Each year, approximately 3.3 million individuals in the United States alone are injured on the job. Work injuries can take a tremendous toll on a personâ€™s body, but not only can these be physically debilitating and impairing, they can ultimately prevent workers from actively engaging in both their personal and professional lifestyles.
Seeking immediate medical attention after experiencing a work injury can help improve the individualâ€™s chances for a successful recovery. For those who choose to wait or delay their treatment, the risk of further pain, discomfort and injury is much greater than those who receive healthcare as soon as possible. Fortunately, alternative treatment options, such as chiropractic care and physical therapy are available and evidence has shown the effective, long lasting relief these conservative treatments offer for people after a work injury.
Numerous work injuries are diagnosed depending on the individualâ€™s occupation, however, there are several common types of work injuries and symptoms which can frequently develop across the wide variety of jobs, including back and neck injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome and headaches.
After experiencing an injury at work, the symptoms can often challenge the individual’s physical and mental engagement in their professional lifestyles.Â While several types of work injuries occur after an individual has been involved in an unexpected accident on the job, most work injuries are primarily caused by repetitive overuse and constant overexertion of specific areas of the body.
