Workplace injuries don’t only occur during traumatic slips and falls at work but are more often than not, the result of repetitive movements, and caused by doing the physical demands required of your job over an extended period of time. These types of workplace injuries are all too common in today’s workforce and are best identified by their symptoms.
Symptoms of a workplace injury can include:
- Lower back pain
- Shoulder pain
- Carpal tunnel and hand pain
- Disc injuries
- Sciatica (pain caused by the sciatic nerve in your lower back and legs)
- Joint pain
Being examined by a chiropractor is often the first step in identifying and treating a workplace injury through non-invasive care which is why Dr. Carroll conducts thorough examinations during his first session with new patients in order to better assess their injury. Since workplace injuries usually develop over time, it’s important to share all the pains and symptoms you may be experiencing so we can identify the root cause.
Once Dr. Carroll identifies the source of your pain, your personalized treatment plan will be tailored to alleviate that discomfort and heal your injury. Our treatment plans are centered on providing one-on-one care that’s tailored to meet each patient’s needs. As a part of your treatment plan, we will also work with your place of employment and insurance company to ensure the proper measures are in place to allow for your full healing and recovery.
If you are suffering from a workplace injury or experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, call us today at (256) 284-7179 to schedule your appointment with Dr. Carroll at the Alabama Chiropractic Spine and Joint Clinic.
