Chiropractic Care For Worker’s Comp Injuries
Injuries can occur in any Oklahoma workplace because all jobs carry a certain amount of risk. If you’ve been injured while performing your job duties, workers’ compensation laws allow you to apply for wage and medical benefits. However, workers’ compensation is not your only resource if you are suffering from pain, limited mobility or discomfort due to your injury.
Thrive Chiropractic Group can help with work-related pain. With over 14 years of experience in the Oklahoma area, we’ve successfully relieved pain and discomfort for many workers. We are able to help you immediately at our offices if you choose to file it under your normal medical insurance or pay out of pocket for the services. Your employer will need to approve care to be covered under Worker’s Compensation at our office. Our experienced doctors have worked with many companies to provide care in this way.
Common work injuries include:
- Repetitive strain injuries (RSIs). Overuse and repetitive motion injuries can affect everyone, from coders and writers to factory workers. RSIs can include tendonitis, back pain, wrist injury and carpal tunnel. When left untreated, these injuries can become debilitating and inhibit motion. Chiropractic care can address the pain and mobility challenges that come with RSIs.
- Falls: Whether from slipping on the floor or tripping at heights, falls are common in every workplace, including construction sites and offices. Falls can lead to chronic pain, hand injuries, back pain and other conditions that can warrant a trip to a chiropractor for effective and safe pain relief.
- Transportation incidents: Traveling for business exposes people to car accidents. Truck drivers, forklift operators and delivery personnel can also get in a traffic accident that could impact mobility and cause pain.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help Your Workplace Injuries
Workplace injuries can cause serious and long-lasting pain. Whether you’ve had an object fall on you or lifted one too many heavy boxes, pain can make it impossible to perform your work duties or even everyday tasks. When left alone or ignored, these injuries can become very severe over time.
The experienced chiropractors at Thrive Chiropractic Group provide an alternative to pain medication. As you know, taking a pain medication or muscle relaxer doesn’t actually fix the problem, it just makes you feel better for the moment. At Thrive Chiropractic Group, we strive to find and fix the underlying injury to allow you to heal and function normally. Working with a chiropractor can help you avoid the side effects of medication that could impact your ability to turn to work. You can even combine a chiropractor’s services with your medication if the medication alone does not relieve your discomfort.
Chiropractic care for work injuries is also less invasive than surgery and can provide relief. While surgery can take days, weeks, or even months to recover from and requires you to take time off work, you may start seeing results right away with chiropractic care.
