PERSONAL INJURY CARE
Injuries in the workplace or getting into an accident that results in an injury impacts your lifestyle and mobility. Depending on the location of the injury and type of wound, appropriate treatment solutions will vary. However, problems that occur at work often allow you to work with chiropractic professionals to address your concerns.
What Are Personal and Workplace Injuries?
Personal injuries refer to wounds and trauma that are the result of an accident. A workplace injury is a personal injury that occurs at your place of employment. Essentially, personal injuries include auto accident injuries, slip and fall accidents or physical trauma that arises from lifting heavy objects at work. Nearly one-third of all injuries at work cause back pain and stem from accidents or incorrect lifting.
Since a large number of back, shoulder or neck injuries at work result from lifting, the resulting damage usually relates to poor spinal alignment, a slipped disc or strained muscles. We focus on healing the cause of your pain through natural treatment strategies.
Common Injuries We Treat
At Fraum Center for Restorative Health, we see and treat a variety of injuries from many types of accidents. The most common injuries that we treat include:
- General neck, back or shoulder pain
- Pinched nerves
- Strained or sprained muscles
At our clinic, we evaluate your injuries through the use of screenings and tests to determine the underlying cause of your pain. In the case of auto accidents, you might additionally need X-rays for the analysis of spinal misalignment. We also want to rule out the possibility of broken bones that may require medical treatment. We always evaluate your injuries before we make treatment plan recommendations so that we can provide appropriate tools for your specific needs.
Natural Treatments and Recovery
The key to addressing workplace or auto accident injuries is in using the appropriate tools. We focus on your specific needs before we make any treatment suggestions. We evaluate the underlying cause of your pain and then develop a strategy that helps your body heal without the use of harsh medications.
Tools we use to help with healing include:
- Chiropractic treatments
- Lifestyle modification
- Posture recommendations and education
- Suggestions regarding mobility and movement
- Supervised exercise programs
Education Is Key
Our treatment strategies go beyond basic pain management. We educate our patients about their injuries and teach them how posture impacts the healing process. We also provide information about appropriate exercises while you heal and movements to avoid until your body recovers. By improving your posture and ensuring that you know how to lift objects without risking additional injury, we provide the tools you need to help you through the recovery process.
Injuries occur at the most inconvenient times, but that doesn’t mean your options are limited in handling the pain.
