Chiropractic Care for Auto and Workplace Injuries

Back PainWorkplace Injuries

Sustaining an injury in the workplace can be a traumatic time for people. Not only does it limit the productiveness of the individual, but it can seriously hamper their personal lives. Performing daily tasks becomes difficult, especially for those experiencing limited mobility due to back or neck pain. Even life’s simple pleasures, like playing with children or walking the dog, becomes difficult. Some work injuries are sustained by accident while others accrue over time through repetitive motion or by overexertion. Whatever the cause of these debilitating injuries, they can prevent people from enjoying life and living to their full potential.

One way to limit pain and to improve the chances of a speedy recovery is to have the injury checked out as soon as possible after an accident. At Chiro Life Clinic, we perform evaluations of these types of injuries and implement plans to correct them through physical therapy, chiropractic care and education.

Back and Neck Injuries

Back and neck injuries are the most common types of injuries workers experience on the job. For employees working in industrial work environments, like a factory or on a construction site, their bodies are routinely subjected to tremendous strain which makes them susceptible to spine injuries. Office workers are also at risk. Sitting in an office chair all day performing the same repetitive motions presents a risk of injury. Service workers also develop back and neck pain due to long periods of being on their feet. At Chiro Life Clinic, we can help eliminate the pain associated with these types of injuries.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Repetitive Strain

Carpal Tunney Syndrome (CTS) and Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) are common for office workers who may do a lot of typing, or for factory workers who engage in prolonged repeated motions involving the wrist and forearm. After many years performing these tasks, the median nerve is put under tremendous pressure. At Chiro Life Clinic, we educate our patients about proper posture and ergonomic solutions as we help eliminate the pain through physical therapy.


Many workers experience headaches as the result of work injuries. An injury to the neck can lead to a cervicogenic headache due to the irritation of the cervical spine. Stress or muscle tension can cause headaches as well and poor posture can also be a trigger. By providing proper care, Chiro Life Clinic chiropractors can help reduce the frequency and intensity of these headaches.

Auto Accidents

The impact one absorbs as the result of an auto accident can have long-term consequences, even if the symptoms of injury aren’t immediately apparent. Rear collisions are the most common type of car accident and the sudden jolt the body receives can result in a whiplash injury. The muscles and ligaments around the neck can become torn, stretched and inflamed resulting in intense pain. Not addressing these issues can result in long-term discomfort. Chiro Life Clinic chiropractors work to eliminate the pain and discomfort of auto accident injuries which allows patients to live happier, more productive lives.
