How to Avoid a Workplace Injury

By Alexis Mills

We all spend a lot of time at work every day, week, and year. Even if you think your job isn't physically demanding, there are still things that you need to think about to avoid getting injured while at work. Even though you want to do the best job possible, it's important to stay connected to your body while doing it so you don't overwork yourself into an injury. The Joint Chiropractic sees countless patients every day that come in for work injuries that have ignored the symptoms for far too long.

Most Common Work Injuries

Day-to-day tasks at work can put serious strain on your body, even if it is just typing on the computer. Some injuries are from a sudden accident, but the majority aren't as exciting; instead, they are repetition injuries, coming from tasks that are repeated over and over and prove harmful. Here are some of the most common symptoms and injuries people get from work:

  • Nerve damage
  • Neck and back pain
  • Sprains
  • Headaches
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

How to Prevent an Injury

First and foremost, you need to be aware of how your body feels and not ignore it. If you aren't listening to your body and addressing the pain that you have, then it will only get worse. You can't treat a problem you don't think you have. So when you start to immediately feel a pain, fix the behavior that is causing it and start to heal the damage you have already done.

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms after a long day of work and not sure what to do, you need to get checked by a chiropractor. What's great about chiropractors is that they not only address the pain or symptoms, but work to heal the issue entirely. The aim of their care is to tap into the power of the body's natural healing system, thereby allowing the body to work optimally by having a functioning nervous system that, among other things, improves the immune system.

Also, at The Joint Chiropractic, your chiropractor will get a background of your lifestyle, including your work, and figure out which factors in your daily life are affecting you and causing you to incur these symptoms. Instead of trying to do trial and error yourself, chiropractors work to to discover the underlying issues and eliminate pain at the root.

Remember that even though we need work and our jobs to sustain our responsibilities, our health should be the first priority because without it, everything in life would be that much more difficult. So make your health a priority with chiropractic care at The Joint Chiropractic to help you heal any issues you have and prevent any from happening in the future.
