Not all workplace injuries are the result of sudden catastrophic accidents. TPMI Chiropractic can help with serious injuries and workman's comp cases, however we also treat micro-skeletal and repetitive stress injuries. While physical labor is more taxing on the body, even those with more sedentary occupations can suffer from soreness and pain that builds up over time. The dependable and experienced chiropractic team at TPMI can help you feel better so that you feel less strain and less pain!
Some of the most common causes of workplace injuries include the following.
Neck & Back Strain From Physical Exertion
If you have a physically demanding job, you may be experiencing an injury from repetitive muscle use. Some patients experience a sudden strain or pull that causes harm to your neck and back muscles or spinal structure. Others may feel increasingly sore over time. Repetitive muscle use is the leading cause of injury in the workplace. Chronic back and neck pain from work injuries are treatable, we will help you get rid of your pain.
Neck Tension & Upper Back Pain From Workplace Stress
For those who encounter a lot of stress at work, this may manifest as pain throughout your upper back and shoulders. Stress can cause muscle tension over time and we often don't make the connection between our stress and neck or upper back pain.
Low Back Pain From Poor Posture
Even if you work behind a desk, you can develop low back pain from sitting in the same position for a long time every day. This is exacerbated if you have poor posture, which is a common cause of injury for office workers. Slouching and not having ergonomically appropriate office furniture can cause serious pain over time.
Back Or Limb Injury From Lifting Accidents If you are required to lift or move objects regularly during your shift, you may harm yourself by lifting with poor form. For most people, being exhausted is a factor because you are more likely to lose focus on your form as you get tired throughout the day.
Injury From Slip and Fall Accidents
The second most common workplace injuries result from slipping, tripping, or falling. Even if you believe that you are alright following a fall, it is important to get a physical evaluation to make sure that your spine is not of alignment. Neglecting the injury can make it worse later on.
I have met and worked with approximately a dozen chiropractors in the last 20 or so years, with many of them excellent professionals in the field. However, Dr. Schulz is far and away the best I've worked with.
I met Dr. Schulz in 2004 after a serious car accident. I was very fortunate in meeting him at that time because I believe he took months if not years off of my recovery. I have not met anyone as knowledgeable, skilled, dedicated or as caring as Dr. Schulz. With his help I am now back into tae kwon do competition.
