Chiropractic Care for Work Injuries With Our Dallas Chiropractors
A work injury is one of the most common complaints seen here at Core Health Wellness in Dallas, Texas. In addition to the pain these injuries cause, it may keep you out of work, prevent you from enjoying your favorite activities, or otherwise affect your daily life.
That’s why our staff works so hard to help you not only get the relief you seek but do everything they can to help you heal completely from your injury and avoid future injuries.
Common Work Injury
A work injury is much more common than people may think. It includes any injury obtained while working, whether that is an accident injury such as that from a slip and fall, or an injury caused by poor ergonomic support or repetitive movements.
Sitting in a chair with poor support, poor posture, moving in the same ways repeatedly, and other ergonomic issues can have a severely damaging impact on the soft tissues of the neck, back, and other areas of the body. These types of work injury – like some accident injury – do not always present symptoms until it is too late to correct the issue easily.
How Treatment by a Chiropractor Can Help
By regularly seeing a chiropractor, some of these work injury issues can be avoided altogether. A chiropractor can help you to keep your body operating at peak levels by:
- properly aligning the spine and other bones
- freeing any pent-up tension in the soft tissues
- breaking up scar tissues
Treatments Our Chiropractor May Use
Even if you have not seen a chiropractor regularly – or maybe more so if you have not – seeing one promptly for a work injury is essential. To aid in healing and speed the full return of function and strength to your body, a chiropractor will employ a number of proven techniques. These may include:
- Massage therapy
- Mobilization which involves the movement, manipulation, and stretching of the muscles and joints to relieve pain caused by tension and compression
- Deep tissue massage
- Low force manual spinal manipulation
- Corrective stretching exercises
- Release methods such as the Graston Technique & Active Release Technique
