Man suffering back pain at work Common Types of Workplace Injuries

Workplace injuries can range from mild to severe and include symptoms like pain, stiffness, numbness, tingling, and reduced activity tolerance. We see the following conditions often among our hardworking patients:

  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain (including "tech neck") 
  • Tendonitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome (this causes numbness, tingling, and weakness in the arm, wrist, and first few fingers of the hand) 
  • Muscle strain
  • Disc bulge or herniation (if an injured disc compresses on a nearby nerve, an impingement syndrome like sciatica or radiculopathy can develop, leading to pain, numbness, and weakness in an arm or leg)
  • Plantar fasciitis (heel pain)

It's important to realize that whether your job is primarily sedentary or highly active, you still may be at risk for injury. The following factors can all contribute to pain and dysfunction in the workplace: 

  • Repetitive movement
  • Improper heavy lifting
  • Slips and falls
  • Accidents while operating heavy machinery
  • Poor posture and ergonomic set-up
  • Excessive sitting or standing/inadequate rest breaks
  • Overweight and obesity
  • Psychological stress
  • Poor nutrition and hydration

How Our Irving Chiropractor Alleviates & Prevents Work Injures

Don't let a nagging issue turn into a significant problem that could keep you out of work. Our Irving chiropractor can heal many workplace injuries at several stages and severity levels using customized drug-free services, including:

  • Adjustments, which relieve pressure on tissues within the spinal column, trigger relaxing and pain-relieving hormone production and can correct minor spinal subluxations which may be exacerbating your symptoms
  • Lifestyle counseling, for sound and actionable advice on things like improving your ergonomics to losing excess body fat to improving sleep quality and stress management
  • Corrective exercises, to help you improve core stability and function of other muscles
  • Massage therapy, to increase local circulation as a way to reduce inflammation, relieve muscle and fascial tension, and allow our other services to work more effectively
