Workplace Injury and Chiropractic Care from a Chiropractor on Our Team
Workplace injuries were once automatically synonymous with more traditionally hard labor incidences, like slip and falls and heavy equipment mishaps, but just because many people are moving inside and working desk jobs, whether from home or at an office, doesn't mean that workplace injuries do not happen. We at Westmoreland Chiropractic & Rehab Associates, serving Export, PA, Mamont, PA, and Greensburg, PA, are here to help.

What Is a Desk Injury?
Our chiropractic team might consider a desk injury to be a repeated strain injuries that can occur when one spends a significant amount of time sitting or even standing at a desk.
Sitting or standing in a poor posture at your desk can lead to low back pain and neck pain as your body is not at a correct angle. This is sometimes also referred to as "text neck" because it develops when a person stays hunched over, staring at a phone or other screen for too long. Such poor posture can lead to different types of conditions, such as low back pain, neck pain, and more.
Symptoms of a Desk Injury
Symptoms of nerve compression might include pain ranging from acute or chronic dull aches, trouble with leg and hand coordination, loss of sensation within the foot, numbness, general weakness one's appendages, and potentially even limping. Spinal compression might be able to be relieved with home care like heating pads. Spinal compression treatment at our chiropractor office might include techniques like spinal adjustment and lifestyle recommendations to help prevent further incidences.
Another type of desk injury is carpal tunnel. Carpal tunnel causes might be related to repetitive hand motions required when a person is typing, navigating a mouse, or using a tablet. Carpal tunnel may start out minor. However, left untreated and if the repetitive action continue, carpal tunnel might become worse. Carpal tunnel treatments include corrective exercises, chiropractic adjustments, and lifestyle changes.
