Work Place Injuries
What you do for a living can have a big impact on your body – and your job doesn’t have to be physical for that to be true.
There are many kinds of injuries that can be sustained in the workplace. Some injuries are a result of an accident (such as a fall) or from repetitive movements.
Lifting and twisting can cause tremendous stress on the spine and the object being lifted does not have to be heavy to cause an injury.
Long hours at a desk looking into a computer screen will take a toll on the body as well.
Many work place injuries may cause neck and back pain, sciatica, headaches, hip or leg pain, shoulder or arm pain. If you are suffering from pain that is keeping you from doing your job, it is time to make an appointment.
Many work place injuries respond well to chiropractic care.
Dr Charlton is able to give advice on work place ergonomics. This ranges from lifting techniques to work station set up to create less stress on the body.
