Workers’ Compensation – Reasons to ask for lost wages
Many neck and back problems associated with workers’ compensation are the result of spinal misalignment, which means that the bones of the spine have moved out of position. Other work-related neck and back problems are the result of soft tissue injuries, such as whiplash, affect the muscles, nerves and connective tissue of the neck and back.
Musculoskeletal disorders affect a person’s muscles, bones, joints and connective tissue, such as tendons and ligaments.
A number of musculoskeletal disorders can keep a worker off the job, including:
- Sprains, strains, and tears
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive stress injuries
- Headaches and migraines
Chiropractic care focuses on the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders and other illnesses and injuries, making it an effective long-term solution for many workers injured on the job. Both chiropractic care and acupuncture are effective treatments for musculoskeletal disorders and other problems associated with on-the-job injuries. Chiropractic care and acupuncture support natural healing.
Chiropractic care for worker’s compensation may include advanced spinal correction using state-of-the-art chiropractic techniques and spinal adjustments, acupuncture, corrective exercises, lifestyle advice, nutritional counseling, custom orthotics, and physiotherapy. Spinal adjustments can free trapped nerves and alleviate pressure on the rubbery discs cushioning the bones of the neck and spine. Acupuncture stimulates the production of the body’s own painkillers and anti-inflammatory; it also supports the body’s immune system in ways that positively affect heart rate, brain activity, and blood pressure for patients struggling with workplace injuries covered under workers’ compensation.
