Rehabilitation and Pain Management Following Work Injuries

Many work related injuries are caused by regular, everyday activities on the job. Most occupations require a worker to make repetitive movements throughout the day. Overtime, these repetitive tasks can result in musculoskeletal tension, dysfunction, and pain. Repetitive stress injuries, such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, are some of the most common work related injuries we treat. Other typical work related injuries are in the back and neck also related to extensive, repetitive movements. These injuries are hard to indicate right away because the onset is very gradual. The goal is to heal the injured worker, that way they can go back to their daily activities in a safest manner possible.

For many people taking time off work to recover from surgery isn't an ideal option. Also, many patients who do undergo surgery for back pain and carpal tunnel require revision surgery when their symptoms return in the future. Chiropractic care on the other hand, addresses the root of your pain to provide long lasting relief.

Studies have shown that chiropractic treatments are effective for a number of work injuries including back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, repetitive stress injuries, sciatica, neck pain, headache, migraine, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Whether you're a manual laborer with a back injury or an office worker with neck pain, Dr. Dahl's chiropractic care can get you back on the job and free of your pain.
