We see all kinds of work-related injuries, and our experienced chiropractors are here to help you get back on your feet. If you're looking for a "chiropractor near me" in Yakima, WA, call us today!
What Kind of Work Injuries Can a Chiropractor Treat?
Work injuries are diverse, though so many of them result in damage to the spine, joints, and/or muscles. Unfortunately, many of these injuries are only treated with medication for pain management, which doesn't solve the underlying problem. If left untreated, a work injury can lead to a lifetime of pain with repeat flareups. The good news is that many of these injuries can be treated by an experienced chiropractor without having to rely on pain medication.
Common work injuries that we treat range from slips and falls, repetitive motion injuries, poor posture/seating, falling objects, lifting, and muscle overexertion. It's important to seek treatment as soon as possible when you first notice pain or you have suffered from an accident, as prolonging treatment can lead to further damage.
How a Chiropractor Gets You Back on Your Feet
As we have mentioned, using pain medication to treat work injuries only eases the discomfort; it does not treat the root of the problem. While there's usually nothing wrong with taking pain medication if you feel that you need it, it is important to understand that the actual issue won't get better unless it is directly treated. Many people find themselves taking pain medication for long periods (and often in increasing quantities) following a workplace incident because they are continuing to suffer from untreated injuries.
Our chiropractor uses drug-free and non-invasive techniques that are designed to provide fast and effective pain relief while increasing the patient’s range of motion. As a non-invasive treatment method, chiropractic care corrects your body little by little and puts it into a position in which it can properly heal naturally. Each patient's needs are unique, and so treatment plans are often very different between individuals.
