Chiropractic adjustments can be one of the best forms of treatment for a number of workplace injuries. Whether you’ve recently been injured or you’re looking for long-term results from a non-invasive, drug-free treatment, chiropractic adjustments can help you stay comfortable and pain-free.
Let’s take a look at some of the main benefits of chiropractic adjustments.
1. Lower Back Pain and Neck Pain
Slip and fall accidents can be common in the workplace. If you’ve injured your neck or back because of an accident in the workplace, chiropractic adjustments can help reduce that discomfort and make it easier to return to work.
2. Headaches and Migraines
While headaches or migraines may not seem like the direct result of a workplace injury, they can be the result of another spine injury. If you suffer headaches or migraines more frequently after a workplace injury, chiropractic adjustments can reduce the pain.
Sciatica pain can occur after a workplace injury. Because sciatica can be caused by a pinched nerve or herniated disc, you’ll want to get the right treatment to realign your spine and take the pressure off this nerve. Seeing a chiropractor for regular adjustments can reduce symptoms associated with sciatica, making it easier for you to get back to work.
4. “Frozen Shoulder”
Stiffness or pain in the shoulder, also known as “frozen shoulder” can make a number of tasks difficult at work. Frozen Shoulder may occur for a number of different reasons, but getting the right treatment can restore your full range of motion and make it easier to get back to work. Chiropractic adjustments can help reduce inflammation around the shoulder and make it easier to move.
5. Avoid Surgery
If you’ve been injured at work, you’re probably hoping to get back to the job as quickly as possible. In some cases, if surgery is recommended, you could be out of work for weeks or even months. Chiropractic adjustments may be able to help you avoid surgery, reducing your recovery time while restoring your functionality.
