Work-Related Injury? 3 Reasons to See a Chiropractor Afterward

When you get hurt at work, you automatically think about seeing a physician as soon as possible. However, if you have no broken bones or other major injuries, they may not be much help. It’s time to see a chiropractor! Why should you start treatment with this highly trained professional in this situation? Here are three reasons a chiropractor should be on your priority list after a work-related injury.

Chiropractic Care Is Non-Invasive and Drug Free.

When you talk to your physician or even a medical specialist about your injury, they may recommend surgical procedures to correct the problem. Not only will this kind of treatment involve a lot of down time for recovery and rehab, but it may also prevent you from being able to do your job for quite a long time, costing you and your family precious financial resources. On the other hand, chiropractic care does not include a scalpel, allowing you to continue most activities without having to endure the pain and trouble of surgery.

Especially when you think of opioids and other medications, it makes sense if you’re a little apprehensive about prescription pain drugs from your physician. Most of the time, they only mask the underlying issue, leading to continued use and addiction. Fortunately, chiropractors do not utilize these potentially dangerous medications. Chiropractors use your body’s natural processes to heal the cause of your pain, giving you lasting relief without a prescription.

Your Chiropractor Can Address Joint, Spinal, and Soft Tissue Injuries.

For many patients who suffer from joint pain, tight muscles, herniated or bulging disks, or ligament issues, medical doctors don’t have many solutions to resolve the situation. In contrast, chiropractors specialize in the nervous system and restoring the body’s natural alignment. For example, if you have back pain as a result of a disk that’s pressing on your spinal nerve, your chiropractor can guide the spine (and the disk) back to its proper alignment, removing the source of your pain.

Chiropractic Care Can Relieve Pain from Repetitive Stress Injuries.

Many jobs out there involve repetitive motions, whether you sit at a desk or lift heavy objects. As a result, some people develop issues like carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, or tendinitis in the rotator cuff—just to name a few. Instead of treating just the symptom, chiropractors treat the actual injury itself and can restore more function to these areas of the body with ongoing care.

In the end, if you suffer from a work-related injury, make sure you schedule appointments with your chiropractor. They can give you care you won’t receive from your physician and help you get back on track.
