Work Injury FAQ
At Willow Bend Chiropractic, our Plano chiropractor helps hard-working Texans get back to work by providing natural and non-invasive techniques to help them heal from a work injury. We get many questions about this important health concern.
Common ones we see include:
A work injury is often caused by an acute trauma. People who slip and fall or people who are involved in motor vehicle accidents may experience whiplash or disc herniations, for example. Heavy lifting with poor body mechanics may also lead to a muscle strain or disc injury.
A work injury can also occur in people with sedentary jobs. Excessive sitting imposes a lot of strain on the low back and may lead to chronic back pain, degenerative disc disease, nerve compression, and osteoarthritis. Poor ergonomics (environmental set up) and repetitive movement can also lead to issues like carpal tunnel syndrome.
