Chiropractor Work Related Injury Information

A work injury can leave you in constant pain while making it difficult to go back to work but relief is available with Total Health Chiropractic . Our team of skilled chiropractors offers safe and effective treatment that gets you back on your feet and assistance through recovery.

If you have recently experienced a work related injury, please read below.

Work Related Injury

Work injuries can occur to any one at any time, from the most hazardous of workplaces to the safest of offices. A fall in the breakroom or collision in the parking lot can impact the spinal column and force the discs out of alignment. Improper heavy lifting can cause enough spinal stress to herniate a disc, creating debilitating pain.

Two of the most common work related injuries include:

  • Poor posture that leads to carpal tunnel syndrome and back pain.
  • Holding your head at the wrong angle to view your monitor can cause soft tissue strain and misalignment in the neck, as well as cervical nerve impingement that produces pain, tingling or numbness in the arms and hands.

The doctors of Total Health Chiropractic focus on correcting every aspect of a work injury, starting with the nerves and bones, to correcting the joints and muscles. 90% of all work injuries involve the neck or back, both treatable with non-invasive chiropractic care. Our teams are equipped and ready to help with recovery and prevent future injury.

Workers Compensation

If you’ve suffered a work injury, the first step is to report that injury to your employer immediately. Workers compensation requires thorough documentation and confirmation of the injury by an approved provider. Our chiropractors serve on many Tennessee/Georgia workers compensation panels; if you don’t see us on your list, let us know and we’ll contact your provider ourselves.
