spine adjustments, to improve your range of motion and reduce nerve irritation. Mobilization is used for patients who need more gentle treatment; we use simple stretches to relieve joint pressure.
We may recommend the use of more traditional methods for pain and inflammation treatment, such as heat, ice or electrical impulse stimulation. We’ll get your spine and muscle imbalances corrected; your body will work naturally and you’ll be less prone to injury. Here at Chiropractic and Holistic Wellness, we avoid treatment options that involve powerful prescription painkillers, and instead, do everything within our power to help your body heal naturally to reduce the likelihood of re-injury, surgery or other invasive treatments.
