Medical & chiropractic care is a common thing to seek after any work-related injuries. Through non-invasive treatments we work to rehabilitate and adjust your body back to where it was before the accident.
In a slip and fall situation the body experiences an abrupt impact which may cause serious damage to the neck. In such incidences, the head whips forward and back which may cause damage to the vertebra, discs, nerves, muscles and ligaments of the neck and spine. This sudden and forceful movement is not something that the body expected and therefore, the shock caused to the muscle ligaments and vertebras can be quite severe.
In such injuries, there may not be immediate symptoms for up to a few days regardless of the trauma the body experiences. If you have been involved in some kind of injury at work, even though you may not have felt symptoms initially be sure to seek immediate medical attention.
Back pain from a work-related injuries can be one of the worst forms of chronic back pain. Unfortunately, this is a common issues with those who experienced accidents. While whiplash is often associated with neck pain this sudden start and stop of speed and force of the fall or related injury is enough to hurt even your spine.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome tends to be the most expensive of all work-related injuries! It is very important to treat and diagnose quickly and correctly. Many people believe that they have carpal tunnel from forearm or hand pain, and others confuse carpal tunnel with neurological disorders.
Headaches affect more than 80% of those suffering from whiplash. An immediate headache after an accident is understandable. Our bodies were not meant for such severe forward/backward motions.
We use a combination of manual therapy to restore movement in joints, soft tissue rehabilitation to help tight or damaged tissue and even home care to give you a personalized treatment program that will help speed your recovery.
