Palmdale work-related injuries can have a serious impact on your health and wellbeing. Not only can a work injury prevent you from continuing to do your job, but work-related injuries can also affect your ability to live a full, active life. You do not need to work a dangerous job like construction to suffer as injury on the job. Everything from an accidental slip on a wet break room floor to carpal tunnel syndrome are common work-related injuries amongst office workers. If you are suffering from chronic or acute pain due to a Palmdale work injury, the Dewald Chiropractic team is here to help.
Treat Palmdale Work-Related Injuries with Chiropractic Care
At Dewald Chiropractic, we follow a non-invasive, drug-free approach to treating work-related injuries. Whether you are suffering from back pain, neck pain, wrist pain or other chronic pain, we focus specifically on treating the underlying cause for this pain. Hands-on chiropractic adjustments restore proper alignment to the spine, supporting whole body health from the inside out.
Chronic back pain is one of the most common Palmdale work injury problems. Everything from an accidental slip and fall to poor posture can lead to back pain problems. If your back pain is related to a slip and fall, you may have a herniated or slipped disc in your spine. Depending on the location of this disc, when it compresses nearby nerves, the disc will trigger pain. Chiropractic adjustments manage this pain by alleviating pressure on the nerves, which in turn reduces pain signals.
If your pain is related to poor posture, simple ergonomic enhancements can make a significant difference. When the lumbar spine is compressed, this strains the muscles in the lower back. Our chiropractor may recommend adjusting the height of your office chair and repositioning the location of your keyboard and monitor. Core strengthening exercises and corrective care exercises are also beneficial for improving posture.
If you have carpal tunnel pain, chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy are two effective alternatives to traditional surgery. Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) occurs when swelling in the wrist compresses the median nerve channel, causing pain. Physiotherapy can help alleviate this swelling without the need for medication or invasive surgery.
Without effective treatment, a Palmdale work injury can lead to years of recurring pain. Unfortunately, medication is only able to offer limited relief. Drugs work by numbing your brain’s ability to perceive pain. This means that once the medication wears off, the pain will return – sometimes even stronger than before. Chiropractic care is different. By identifying the underlying misalignment that is responsible for your work related injury pain, our chiropractor Dr. Dewald can help manage this pain without the need for medication.
Chiropractic care is more than just a way to relieve pain – it is part of a total body experience for enhanced wellness. To learn more about how we treat Palmdale work related injuries, schedule an appointment with Dr. Dewald today: call 661-266-3500.
