Work Injury Treatment With Our Tacoma Chiropractor
You don't have to be a manual laborer to experience a serious work injury. Unfortunately, hard-working people of all backgrounds and careers experience injuries on the job that can leave them off work and stuck with persistent pain. If you've been struggling with a personal injury sustained on the job, we encourage you to connect with our Tacoma chiropractic team at Discover Life Chiropractic.
Types of Work Injury Treated by Our Tacoma Chiropractor Staff
A work injury can occur suddenly due to a slip, fall, or while lifting heavy loads or operating machinery. However, work injuries may also develop more gradually due to the repetitive damage caused by poor posture, frequent sitting, or poor lifting mechanics. These incidences can lead to a range of musculoskeletal conditions, including:
- Muscle strains and ligament sprains
- Tendon tears or sprains
- Herniated disc and bulging disc
- Nerve compression (e.g., sciatica and radiculopathy in the spine, or carpal tunnel in the wrist)
- General neck pain, back pain, and joint pain
Injuries don't develop in isolation. At Discover Life Chiropractic, we help you understand the type of work injury you're dealing with and also identify contributing factors that increase your risk of injuries like stress, body mechanics, and areas of strength or postural imbalances.
Recovering From Work Injury: How Chiropractic Can Help
Our objective as your Tacoma chiropractic team is to guide your body through its own innate healing journey. Of course, we want to help you feel better, but we don't want to do that by simply masking your symptoms. That's why we use a range of therapeutic and personalized techniques that optimize your nervous system function, accelerate tissue healing, and maximize your flexibility, range of motion, and strength.
Techniques we specialize in for treating work injuries include:
- Chiropractic care: improve alignment in your spinal column to reduce stress on nerves, discs, and muscles while triggering natural pain relief via the nervous system
- Massage therapy: restorative manual touch to facilitate lymphatic drainage, swelling reduction, anti-inflammation, and mental as well as physical tension release
