Treating Work-Related Injuries

Find out how our chiropractic team can improve your work-related injuries.

The National Safety Council reports that every seven seconds, a US worker is injured on the job. That’s 540 work-related injuries an hour. If you are injured on the job, you could simply pop painkillers and hope for the best, but why chance it? It’s your health, after all. If you’re looking for a holistic and natural approach to healing after a work injury, our Cary, IL, chiropractor Dr. Alan Barthen and the team at Cary Disc Center are here to help.

Common Work Injuries

Since our chiropractic team treats workers' compensation injuries this makes it easier for our Cary, IL, patients to get the immediate care they need after a work-related injury. Some of the most common work injuries we treat include,

  • Migraines and headaches
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Bursitis and tendonitis
  • Back and neck pain
  • Shoulder and arm pain
  • Knee pain

If you’ve been injured on the job, it’s important that you don’t ignore the problem. Even if you aren’t experiencing symptoms right away not getting the proper treatment after an injury could lead to long-term pain, weakness and instability. Not to mention that it will be a lot tougher to submit a workers compensation claim if you wait until symptoms show up.  

Turning to a Chiropractor for Work Injuries

Regular chiropractic care can benefit most people dealing with work-related musculoskeletal injuries who are looking for more natural solutions. While some patients may require pain medications to alleviate and manage more severe pain, we also offer our patients a drug-free approach to treatment that helps to realign the body to improve how it functions as a whole.

When the spine is out of alignment this can lead to pinched or irritated nerves, back and neck pain, limited mobility, swelling and inflammation, weakness, and numbness and tingling. Through simple, pain-free spinal manipulation we can improve the spine’s alignment and alleviate these symptoms.

Through massage therapy, physical therapy, specialized exercises, low-level laser therapy and more, Dr. Barthen and his team can provide you with the comprehensive care you need to treat work-related injuries and get you back on your feet.
