These FAQs from Discover Life Chiropractic in Tacoma explain more about the causes of work-related injuries and how you can benefit from chiropractic work injury treatment.

Why should I see a chiropractor for a work injury?
Chiropractic care offers a natural means of treating musculoskeletal injuries, one that doesn’t require surgery or prescription drugs. Our non-invasive techniques and therapies work with your body to relieve pain and promote natural healing of muscle, joint, ligament, and tissue injuries.
What can I expect from an initial visit to Discover Life Chiropractic?
Our Tacoma chiropractor will review your medical history to get a better idea of your state of health. We’ll then review the details of your accident and discuss your symptoms. We’ll give you a full physical exam to determine the type of injury you sustained and its severity. We may order x-rays or other forms of imaging to confirm our diagnosis. This information will enable us to customize a plan for treatment. The sooner you come in for a diagnosis, the sooner we can start treatment to put you on the road to recovery.
How does chiropractic care help with work-related injuries?
Chiropractic therapies focus on pain relief and healing, so you can return to work pain-free. Our non-invasive treatments consist of chiropractic techniques, soft tissue massage, stretching, and strength building exercises to relieve pain, restore body function, and promote natural healing of your injury. Rather than mask your pain with prescription medications, our therapies treat the source of your pain to quicken your recovery.
How long do I need to see a chiropractor before I’m better?
Our treatment plans are unique for every individual. The extent of your treatment will depend on your injury. Our chiropractor will monitor your progress diligently to ensure you get the most from your treatment.
