Types of Work Personal Injury
Repetitive movements, whether you are typing all day, kneading bread in a bakery, or playing a musical instrument, can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome, a common work injury. If you suffer from carpal tunnel, you likely feel numbness or tingling in the wrist area. Your hands may have trouble gripping items or may feel weak.
Poor posture at a desk can cause a chronic tension headache as well as pain in the neck. Eye strain is another common problem that afflicts office workers who stare at a monitor all day.
Pain Management and Care for Work Injuries
Louisville chiropractor Dr. Perks provides chiropractic care for pain management of work-related injuries. Spinal adjustments not only help relieve pain in the back, they also relieve headache pain and pain related to carpal tunnel injuries. Unlike pain medications, which simply cover up the source of the pain, chiropractic treatments enable the body to heal itself, treating the problem from within.
