Car Accident Injuries
Unfortunately, a car accident can leave individuals with ongoing pain, stiffness, and problems with mobility. Chiropractic care offers a drug-free and non-invasive method to relieve residual pain, heal soft tissue damage and improve range-of-motion. At Everett Spine & Rehab, we can design an individualized treatment plan, using a number of different techniques, to speed healing.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), approximately 2.9 million nonfatal workplace injuries were reported in 2016 by private employers nationwide. Slips and falls accounted for most of those injuries. Moreover, sprains and strains were among the top reasons for missed days of work, states the BLS. Although overexertion wasn’t actually reported to the BLS, it does contribute to workplace injuries.
Back injuries are a common occurrence, especially in jobs where lifting is required. Those who have physically demanding jobs that require them to be on your their feet for long periods of time contribute to injuries as well. Those who work in an office setting are at risk for carpal tunnel, a condition that causes pain, weakness and numbness in the hand and fingers as a result of nerve damage. Tendonitis is a common injury at work, usually caused by performing a task repeatedly. Tendonitis happens when a tendon swells and attributes to pain.
