How can chiropractic care help your work-related injury?
Were you injured at work? Who offers the best chiropractic care for work injuries? Any kind of repetitive task at work can result in musculoskeletal tension, dysfunction, and pain. Whether it is lifting a heavy box, slipping on the floor, or a repetitive task such as typing, work injuries can progress and worsen without proper treatment. This lack of treatment can lead to irreversible permanent damage. This is why it is very important to have a qualified Doctor of Chiropractic evaluate your work-related injuries.
If you were hurt at work, always report the injury and what happened to your boss. After you fill out the worker’s compensation paperwork, call our office to make an appointment for a chiropractic work injury evaluation.

He will perform a detailed history with you about the accident, then an examination to determine the extent of your injuries and decide which type of chiropractic treatment plan is appropriate for your condition.

We recommend making an appointment with Dr. Allen Conrad as soon as the work injury occurs, so that he can inform you about your options, and determine what the next step of care would be for your work-related injury.

After the chiropractic history and examination, Dr. Conrad will review your treatment options. Each case is specific, but many spine related injuries will include gentle chiropractic adjustments, electrical muscle stimulation, mechanical traction, therapeutic ultrasound, therapeutic exercise, therapeutic stretching, massage therapy, and self-home management exercises. Different levels of severity may affect the type of work injury treatment you receive, so after the examination the Doctor of Chiropractic will review these options, and determine which type of treatment is appropriate for you.
Can the Doctor of Chiropractic order Diagnostic Testing?
Yes, Dr. Conrad can order diagnostic testing for your work-related injuries. If you have already had some diagnostic testing done like MRI or X-Rays, Dr. Conrad will review the results with you so that you understand your injury and the options of treatment for that condition. We believe that reviewing the diagnostic results with the patient helps the patient become more aware of their injury, and also answer any questions that they may have about what to expect and what to avoid to make sure they don’t reinjure themselves.
