Workplace Injuries

Nobody likes it when they have to bring work home. But, that’s what happens when injuries at work start to inhibit your ability to perform your job and then the effects come into your personal life.

If you’ve been injured on the job, or are experiencing negative physical symptoms due to the demands of your profession, The Rejuvenation Center can create an individualized treatment and recovery plan to get you back to work. We’ll also help you to return to performing your regular activities in the pain-free state you were in before so that you can spend quality time doing the things you love..

Workplace injuries that we commonly see include:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Shoulder pain
  • Hip misalignment
  • Low back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Muscle stiffness
  • Neck pain
  • Back injuries from heavy lifting
  • Subluxation of vertebral joints from a fall at a job site
  • Injuries related to professions in construction such as herniated discs or knee problems
  • Slip and fall injuries

Can a Chiropractor Help With Workplace Injuries?

A chiropractor is an expert in the musculoskeletal system – that is the bones, muscles, and tendons that are connected throughout the entire body. In addition to injuries such as slip and fall accidents, many modern-day work practices also have lasting effects on our body. For example, sitting at a desk for many hours can cause poor posture, stiff neck, shoulder injuries, and sciatica. That’s just from another day at the office.

At The Rejuvenation Center, our chiropractor Dr. Brad Miller isn’t just interested in readjusting the spinal column. He will also advise you on improved ergonomics for you at your worksite, exercises and preventative steps you can take to reduce repetitive motion or job-based injuries. We’ll create a custom treatment plan that takes into consideration your profession, injury, and lifestyle.

When the body is aligned properly with chiropractic treatment, some workplace injuries can be prevented. And when accidents do happen, spinal realignment and therapy can provide relief, reduce inflammation, and treat chronic conditions.

Can a Massage Therapist Help With Workplace Injuries?

Massage is highly effective in treating workplace injuries. Our licensed massage therapist Bri Francom is a Master Bodyworker who will work through a multitude of modalities to create the best treatment plan for your particular injuries. As someone who is skilled in medical massage and sports massage, she will assist you in getting back to normal. Massages that are targeted to muscle groups and to the particular types of strain placed on the body in a given profession. Treatment will relieve pain and improve the body’s ability to heal itself.

Not all pain from work comes from an injury. Sometimes, it just comes with the job. A prime example is carpal tunnel syndrome, which is the swelling of the wrist tissues until they press on the median nerve leading to the hand. Repetitive motions such as typing, writing or working with your hands can cause incredible pain. Massage of hands and wrists by a skilled massage therapist can provide relief.

Every situation is different. A personalized treatment plan will be designed for you and could also include some or all of the following:

Trigger point therapy

Trigger points are tiny nodules that form within muscle tissue and can refer pain to many different areas of the body. Rather than working on the areas where pain is felt, trigger point therapy seeks to identify and release the trigger point itself thereby eliminating all referred pain. Treatment involves consultation, frequent feedback, and a series of pressure and release cycles.

Swedish massage

A light to medium pressure flowing massage that allows for deep relaxation. This modality may be used to treat body issues resulting from stress and anxiety.

Deep tissue massage

A targeted deep pressure massage that focuses on the deeper layers and on tissue surrounding muscles. Treatment aims to relieve chronic muscle tension and acute pain and may involve slow static pressure and deep breath techniques.

Craniosacral therapy

Intended to treat headaches, migraine, and nerve tissue damage, craniosacral is subtle work that produces powerful results. This modality aims to unwind and release stuck facia, the tissue surrounding and connecting all muscles. This can stimulate the nervous system and allow healing to take place. Treatment is relaxing and focuses on the spinal column including the neck, the head, and the sacrum.

Medical massage

This type of massage is specific to a medical issue or necessary therapy and can also treat the effects of car accidents, whiplash injuries, and sciatica.

Myofascial massage (MFR)

A massage therapy that focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness. Myofascial release therapy increases flexibility, body function, and pain relating to the soft tissue.

Lymphatic drainage massage

A manual release of lymphatic ducts and glands, which improves circulation of the lymph fluid, and boosts the immune system.
