If you have sustained an injury at work, have been involved in an auto accident, or other type of incident, you may be left with a number of aches, pains, or problems with function. These issues can be improved with chiropractic care, which does not involve the use of strong medications or invasive surgeries that require long recovery periods. At Spinalcare Chiropractic Clinic in Richmond Hill, ON, we offer a variety of techniques to relieve pain and restore function.
Common Work-Related Injuries
Each work environment offers its own risks for injury to workers. Muscle sprains and strains can occur during lifting and reaching tasks. Slips and falls can happen on the job that can lead to ongoing mobility problems. Equipment injuries are also common. Repetitive motion injuries often arise as a result of work duties, such as carpal tunnel syndrome from constant computer use. These issues can also include back and shoulder injuries from awkward twisting while performing a task.
Common Accident Injuries
Whiplash is a common injury that occurs during auto accidents. It results from the fast forward and backward movement of the head during impact. Muscles, ligaments, nerves, and spinal discs can become damaged during this action, leading to neck pain, stiffness, poor mobility, dizziness, and headaches. Damage discs and muscles can transpire when you sustain a back injury. Injury to the shoulder can contribute to chronic pain and poor movement function.
Chiropractic Methods Can Improve Your Condition
Our chiropractor in Richmond Hill may utilize a number of different treatment modalities to help your injury. After a thorough medical history and assessment of your problem, our doctor will design a care plan to suit your individual needs. The plan may include a manual adjustment to re-align structures in the spine for better movement. Corrective exercises are designed to strengthen supporting muscles for more comfortable movement. Our chiropractor can also offer specific advice on arranging your work and home environments to prevent further injury.
