Injured at Work?
Many people are surprised to find out that the majority of work injuries in Lexington do not occur because of serious accidents. The truth is that most injuries in the workplace happen from overuse injuries. Each year in the United States millions of dollars are spent to help individuals with this problem. In this article from LifeStyle Chiropractic, you will learn about how to improve your outcome if you have been injured at work.
The most common of all the risk factors associated with work injury is repetitive stress. Small tasks that happen with a consistently altered posture create big problems over time. Work activity like repetitive twisting and turning or working on a computer for hours is physically strenuous, and can cause overuse syndrome. You would think it's the big package that falls on you that would cause most work injuries, but it's the small ones handled often each day that create the majority of injuries.

If your injury involves the spine, it is vital that you are being treated by a chiropractor. Many employees are referred to the company doctor following a work injury. They either typically get medication prescribed, or home rest, or they end up in physical therapy. Physical therapy is sometimes necessary, but physical therapists don't have the advanced education with the spine or extremity manipulation that a Doctor of Chiropractic has. This leaves some patients struggling to recover properly.
