FAQ's About Work Injury Answered by Our Bangor, ME Chiropractor Team
The Bangor chiropractor and physical therapist team at Back in Balance Wellness Center in Bangor, ME wants patients with work injuries to achieve fast and effective relief so they can get back to work as soon as possible. Our services support your body's own healing journey, and we can teach you how to become more efficient, effective, and healthy in your occupation.
What Are The Most Common Causes of Work Injury?
Workplace injuries can occur due to acute incidents on the job, like car crashes, falls from heights, slips, lifting accidents, and so on. In other cases, a work injury may come on more gradually, usually as a result of chronic factors like excessive sitting, poor posture (while sitting, typing, driving, talking on the phone, etc.), poor ergonomics, repetitive movement, or unhealthy lifestyle factors like inactivity, smoking, stress, and poor nutrition.
What Are The Most Common Types of Work Injury?
Among the different kinds of work injury we evaluate and treat at our clinic, we frequently see:
- Whiplash and concussions
- Rotator cuff strains
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Tech neck
- Lateral epicondylitis
- Disc herniation or bulge
- Chronic back pain
Why Should I Seek Chiropractic Care if I Have a Work Injury?
Usually, a work injury involves more than meets the eye. Working with a chiropractor in Bangor can help you identify and address the unique risk factors contributing to your injury, including posture, ergonomics, and muscle imbalances and weaknesses (the latter of which can be corrected with exercises and stretches).
Our functional screens and tests can help you determine when to head back to work and/or resume typical work duties. Our adjustments can also trigger whole body pain relief and accelerate tissue healing by relieving tension in your central nervous system.
What Else Can I do To Heal Faster?
At our Bangor clinic we also offer massage therapy, physical therapy, and acupuncture (all under one roof!). Each of these disciplines can enhance the healing effects of chiropractic care, reduce inflammation, accelerate tissue healing, and more. We'll work with you to determine the best course of treatment for you, selecting the right type and frequency of services to best address your specific impairments and symptoms.
We can even provide you with individualized nutrition assessments and counseling to ensure that the food choices you're making are supporting your healing and recovery while also giving you the energy you need for a productive and focused day at work.
