What Are Common Types of Work Injury?

Commonly seen work injuries include:

  • Tech neck: this is a temporary syndrome of neck pain and other symptoms that if not corrected may increase chronic tension and tissue damage in the cervical spine
  • Whiplash: neck pain and stiffness, headaches, jaw pain, and/or shoulder pain caused by forceful "snapping" of the head and neck
  • Rotator cuff strain: microscopic tears in the muscle fibers around your shoulder can cause tenderness, achiness, and weakness
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome: compression of the median nerve in the wrist can lead to numbness in the first few fingers (you may try to "shake out" your hand to temporarily relieve symptoms)
  • Back pain: a sore back can be caused by muscle strains, joint misalignments, or a disc injury (bulge or herniation)
  • Sciatica: compression of the sciatic nerve in the lumbar spine can cause buttocks and leg pain, numbness, and weakness
  • Plantar fasciitis: inflammation of the thick band of tissue under your foot can cause sharp heel pain

How Does A Work Injury Occur?

A work injury can occur acutely, due to a sudden fall, slip, auto accident, or heavy lifting accident. Likewise, a work injury could develop due to the cumulative effects of repetitive strain, especially if you have poor posture, poor ergonomics, repetitive movement, and poor body mechanics.

How Can a Chiropractor in Vaughan Alleviate My Work Injury?

Our chiropractor in Vaughan, as well as the rest of our team, can provide several drug-free services for your work injury:

  • Chiropractic adjustments gently guide your spinal joints back into place, reducing pain and protective muscle spasms; adjustments also trigger natural pain relief in the whole body by "resetting" the nervous system
  • Acupuncture alleviates tension in trigger points within the fascia and other connective tissues
  • Physiotherapy introduces you to exercises to help you heal tissues and maximize your core stability for better spinal alignment in a variety of postures 

These aren't all—check out our entire list of services which can be custom-tailored to you!
