For many of us, our work puts food on the table and plays a major role in our identity. You may be ready to give everything you’ve got to your job — except for health and comfort. Unfortunately, work injuries do happen, and they can keep you in pain (and on the absentee list) for a very long time unless you get the proper care. Here at Churn Creek Chiropractic, we can provide effective, non-invasive work injury treatment for Redding CA residents.

Common Injury Scenarios: Work Injury Accident Injury vs. Chronic Work Injury

Work injuries afflict millions of Americans every year, and for a variety of reasons. You can sustain an acute work injury accident injury in a split-second, or you can develop a chronic work injury over a period of years. For instance:

  • Back injuries are quite common; these injuries are typically sustained during an ill-advised attempt to lift a heavy item without help. You can also develop chronic back pain if you’re constantly twisting and turning to reach files or other frequently-used objects.
  • Neck pain can occur on the job due to whiplash (notably in commercial drivers). But many modern-day cases stem from “text neck,” a kind of strain that occurs from “head droop” due to gazing down at digital screens.
  • Slip and fall injuries can jolt your entire musculoskeletal system. Your spinal joints and extremity joints may lose their alignment, causing pain, stiffness, and possibly even herniated discs and nerve compression.
  • Ergonomic injuries are common on the job. Repetitive shoulder motions, for instance, may cause painful shoulder problems, while incorrect keyboard technique or placement can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome.

How Our Redding Chiropractor Can Help

Our Redding Chiropractor can treat your work injury safely, effectively, and without the aid of surgery or medication. We can use a variety of chiropractic adjustment techniques to bring your joints back into alignment and restore their mobility, as well as flexion-distraction treatment to correct disc problems and pinched-nerve symptoms. Therapeutic techniques such as kinesiology taping and massage therapy can help you recover from a soft tissue injury. Physical therapy exercises can rebuild damaged structures and help you get your strength back. If your work environment has contributed to your injury, we can recommend changes in your desk/chair height, office arrangement, or other workplace ergonomics.
