Work Injuries

Have you suffered a work injury that is inhibiting your ability to lead the active life you desire? If you are dealing with a work accident or injury, chiropractic treatment can get you back to work as soon as possible, and HealthSource is here to help make that happen.

Not all work-related injuries happen in the construction industry. In fact, quite a number of injuries we treat occurred in the office. Carpal tunnel syndrome and chronic neck pain can be caused by poor ergonomics or poor posture. One misstep on a wet break room floor could lead to a herniated disc. Improper lifting of a heavy box could result in chronic back pain.

One of the most common work injuries we handle on a regular basis is a back injury, which is usually the result of a herniated disc–although poor posture can exacerbate back pain. Many of our patients spend hours sitting at a computer, which strains muscles causing stiffness and soreness. Sometimes the solution is as simple as fixing poor ergonomics at the office, including adjusting chair height, moving the computer to a different spot, or providing back support.
