Chiropractic Treatment for Workplace Injuries

Some people may not immediately think of seeking chiropractic care for a workers’ compensation injury, but chiropractic treatment is an appropriate means of treatment for numerous on-the-job accidents and overuse injuries.

Brooklyn NYS Workers Compensation Board chiropractor, Dr. Mollins may be able to help you to heal from any number of injuries associated with work, such as construction accident injury, repetitive motion injuries (like carpal tunnel) and lower back pain due to your job duties, among many others.

How a chiropractor can help treat workers compensation injuries

Workplace construction or other types of accidents, slip-and-falls or even everyday overuse caused by repetitive movements you are required to perform in the scope of your employment can lead to some nasty injuries.

The ligaments, tendons, joints and bones throughout your body may have been placed under great strain, which can lead to a multitude of physical ailments, most notably spinal misalignment. When things are “out of place” it has the potential to cause aches and pains, stiffness or soreness that can be sharp and excruciating or dull and aching.

Unfortunately many injuries of this type have been known to linger for days, months, even years after the original injury. Dr. Mollins can provide ongoing chiropractic care to help you through the worst days and keep you more limber and more pain free overall through the less difficult days.

A greater ease of movement is a common positive side effect of chiropractic treatment in the time following the initial development of pain, whether it be an injury of an accidental nature or one that has developed through overuse over time. As inflammation subsides from the original injury or the “breaking point” of an overuse injury, movement will become easier and easier.

Through chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Mollins can realign the spinal ligaments to reduce the overall strain a patient feels throughout his or her entire body. This realignment usually translates to less aches and pains, meaning less soreness and stiffness and great mobility.

The focus of your beginning recovery is usually on restoring alignment, while the later stages typically tend to focus on strengthening the body to make it less susceptible to certain types of injuries.
