Work injuries don’t have to cause chronic aches and pains. Find out how chiropractic care can help!
No matter whether your job requires heavy lifting or you’re at the mercy of a desk from 9-5 there are so many issues and injuries that can befall the American worker. If you’ve been injured on the job and can’t seem to manage your symptoms on your own find out how our Clarksburg, Urbana, Potomac and Gaithersburg, MD chiropractors can benefit you.
Back and Neck Injuries
Most American workers put strain on their backs day in and day out on the job, so it isn’t too surprising that so many patients come into our Clarksburg, Urbana, Potomac and Gaithersburg chiropractic offices with spinal injuries in the neck and back.
While it might seem that industrial positions like construction workers deal with this issue more often you would be surprised how many office and service employees also experience these problems. Fortunately, through chiropractic adjustment, physical therapy and even trigger point therapy your chiropractor in Clarksburg, Urbana, Potomac and Gaithersburg, MD can reduce your pain and discomfort.
Repetitive Stress Injuries
Any job that requires you to perform the same motion every day can cause joint problems and wrist and forearm pain. That’s why it’s fairly common to see patients with carpal tunnel syndrome, a pinched nerve in the wrist that can cause numbness or tingling in the hands and arms.
Not only can physical therapy, massage therapy and chiropractor alignment help treat these stress injuries but also educating patients on better ergonomics while in the office will go a long way to preventing further issues in the future.
Headaches happen to anyone, but they tend to show up more frequently in some American workers due to tension, bad posture or stress. And if you’ve had a neck injury or experience tension in the cervical spine you may be more prone to headaches. Fortunately, we can easily correct the alignment of your cervical spine to help alleviate your headaches. Chiropractic care has also been known to reduce the intensity or frequency of migraines.
Other types of work-related injuries
We have seen a number of other problems from numbness or pain in the extremities to bursitis and rotator cuff injuries. Through a full range of chiropractic services, we can evaluate your condition and create a treatment plan that will really work.
Don’t just suffer through pain and other physical ailments when relief could be just a chiropractic visit away. Turn to King Chiropractic in Clarksburg, Urbana, Potomac and Gaithersburg, MD for all of your bodywork needs.
