Addressing Work Injuries Correctly
Improperly treated work injuries are one of the top reasons why people end up having health conditions in later life that inhibit their mobility and freedom. If a serious injury is not addressed promptly, recovery can go in the wrong direction and result in long-term scarring, incorrect healing, and improper rehabilitation. The body will heal, but if not guided properly, muscles and ligaments lose their original flexibility, resulting in a lowered overall quality of life. Westmoreland Chiropractic & Rehab Associates has years of experience helping patients recover from work injuries in Greensburg and Export, PA.
Common Work Injuries
Neck and back pain are a common result of work injuries. The spine provides an incredible level of performance, but when it gets injured it impairs the performance of the rest of the body. It is easy to injure your back when lifting heavy objects. Sitting for long hours can contribute to back pain and disc problems. Other common work injuries include slipped discs, pinched nerves, sciatica, and wrist issues. Our chiropractor has years of experience addressing these issues.
2020 Made Some Work Injury Types Worse
With COVID-19, work has become more computer-heavy than ever. Long hours in front of screens have lead to an increase in computer-related work injuries. Stress and stress-related conditions are also spiking among many workers. Headaches, neck pain, wrist pain, and muscle spasms are all regular complaints as well.
