How Can Chiropractic Care Help?
A chiropractor can help with you during your recovery from a workplace injury. We can help with numbness of the hands, back pain, neck strain, carpal tunnel, and other medical conditions that often result from workplace injuries. We can help with migraines and tendon inflammation too.
A chiropractor focuses on decreasing your pain, aligning the spine, and helping the body to heal naturally. Aligning the spine can reduce inflammation, irritation, and pressure on your nerves. Once the musculoskeletal system is properly aligned, the joints function better and muscles heal faster which can relieve pain in your neck and back. This can also relieve pain caused by migraines and carpal tunnel syndrome.
