Workplace related injury is a serious concern for you and your employer. Every year, work-related injuries costs us all billions of dollars in lost productivity and wages. There are astronomical medical costs and employer costs that are associated with millions of lost work hours each year. The most common complaint and cause of disability in workers who are age 45 and younger, is back pain related to improper lifting mechanics. Another leading cause is physical and chemical risks related to hazardous environments in the workplace.
Affordable and effective care if injured at work
Chiropractic care is recognized as providing affordable and effective treatments for workplace injuries. Studies reveal that the cost of care for individuals who are treated by chiropractors is significantly lower that costs for those who are treated by traditional medicine. The studies also indicate that the duration of disability is also decreased when the patient receives chiropractic care. Numerous studies on the treatment of low back pain have determined that chiropractic care is the most effective treatment for low back pain. This explains the overwhelming numbers of injured individuals who have turned to chiropractic treatment. The following are a few of the most common reasons for workplace injuries:
- Improper lifting techniques
Injury occurs when an employee is uses improper mechanics, exerting a great deal of force on the back during tasks such as lifting, tossing, pulling, pushing, or carrying heavy objects.
- Motor vehicle accidents
When we discuss different forms of workplace injury, motor vehicle accidents often overlooked, but the numbers are significant. Motor vehicle related injuries occur if an employee is struck by a motorized vehicle. A classic example would be a forklift accident in a warehouse. Also included are car/truck crashes while travelling on the job with a company vehicle. Motor vehicle accidents victims most commonly experience head injuries, spinal injuries, and whiplash trauma.
- Repetitive use injuries
Employees who are required to perform the same actions repeatedly on a daily basis if injured at work, are particularly vulnerable to repetitive strain injuries. For example, worker who sit at a desk for hours, typing or assembling, can develop nerve or muscle damage that can result in numbness and tingling in their arms and fingers.
