Work injuries refer to any type of injury or illness that occurs as a result of performing job-related tasks. Some common examples include back injuries, repetitive strain injuries, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Work injuries can be caused by a variety of factors, including poor ergonomics, repetitive motions, and lack of proper training or equipment.
Chiropractic focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders, with an emphasis on the spine. At Lupo Saladino Chiropractic in Middle Island our aim is to reduce pain and improve function.
Chiropractic care can be effective in treating a wide range of work-related injuries, particularly those that affect the musculoskeletal system. For example, back pain and neck pain are common symptoms of work-related injuries, and can often be treated effectively with chiropractic care. The doctors will also help to address other symptoms such as headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, and whiplash.
In addition to manual adjustments we may also use other techniques such as ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation, and heat or cold therapy to help alleviate pain and promote healing. We also utilize taping if necessary. We may also recommend exercises and lifestyle changes to help prevent further injuries and promote overall health.
It's important to note that, while chiropractic care can be an effective treatment for work-related injuries we may need to use imaging studies such as X rays or MRI's to help diagnose the problem. If necessary we will refer you to an orthopedist and work with them to give you the best possible outcome
