SE Portland Chiropractic helps you get back to work pain-free
ACUTE WORK-RELATED INJURIES
SE Portland Chiropractic accepts workers’ comp insurance so you can get back on your feet.
Workplace injuries happen. Whether you are working in an office or a warehouse, even the smallest trip or slip can lead to a painful injury. Twisting, pulling, lifting, falling, or working with heavy equipment can lead to sprains and sudden pains. Nurses, doctors, firemen, construction workers, and other professionals are especially prone to workplace injuries due to the hazardous environments.
Some common work injuries we see due to a misstep or poor work environment include ailments such as neck, back, and shoulder pain, sciatica, and pinched nerves. These injuries can make it impossible to continue working or be as productive as you once were. Luckily, our chiropractic care, combined with medical massage, provides immediate relief from consistent pain, tingling, or stiffness. With our comprehensive examinations and individualized treatment plans, your recovery from workplace accidents will be clear and effective.
Our goal at SE Portland Chiropractic is to get you back to work with the ability to perform your everyday actions easily and pain-free.
REPETITIVE STRESS INJURIES
Experience relief from your chronic pain or injuries
Work often requires repetitive action, no matter which field you work in. Office workers, for example, are prone to carpal tunnel syndrome, neck and shoulder strain, and other pains associated with desk work. Of course, occupations outside of an office environment also come with their share of hazards.
Typing, pulling, lifting, pushing, and twisting are common actions, but when repeated daily, they can cause wear and tear. As time goes on, these repetitive activities can weaken joints and muscles, leaving them more prone to injury, inflammation, or pain.
Some of the most common concerns our clients have revolve around repetitive motions in the workplace, such as typing or sitting for long periods. Carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, and other complaints related to repetitive motions in the workplace are NOT usually covered by workers’ compensation insurance. However, our practice accepts most medical insurance. We are committed to helping you find pain-relief from your chronic conditions.
In addition to workplace injury treatment, we also provide preventive treatment for those hoping to avoid cumulative trauma disorders. CTD occurs when excessive wear and tear on tendons, muscles, and nerve tissue is continuous over an extended period. Our injury prevention specialists administer precautionary treatment and adjustments, along with proactive techniques patients can use to reduce their risk of further injury.
