Work Accidents

Regardless of how strenuous or non-strenuous your work may seem, your job can take a toll on your body. Work which is highly physical and demanding can leave you sore and in some cases even injured. Few people realize that work which does not appear to be overly physical can also cause injuries as well. Any time you are repeatedly making your body perform the same movements over and over, you can risk injury. When you get hurt at work, not only will you be distracted by the injury and the pain, but it could also affect your income if it forces you to miss time at work. At Molstad Chiropractic Clinic, serving Sioux City, IA, we understand how crucial it is to remain healthy so that you can continue to work and live a normal life.


Common Work Injuries

Workplace injuries are frustrating on several levels. There is of course the pain you are experiencing, but you may also be frustrated because of the effect the incident can have on your job. Some of the most common workplace injuries include:

  • Back Pain
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Nerve Damage
  • Headaches
  • Sprains

In some instances, more serious workplace injuries can also occur.

Uncovering Work Accidents

In some cases, it is very clear that an injury is a result of work. In other cases, though, it may not be so obvious.  Dr. Tom Molstad can help you figure out if you are dealing with a workplace injury. It is important to make this distinction as it could affect your ability to work as well as any benefits you could be entitled to because of the nature of a workplace injury.

A chiropractor can evaluate the type of work you do, any repetitive tasks that you are required to do on a daily or weekly basis, as well as your overall health and well-being to pinpoint the cause of your injury. X-rays or MRIs may also be used during the diagnostic part of your exam.

How Dr. Tom Molstad Can Help

Once a diagnosis is made, your chiropractor can develop a specialized treatment plan for you. This plan will take into account your medical history and overall health to make sure the methods and therapies being used are appropriate for you.

There are many treatment options available to you. Spinal manipulation, hot and cold therapy, massage therapy, laser therapy as well as stress reduction, and lifestyle counseling can all be used to help address your injury and assist with your recovery.
