Work Injuries Q & A

What should I know about work injuries?

Work injuries include any type of health condition that occurs or develops while performing your job. It’s important to report the problem and get a thorough evaluation as soon as you suffer the injury or you become aware of the problem.

What types of work injuries benefit from chiropractic care?

Under California law, workers’ compensation covers chiropractic services. Work injuries frequently treated by chiropractors include soft tissue injuries such as sprains and strains caused by lifting and moving. The team at Peninsula RSI Chiropractic Wellness Center also treats back, neck, and large joint injuries that often occur on the job. 

If your job requires repetitive tasks such as typing, assembling, bending, lifting, carpentry, or playing a musical instrument, you’re at risk of developing an overuse injury. This type of repetitive strain injury responds well to chiropractic treatment.

How are work injuries treated?

Peninsula RSI Chiropractic Wellness Center uses a full range of integrative care to treat work injuries. You receive the combination of services that’s best for your health care needs.

The cornerstone of your care is chiropractic treatment, such as spinal manipulation and mobilization. The experts at Peninsula RSI Chiropractic Wellness Center are highly trained in many chiropractic techniques designed to treat conditions affecting your spine and extremities.

Depending on your underlying injury, you may be a good candidate for spinal decompression. Your provider may perform manual decompression or use the DRX9000, a cutting-edge traction system that gently decompresses the spine.

Soft tissue recovery is an essential component of chiropractic care. Your provider may recommend class 4 lasers or electrical stimulation units to treat soft tissues. The lasers are specially designed to safely stimulate natural healing and energy production. Electrical stimulation may promote healing in muscles or relieve your pain by masking pain signals in nerves.

Ongoing rehabilitation and massage therapy are additional services often used to treat work injuries. Both reduce inflammation and pain, promote healing, and improve range of motion. Rehabilitation also strengthens your muscles and focuses on the physical training you need to return to the job and prevent future injuries.
