Common Types of Work Injury and Their Risk Factors

It doesn't matter if you have a physically demanding job or a sedentary job—any occupation carries at least some risk of injury. Common examples of work injury we see at our chiropractic clinic include:

  • Muscle strains: often in the shoulder, back, and leg, damage to muscle fibers can come about due to repetitive chronic strain or during an acute incident
  • Whiplash: a neck pain syndrome caused by forceful flexion and extension of the neck
  • Tech neck: temporary neck soreness and stiffness due to a prolonged flexed posture during technology use
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome: compression of the median nerve leading to numbness and tingling in the first few fingers 
  • Plantar fasciitis: heel pain caused by inflammation of the underside of the foot
  • Sciatica: compression of the sciatic nerve leading to leg pain, numbness, and weakness
  • Chronic back pain: often due to wear and tear related to decades of occupational stress (underlying diagnoses include osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease, and stenosis)

Considering most of us spend 40+ hours per week at work, it's important to be aware of common work injury accident injury risk factors, including:

  • Too much time sitting or standing, especially with poor posture
  • Repetitive movement
  • Frequent bending, lifting, or twisting
  • Stress
  • Accidents (e.g., car accident, personal injury, slip, and fall)
  • Improper use of equipment

How Our Chiropractor in Sarasota Heals Work Injury

Dr. Kuskin has been a chiropractor in Sarasota for several years, and he has extensive clinical experience diagnosing and treating work injury. First, spinal and postural screens (with or without diagnostic imaging) helps us get an idea of your overall postural balance and function. Based on this and other examination components (e.g., physical tests and personal history), we'll implement a unique treatment plan using services such as:

  • Chiropractic adjustments to realign your entire spine and re-invigorate your nervous system for better pain control 
  • Massage therapy to relieve tension throughout the body and promote circulation
  • Corrective exercises to heal tissues, improve strength and endurance, and restore normal pain-free range of motion
  • Lifestyle counseling to improve factors outside of work (e.g., stress management, sleep, nutrition)
  • BrainTap technology to relieve stress and pain
