Injured at Work?

work injury

Many people are surprised to find out that the majority of work injuries in Ogden do not occur because of serious accidents. The truth is that most injuries in the workplace happen from overuse injuries. Each year in the United States millions of dollars are spent to help individuals with this problem. In this article from Utah Pain & Rehab you will learn about how to improve your outcome if you have been injured.

The most common of all the risk factors associated with work injury is repetitive stress. Small tasks that happen with poor posture create big problems over time. Twisting and turning while moving boxes and even continuous typing in a poor position. You would think it's the big package that falls on you, but it's the small ones handled more often each day that create the majority of injuries.


Work Injury in Ogden

Chiropractors have high success rates helping people with work injuries. Lower back pain and repetitive stress injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome, are just two of the more common work-related conditions that chiropractors regularly treat. When the spine and joints become misaligned it can commonly cause injuries. Joints that are misaligned cause swelling which can irritate surrounding nerves leading to multiple problems.

The sooner you receive proper care after a work injury, the easier it is to make a quick recovery. Chiropractic doctors are able to assess you condition and help you understand what it is going to take to recover. If you need to be referred out for additional services we are happy to help refer you.

If you have a misaligned joint it is vital that you are working with a chiropractor. Many patients never make it that far which is unfortunate. Their employer sets them up for a medical visit and they end up in physical therapy. Physical therapy is sometimes necessary, but physical therapists are not trained to correct misaligned joints. This leaves many patients struggling to recover properly.
