Why You Should Visit Johnson City Chiropractic Clinic, Especially if you have a Work-Related Injury
Unfortunately, workplace injuries are very common, especially in industries that involve manual labor and/or the use of machinery. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, almost 4 out of every 100 workers were injured on the job in 2014. As a result, nearly one-third of them missed at least one day of work due to the injury.
While some injuries occur as a result of serious accidents, many are due to less serious causes, such as strain or overuse injuries. Have you ever been injured while you were working? If you have been injured on the job, it is important that you visit Johnson City Chiropractic Clinic or your chiropractor as soon as possible to improve your outcome and prevent future injury.
1. Quicker Recovery
When patients come to Johnson City Chiropractic Clinic for a work-related injury, we do what we can help you recover faster than if you did nothing at all. Yes, some medications can relieve pain, but they do nothing to address the underlying injury responsible for your symptoms. The doctors and staff at Johnson City Chiropractic Clinic can help to correct the misaligned joints responsible for nerve irritation and inflammation, which aids in a faster recovery and a quicker return to work.
2. Prevent Re-occurrence
Research indicates that some injuries, that are not properly treated are more likely to recur in the future. Unfortunately, many people believe that an injury has healed once the pain has subsided. In reality, a body that has not been given the opportunity to properly recovery is more prone to injury reoccurrences in the future. At Johnson City Chiropractic Clinic we can help you prevent a possible future injury.
3. Johnson City Chiropractic Clinic Offers Less Invasive and Less Expensive Treatment than Many Other Options
Chiropractic should often be your first line of care for most musculus-skeletal workplace injuries. At Johnson City Chiropractic Clinic, the rehabilitative process is non-invasive and more affordable than many traditional treatment options. In addition, you may have no charges at all if chiropractic is covered by your employer’s workers compensation insurance. Here at Johnson City Chiropractic Clinic, we work directly with you and your employer to provide you with the care you need.
