INJURED AT WORK? WE CAN HELP!

the best chiropractic care for work injuries

Did you know that over a MILLION work-related injuries occur each year? Many of these injuries are serious enough to keep people out of work for days, weeks, and even months on end. Horn Family Chiropractic is here to help!


MOST COMMON WORK INJURIES

No matter whether your job requires you to sit at a desk, drive a truck or move heavy equipment around, injuries can happen to anyone regardless of the type of workplace.  Common injuries include:

  • REPETITIVE MOTION INJURIES—activities that are performed over and over in the course of the day such as lifting, reaching, bending, twisting, and typing on the computer which can lead to issues such as tendinitis, sprains and strains, arthritis, and carpal tunnel syndrome
  • FALLING OBJECT INJURIES: head, neck, and back injuries can occur due to falling objects
  • FALLING: Injuries such as falling down stairs and slipping on a wet floor can result in serious injuries to the neck and lower back
  • OVEREXERTION: Lifting, carrying and holding heavy objects can lead to chronic pain and muscle strain

Even if you are just at the beginning of an overuse injury, or you are concerned that you may start to develop one because of the nature of your work, it is important to start preventative and early treatment to ensure that the issue does not progress to something more problematic. Our office can teach you preventative stretches and exercises to keep these types of injuries at bay.


HOW SOON SHOULD I SEEK TREATMENT AFTER A WORK INJURY?

It is important to seek attention as soon as possible after a work injury to ensure that you get the proper treatment required.  If you leave the problem untreated, it can lead to other problems and further complications.
