Struggling with a Work Injury in Cincinnati?
A work injury in Cincinnati can happen in a myriad of ways. Any way that your body can be injured could potentially happen at work. However, there are some common work-related injuries that chiropractors see and address regularly.
Carpal Tunnel at Work
sometimes abbreviated to CTS, is a big culprit for office workers. There are bones in your wrist that form a tunnel, known as the carpal tunnel. The median nerve travels from your elbow down through the carpal tunnel. When this nerve is compressed or irritated, it can result in pain, weakness, or numbness in the hands. This makes typing all day, working in a factory, or any other job that involves your hands difficult to maintain. Your chiropractor at Forest Park Chiropractic & Acupuncture can adjust your wrist and elbow joints to help with the pain. They can also suggest other therapies, like ice, to help with the situation.
Back or Neck Pain on the Job
is responsible for many workplace injuries. This can happen from slipping and falling. It can happen from improper ergonomics at a desk job. Working on a construction site or in a highly physical job can easily lead to back or neck problems. Whether the injury happens all at once or over time from repetitive stress on the body, these injuries reduce mobility and make daily tasks difficult. Your chiropractor can help with spinal manipulation therapy. This is a natural and non-invasive care. With the spinal column in its natural alignment, your back and neck are in a naturally healthier position.
Disc Injuries in the Workplace
A disc injury is a type of back injury that happens at a lot of workplaces. Your spinal column has interlocking bones (vertebrae) and discs that work as shock absorbers. These discs can become injured in a variety of ways, including coming out of their natural alignment. A disc injury can be incredibly painful. You may need to see a spinal specialist and doctor to have this addressed. Longterm, your care may include spinal surgery. In the meantime, your chiropractor can provide gentle care to alleviate pain and help you function.
Moving Forward With Your Work Injury in Cincinnati
During your first meeting with your chiropractor, they will work with you to create a care plan moving forward. Will this mean that you need regular chiropractic care? Possibly. It depends on your injury. They will also talk to you about other specialists you may need to see depending on your situation, and how to prevent further injury or care for yourself at home.
For example, your chiropractor at Forest Park Chiropractic & Acupuncture may recommend ice therapy or wrist braces for carpal tunnel syndrome. Your back pain may be improved by certain exercises that build your core, thereby improving your posture, and stretch the muscles in your back to relieve tension.
Remember that your chiropractor is on your side for your health and wellness journey, so ask them any questions you might have about your health and they can offer you guidance on how to get to where you want to be.
