Work injuries are those that are sustained in the workplace. You might injure yourself while driving a company vehicle, operating machinery, or performing routine tasks.
Work injury treatment is a program of activities that enables you to regain the ability to perform everyday tasks following a work-related injury or trauma. It’s also a vital tool in the management of chronic pain conditions.
The occupational medicine specialists at Liberty HealthCare can restore your independence and make a significant difference in your quality of life.
Some of the patients at Liberty HealthCare who benefit from occupational medicine have conditions, such as:
Physical therapy and chiropractic care is highly adaptable for an occupational injury, so it’s useful for any condition where you're experiencing a reduction in mobility and other physical challenges.
Your chiropractic care plan aims to address the specific issues you’re having problems with, so techniques may vary accordingly. At Liberty HealthCare, the providers use a multidisciplinary approach to treat work-related injuries.
The practitioners specialize in helping people get back to work and improve their employment performance. They may work alongside your occupational therapist, who helps you manage routine tasks like dressing, washing, and preparing meals. Your therapist can also assist you in adapting better to your environment, such as making sure you have ergonomic equipment and tools to help you in your work.
Occupational medicine also improves range of motion, balance, and strength. Some people might require supportive devices like splints to help them continue working. For example, if you have carpal tunnel syndrome, a wrist splint gives you support and encourages healing while enabling you to keep working.
If you’re affected by a workplace injury that’s stopping you from leading a normal life, chiropractic care can transform your life. Your provider at Liberty HealthCare may recommend interventional pain management treatments, massage therapy, physical rehabilitation, or specialist referrals to address your unique needs.
