Surprisingly, the majority of injuries suffered at work are not the result of serious accidents, but rather, from overuse and repetitive stress injuries. While working, the largest injury risk you encounter is repetitive stress. Improperly lifting objects, sitting with poor posture at a desk, and many more small actions play a large role in your lifelong spine health.
Chiropractic Care for Repetitive Use Injuries
Max Physiotherapy is proud to offer successful treatment for WCB work injuries. The most common injuries we see are ones that revolve around the lower back and joints, such as carpal tunnel. Small tasks done with poor posture can create big problems over time. Twisting and turning while moving boxes or even continuous typing can cause both acute and chronic pain. Even if you have the correct posture, the simple act of doing the same movement day-in and day-out can create major problems over time.
What are some Examples of Repetitive Stress Injuries?
- Frozen Shoulder
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Back Ache
- Slipped or Herniated Discs
Chiropractic Care for Work Injuries
People experiencing WCB work injuries are often referred to a Chiropractor because of the high rate of success treating these types of injuries. Chiropractic care offers a gentle, non-invasive first step when seeking treatment. The sooner you receive proper care after a work injury, the easier it is to avoid further pain and complications.
The WBC can cover Chiropractic Care
If you are hurt at work, you can go straight to an authorized chiropractor for treatment. The WCB does not require that you see a medical doctor first. A chiropractor can submit assessment information to the WCB for review and can determine if your claim has been accepted.
