Restore Function to Damaged Muscles with Chiropractic Care

When thinking about employees who are injured on the job, we most commonly think of individuals who work in dangerous conditions. Construction workers, gas and oil field employees, or factory workers may experience workplace injuries more frequently, but they aren’t the only people at risk.

Injuries in the workplace can happen in just about any setting. Even those with desk jobs are at risk for developing an injury from lifting items or making repetitive motions, such as typing on a computer.

In many cases, chiropractic care is enough to get you feeling better or alleviate some of the pain you’re feeling. If your injury is related to your musculoskeletal system, including your muscles, tendons, or ligaments, chiropractic care may be just what you need.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

After an injury in the workplace, chiropractic care can help you restore full function of your damaged muscles, tendons or ligaments. Through adjustments or additional forms of therapy, you can feel as good as you did before the injury occurred.

Chiropractic care is non-invasive and makes a great supplemental treatment plan if you need more serious care after your injury. Your chiropractor may also use massage, electrical stimulation, or other treatment forms in addition to traditional adjustments.

Chiropractic Care and Workers’ Compensation

Chiropractic care is typically covered under workers’ compensation, although you’ll need to be sure to follow the appropriate steps. After you’ve been injured, let your employer know immediately that you’d like to make a workers’ compensation claim. They should help you through the process of making your claim.

If you are injured on the job, just call Dr. Mollins (chiropractor) immediately and receive care free of charge. Dr Mollins is a New York State certified worker’s compensation provider that will see you, even if you haven’t contacted your employer’s insurance company (does not matter if you have a claim number or not).

Dr. Mollins believes that good health is the most important thing, so if you are injured, see him immediately.  Typically, the sooner you see the doctor after your injury, the sooner you will achieve wellness.  If you wait too long, you may suffer dire health consequences.

If you’re ready to schedule an appointment with a chiropractor who specializes in workplace injuries, contact Dr. Jeff J. Mollins’ office in Brooklyn. Dr. Mollins and his team can help you overcome your injury and get you back to work healthy and pain-free.
