Work Injury: How Chiropractic Care Can Help
Work injuries are all too common- from ergonomic problems from sitting at your desk in your North Miami Beach office to slip and fall issues, work can leave your body hurting. Luckily, there are solutions for the pain that don’t have to cost you an arm and a leg and don’t require the use of painkillers. A natural approach is healthier for your body and more sustainable over time. Here are some common questions about work-related injuries, and answers on how your local North Miami Beach chiropractic office can help.
Is it Possible to Get Injured from Sitting Down all Day?
YES! The bad news- ergonomic injuries from stationary work are actually quite common. The good news- these injuries are totally fixable with regular chiropractic adjustments.
I Fell, and My Doctor Recommended Rest. Will Chiropractic Care Injure me Further?
When you seek chiropractic care, you’ll work with a licensed chiropractic professional. You’ll discuss your injury at length, and your chiropractor will recommend a course of treatment to help you heal- not hurt you further. In the unlikely event that you do experience pain after your chiropractic adjustment, it’s important that you talk to your chiropractor about next steps to ease your pain.
I got Hurt at Work. Will My Employer Cover Chiropractic Care?
It depends. If you’ve filed a workman’s compensation claim, you’ll need to go through your insurance payment agreement with your employer. If you haven’t filed a claim and are simply working through your pain on your own, it’s worth asking your employer if they will cover chiropractic care. Employers are often grateful that a claim is not filed, and they are willing to pay out of pocket for regular adjustments until you recover from your injury.
