Treatment Methods When Injured on the Job

When you’re hurt at work, it’s important to take the time your body needs to heal. Returning to work too quickly, even if you want to, can lead to larger problems and pain that persists. Of course, you can’t stay home forever, so staying safe while eventually returning to work is a matter of knowing what to do. Here’s what our team at Motus Integrative Health recommends as you heal from your work-related injury. 

Treat Wrist Injuries With Chiropractic

One kind of injury you want to be absolutely careful about are wrist related injuries. Tendonitis, wrist sprains and joint problems can lead to long-lasting health problems if you push yourself too hard. For instance, one of the key symptoms of tendonitis is nerve pain. You may feel numbness in your fingers or a burning sensation that extends to your fingertips. If you have this issue, you need to make adjustments to your wrist posture and workspace. Invest in wrist support to keep your arms straight while typing. Find a comfortable mouse that allows your hand to rest in a natural position. Taking care to fix your body posture will not only help you heal but also prevent future injuries. A chiropractor can help reduce your pain using natural methods.

Massage Therapy Can Reduce Back Pain

Back pain is one of the leading causes of chronic pain in American adults. Ranging from mild to severe, back pain can truly impact your work life, whether you have a desk job or are in construction. No matter what your career is, protecting your back from injury is important. If you already have a back injury, such as a pulled back, keep in mind that your body needs to rest. Muscle injuries in particular need rest since the fibers of your muscles need a chance to heal. In addition, massage therapy is highly effective on sore muscles as it reduces inflammation and promotes circulation to the affected area. 

Take More Breaks

When you are injured, avoid straining that part of your body as much as possible. Discuss temporarily changing your work duties with your manager until you are better. Alter your workday to let you take extra breaks. Divide up the balance between physical labor and less intense tasks.
