Workplace Injury FAQs

Regardless of your job, there is always the risk of experiencing a workplace injury. Everything from a slip and fall at work to becoming injured from a machine on the job can lead to a workers comp claim. After being injured at work, it is best to inform your supervisor and seek medical treatment immediately.

Seeing a chiropractor after a workplace injury can help reduce pain and improve your healing process. Our chiropractors at Discover Integrated Health in Kennesaw and Marietta have extensive experience in treating workplace injuries.

What can cause a workplace injury?

Workplace injuries can happen at any time, at any place of work. However, some workplaces are at greater risk of incurring damages due to low safety standards and the type of job. Some of the most common workplace injuries may include heavy lifting, stress, poor ergonomics, negative motions, falling objects, overexertion, and slip and falls.

What are the most common workers comp claims?

Workers comp is an insurance plan typically taken out by employers to protect themselves and their employees from workplace accidents and injuries. Typical workers comp claims include treatment for muscle strains, sprains, whiplash, broken bones, herniated discs, and dislocated shoulders.

Other workers comp claims may consist of therapy for damages from carpal tunnel syndrome, spinal misalignments, concussions, and frozen shoulder. If you are unsure if your injury qualifies as a workers comp injury, speak with a chiropractor for a diagnosis.

How can a chiropractor help with a workplace injury?

A chiropractor can provide an alternative treatment for workplace injuries, helping you find relief from pain and start healing. Additionally, a chiropractor can document your workplace injury, monitor its progress, and submit a report to the workers’ compensation insurance company for your compensation.

The treatment used by a chiropractor can boost your body’s natural healing abilities and provide pain relief. Typical chiropractic treatment methods include massage therapy, spinal adjustments, and even acupuncture.
