Have You Been Injured at Work in Portland?

the best chiropractic care for work injuries

Amazingly, most work injuries can be fixed by the best chiropractor in Portland. Work injuries do not typically result from a serious accident as one would think, they occur from repetitive stress to certain points in the body and develop from overuse. In all cases, there are many possibilities for work injuries in different fields of work. Most importantly work injuries can, and should, be treated before the pain becomes unbearable and needs surgery or develops into a condition that is untreatable. The article that follows includes risk factors for work injuries and explains how King Chiropractic Clinic is able to help you heal from a work injury.


Repetitive Stress and Overuse Injuries

Simple tasks done with improper posture will create painful problems after long stretches of time. From sitting all day and typing to carrying large boxes while bending over, even the simplest tasks can cause acute and serious pain to sprout. Even with perfect posture, stress from repetitive work for eight or more hours a day can cause lasting pain or chronic issues over time. Below are some repetitive stress injuries that occur today:

  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Back Ache
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Slipped or Herniated discs
  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis

The full list is not by any means exhaustive. So if you are experiencing the start of an overuse injury or are at risk, it is wise to begin preventative care with a chiropractic consultation. This could prevent a lifetime of pain that stops you from living a fully healthy life in the future.


Work Injury in Portland

The spinal column is the central bone structure in the body and is commonly impacted from work injuries. This is often the source of the pain since the spinal column houses the spinal cord. When there is a misalignment from repetitive stress on the body the nerve fibers in the spinal cord are affected and cause pain to radiate to specific points in the body that might not even be injured. Additionally, when joints and bones are misaligned, it can cut the flow of signals from the nervous system and blood from the cardiovascular system which can cause pain and permanent damage in the long run to various systems of the body.

Symptoms:

  • Persistent pain after falling on the job
  • Persistent back and neck pain while sitting
  • Headaches
  • Leg and/or back pain

Causes of Work-Related Pains
Work-related injury covers a wide range of chiropractic focuses. Headaches, neck pain, and back pain often arise while at work, and, if these pains become persistent, chiropractic care can offer a solution. Repetitive work-place activities at a keyboard can result in carpal tunnel, extended hours standing can result in leg and back strain, and spending time at a desk can result in lower back and shoulder soreness.


How King Chiropractic Clinic Can Help
Chiropractic care can help combat a number of discomforts sustained in the work environment. Chiropractic manipulation and muscle relaxation will combat pains directly, but discussing lifestyle and posture with a patient as well may offer a more long-term solution. Developing a treatment plan that offers specialized chiropractic care within the clinic, and exercises for at-home care, results in a comprehensive approach that offers a long term solution to pain.
