Frequently Asked Questions About Work Injuries

Work Injury FAQ with our Boca Raton Chiropractor

Back pain is caused from a variety of sources--not just back injuries. Nearly all types of back pain can be alleviated by chiropractic care (a rare few require surgery). Aside from work injury and other sources of muscle and ligament strain, back pain may be caused by bad ergonomics at work, ruptured or bulging disks, or skeletal irregularities--all of which are treatable with chiropractic care.

Can Work Injury Occur Even if I Don't Do Any Heavy Lifting?

Absolutely! Bad ergonomics are a major cause of pain and even injuries, especially in the lower back, neck, and wrist/hand area. If you spend most of your day sitting down, even the most expensive office chair can't make you invulnerable to repetitive stress, the lessening or cutting off of proper blood flow, and just plain bad ergonomics.

Does Chiropractic Care Only Alleviate My Pain as Long as I Keep Coming Back?

Absolutely not! While proper care usually requires more than one session, it treats the root causes of your problem (whether neck injury, back injury, slip and fall, or other work injuries) , instead of just the symptoms.

How Can Chiropractic Care Treat My Injuries Where Traditional Medical Services Cannot?

A chiropractor will treat the source of your pain or injury, instead of just its symptoms. This includes not just the physical origin of your pain, but also any actions, activities, or other external circumstances that may contribute. At Boca Raton Health & Wellness, you won't just be treated for your work injury or other pain--you'll learn how to help keep it from coming back.
