Did you know that an estimated one million (or more) back injuries are sustained in the workplace each and every year? Back injuries are one of the most common (and serious) workplace injuries and can be difficult to treat effectively. Back injuries in the workplace can be caused by a number of different things including lifting or moving heavy objects, repetitive movement, or simple inactivity. If you have suffered a back injury at work, you may benefit from chiropractic treatment like chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy and acupuncture. Catalyst Chiropractic & Rehab has extensive experience with work injury rehabilitation and recovery and can help develop a personalized treatment plan for your specific injury.
Non-Invasive Treatment For Back Injury Sustained At Work
A workplace back injury can be especially difficult to treat because you may still need to continue working during your treatment. This is one of the major benefits of chiropractic care, because it can begin working very quickly and provide you with short term relief, exercises for protecting your back from further injury, and ongoing treatment that addresses the injury, rather than just masking the pain (with pain medication). Preventing future injuries are a very important part of the treatment process when it comes to work related back injuries. After a back injury, it can continue to be vulnerable for many weeks or months, so increasing strength and range of motion is a critical part of any successful treatment and rehabilitation program.
The experienced staff at Catalyst Chiropractic & Rehab can evaluate your back injury and develop a personalized treatment plan that will address the specific injury you have sustained at work. Our treatment plan will be different depending on the cause and area of the pain. In addition, we can help you navigate the worker’s compensation claims that you may need to file to ensure that insurance will cover the cost of your injury. Chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy are very effective treatments for a back injury in the workplace. Often these two therapies are used together for even more relief and because they do not require reliance on pain medication, are appealing to many. We recommend coming into our Blaine, Minnesota clinic as soon as possible when you start feeling back pain, tightening or discomfort. Addressing the problem early will prevent even bigger problems down the road.
