Work Injury Chiropractic at Alpine Family Chiropractic

Common Work Injuries

A work injury is when you get hurt simply by doing your job. Often people think work injuries only happen in dangerous professions like construction. Of course, construction workers sustain injuries resulting from falls and lifting heavy materials, but the fact is anyone can be injured on the job.

Many professions involve repeating the same motions, which results in repetitive overuse injuries. These are common for anyone who works at a computer, or grocery clerks, for example. Something most people don’t realize is that mental health professionals are sometimes injured when they are assaulted by their clients—and that is a work injury.

At Alpine Family Chiropractic , we offer a comprehensive approach to helping you recover from work injuries. Dr. Andrew will perform a thorough examination and design a care plan to relieve your pain and get you moving properly. Depending on the injury, we may refer you out for massage, acupuncture or physical therapy. We also work with Spokane Work Injury Clinic to provide prescriptions, if necessary.

There can be a lot of hoops to jump through when you’re trying to get care for a work injury, and we take care of all those hassles for you. We can deal with the paperwork, get you in to see needed providers, help you get care authorized—even work with your employer to help you get modified or light duty while you recover.

Because people generally go back to their same job, there is risk of reinjury. That’s why we take the time to educate our patients about stretches they can do that are appropriate for their line of work. Stretching the right muscles before you begin work can loosen them up and help avoid injury. Similarly, taking breaks periodically to rest the muscles and stretch them again relieves the tension that can lead to injury.
