Work injuries are unfortunate, but over the last 60+ years, the doctors at Black Hills Chiropractic have been providing effective treatment for work related injuries. Lower back pain, neck pain, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica all can be symptoms of a work related injury and effectively treated with chiropractic care.
Lifting and slip/fall injuries are the most common mechanism of injury reported in the work place. Repetitive motion injuries are also very common. These consist of things like carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow and patellofemoral syndrome. These are usually not sudden onset injuries, but tend to occur over a period of time and can result in the inability for the worker to perform his/her job.
The doctors at Black Hills Chiropractic are trained in all types of workplace injuries. Along with treating the specific condition, they may recommend changes in your work station ergonomics, lifting technique or anything else that may be prohibiting the proper healing of your injury.
