Chiropractic Care for Work-Related Injuries in Davidson, NC
Work-related injuries are surprisingly common and can have a lasting impact on your life, both in the office and at home. The human body is a complicated network of nerves, joints, muscles, and ligaments, and can get hurt in a variety of ways. Contrary to popular belief, work-related injuries are not limited to jobs that involve manual labor. Repetitive motions, poor posture, and office work can result in chronic injuries just as easily as more physically demanding jobs. If you’re dealing with a work-related injury or accident, you may be unsure of the best way to start healing. Fortunately, the experts at Inspire Chiropractic can help.
Our Davidson chiropractors work with you to determine the source of the injury and help you get back to work as quickly as possible with safe, natural chiropractic care. We even deal with any applicable FMLA paperwork and documentation necessary for your employer, so you can focus on healing. Our goal is to get you back to your level of health before the injury and to prevent any relapses in your physical condition.
How Can Inspire Chiropractic Help?
Chiropractic care can be used to treat a variety of injuries and conditions without the need for invasive medical procedures or surgeries. By using techniques such as spinal manipulation and massage therapy, our Davidson chiropractors can alleviate pain caused by work-related injuries and get you back to work sooner. We can treat injuries such as:
Carpal tunnel, also known as median nerve compression, is a medical condition that leads to tingling, numbness, and weakness in your wrist and hands. It is most commonly caused by compression of your median nerve, which runs down your arm and passes through the carpal tunnel passage. The median nerve controls the feeling and movement of your fingers and thumb, with the exception of the pinky, and can lead to extreme pain when damaged. Carpal tunnel is typically caused by either the subluxation of bones or thickening ligaments in the wrist due to repetitive motions. This is most often associated with office and clerical work that requires patients to use computers for most of the day. Fortunately, Inspire Chiro can help. Our Davidson chiropractors work to relieve pressure on the median nerve through manipulation of the cervical spine, wrist, and elbow. Massage therapy has also been found to be a beneficial, non-invasive treatment for the long-term effects of carpal tunnel.
Disk Herniation On their site it is spelled ‘Disc.’ From my understanding, the medical spelling is ‘Disk’
A herniated disk, also known as a slipped disk, a ruptured disk, or a disk protrusion, is an often extremely painful experience that can leave you unable to move or work. While typically unpleasant, a disk herniation is a surprisingly common occurrence and can range tremendously from mild to severe. The spine is made up of bones called vertebrae that protect the spinal cord, and spongy, gel-filled cushions called disks that separate them. In some cases, the exterior layer of the disk can become compromised, allowing the gel to protrude. This disk prolapse often irritates surrounding nerves, leading to pain, muscle dysfunction, and nervous system disruptions. While many people believe that the only option is surgery, that’s not the case. Chiropractic care has been found to be an effective treatment of herniated discs, allowing people to get back to work significantly sooner than invasive medical procedures allow. At Inspire Chiropractic, our Davidson chiropractors can help restore normal neurological function after a work-related injury through spinal manipulation to remove stress on the nervous system and encourage your body to self-heal and self-regulate.
Sciatica is a common medical condition that is often caused by a compression of the sciatic nerve or irritation of the lower lumbar and lumbosacral spine roots. It is typically associated with lower back pain, pain in the legs while sitting, hip pain, tingling in the lower extremities, numbness, and more. Though common, its severity can range tremendously, from mildly irritating to incapacitating, and if left untreated will only progress. Fortunately, at Inspire Chiropractic, we can help your body treat sciatica without the need for medications or surgical procedures. Our Davidson chiropractic office offers a variety of chiropractic services to treat sciatica and help you feel better. Our massage therapy works to induce deep muscle relaxation that releases endorphins that act as a natural painkiller to target sciatica. Spinal adjustments can help ease relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve, reducing pain and lessening symptoms. Finally, Chiropractic exercises avoid additional sciatic stress while working to relieve the pressure of inflamed muscles.
