One moment everything may seem fine while at work, then you bend over to pick up that heavy box of parts and you feel intense pain in your back. Now what do you do, continue to work, but the pain is too intense and performing your job duties becomes difficult if not impossible. It's important to remember that you and your injuries come first. A visit to a chiropractor should always follow a work related injury. Chiropractors are specialists in damage/injury to soft and hard tissue.
How Can a Chiropractor Help Me After My Work Injury?
Chiropractors are able to treat neck, back, wrist, knee, etc. injuries associated with work. Many times, individuals who have been injured at work experience such intense muscle pain and stiffness that they simply cannot function normally. When left untreated, this discomfort can be a serious issue.
Treating pain or that strained muscle should never be secondary to your job. If you’ve had a work related injury recently, your first priority should be taking the initiative to visit your chiropractor!
Always report your work injury to your supervisor or human resources.
