Workplace injuries can greatly disrupt your life and your ability to make ends meet. Seeking the proper care and treatment throughout your recovery can make all the difference in getting you back to your career and allowing you to live a pain-free life. No matter where you work, you run the risk of sustaining an injury on the job. Workplace injuries can range from concussions to carpal tunnel and require months and even years of recovery.
If you’re wary of surgical or medication oriented solutions to your workplace injury, look no further than chiropractic care. Chiropractors are trained medical professionals who can help you work through a variety of injuries, including those sustained on the job. Chiropractors can also help you document your injury and receive the compensation and insurance benefits your need to sustain your way of life until you can get back to work
Chiropractic Care for Common Injuries
As chiropractors, we’ve seen it all and specialize in helping you combat the symptoms, side effects, and recovery process resulting from your workplace injury. Chiropractic care focuses on a holistic approach that truly takes your specific lifestyle and goals into consideration while treating your injury and pain.
Some common workplace injuries that chiropractic care can help with, include:
- Falls from a distance
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Injuries from repetitive stress or motions
- Connective tissue injuries
- Torn ligaments and tendons
- Muscle pulls
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck pain
- Herniated discs
If you’ve sustained any of these injuries on the job, you should immediately seek medical help to document and treat your injury. Even if you think you’re not seriously injured, it’s always best to seek the evaluation of a medical professional. Many times you experience a rush of adrenaline following an injury that can hide pain and other more serious symptoms.
Compensation and Insurance
Navigating a workplace injury can be difficult and overwhelming. If your employer offers workers’ compensation, you will need to follow a strict set of deadlines and rules to document your claim and receive compensation. Your insurance will also need to be notified and proof provided to them in order to receive coverage for your medical needs.
Luckily, chiropractors offer the one-on-one treatment that is ideal for establishing documentation of your workplace injury and completing a successful claim. The sooner you reach out to a chiropractor after suffering a workplace injury, the better. We’re accustomed to working with the Texas Department of Insurance and their Division of Workers’ Compensation to help you validate your claim and receive the benefits that you deserve. We can help you establish impairment ratings and secure any benefits to which you’re entitled throughout your recovery process.
