Work injuries can be devastating, whether it’s emotionally, physically, financially, or some combination thereof. The goal at Van Ness Chiropractic is to get injured workers back to work as quickly and safely as possible. However, we never send workers back to the workforce before they are physically prepared. Repetitive motions, repeated day after day, often result in cumulative type trauma. When a worker performs the same motion dozens, hundreds or thousands of times each month, a repetitive strain injury can occur. These injuries usually occur gradually, and can be much worse than an accident like a sudden fracture, for example. Because the severity of the injury is not always known right away, the trauma can be exacerbated by continued use after injury. Neck and back injuries account for 90% of the injuries occurring at work. These injuries also cause the biggest work absenteeism and are the largest expense for companies in the worker’s compensation arena. The Van Ness Chiropractic team has specialized training in repetitive strain injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Other injuries that we commonly treat include: knee, hip and joint injuries, rotator cuff injuries, and a variety of neck and back sprain/strains. Without proper healing, it’s more likely that the same work injury will later reoccur. Let Van Ness Chiropractic help you to get out of pain and restore you to comfortable and pain-free functioning.
