Hey everyone, my name is Dr. Saias and I’m the clinical director here at PA Pain and Rehab, your chiropractic for work injuries in Philadelphia, PA. In this video I want to talk to you about work related injuries and why it’s a great idea to see a chiropractor first, if you’ve been injured at work, especially if you have an opportunity.
Work Injury Assessment in Philadelphia, PA
Oftentimes when you’re injured at work, you have to see a medical doctor. And that medical doctor is going to do an evaluation. They may pull you out of work. They may make accommodations for you at work so you don’t keep re-injuring yourself.
But most of the time they’re going to prescribe you medication to help relieve your symptoms. And they may prescribe a muscle relaxer. But at the end of the day, medications don’t fix problems associated with a physical type of injury.
So if you injured your low back, lifting something at work, or if you’re doing the same repetitive movement over and over all day long. And you damage the spine and you damage the soft tissue. As a result of that, there is no medication that’s going to fix that.
And if you don’t fix it in a timely manner, it’s gonna be harder to get back to work and it’s going to potentially cause chronic long term problems down the road.
