Injured At Work

Injured At Work

Work injuries can be very painful, limiting, and frustrating. Often work place injuries are due to repetitive stress leading to fatigue or poor workspace ergonomics. However, several situations exist that can lead to injury, some more serious than others.

Two of the most common areas injured in the work place are the back and the neck because of how much these areas are utilized in so many different jobs. Chiropractic can treat many different things, but it specializes in injuries to the neck and back. Chiropractic treatment for these injuries is gentle, non-invasive, and heals the tissues without the use of medications. Therefore, when suffering from a neck or back injury, come see us or another chiropractor.

Remember, it is not necessary to see a medical doctor before seeking chiropractic treatment for a work injury. Also, anyone who is injured at work should immediately notify a supervisor and obtain the name of a witness, if one was present at the scene. ***** For more information about reporting work injuries and your rights regarding treatments and compensations, go to: http://www.lni.wa.gov/ClaimsIns/Claims/default.asp
