Chiropractor and Denied Workers’ Compensation Claim

Construction Accident Lawyer

Sustaining a workplace injury can severely impact your life. You may think a casual slip and fall on a wet surface is not a big deal, or even the carpal tunnel you have been developing in your wrist will go away. However, when you do not deal with these injuries medically soon after they happen, you may find that when you go to file a legal claim your workers’ compensation is denied. Before giving insurance (or your boss) the chance to deny your workers’ compensation claim, though, work with the chiropractors to ensure you have the proper diagnosis and treatment plan for your workplace injuries. It is important to get this type of medical attention as soon as possible after an accident, so call an office to see how they can help you today.

What are common workplace injuries?

There are many common injuries an employee can sustain at their job. Depending on the line of work that you are in, you will be more prone to certain injuries than you would to others.

  1. Back/Neck Strain. This can be the result of sitting at a desk for 8 hours every day, or it could be from lifting, pulling, and pushing heavy loads at your job. In addition to coming up with a treatment plan for your back or neck pain, we can also show you better positions to help with your posture.
  2. Tendonitis. When you overuse different areas of your body like your knee, your shoulder, or your wrist, you may develop tendonitis.
  3. Pinched Nerves. Especially when you have a job that requires heavy lifting or pulling, you may pinch nerves in your body. When this happens, you can experience numbness and pain in different areas of your body.
  4. Muscle Strain. When you pull or stretch your muscles farther than they were meant to go, it can cause weakness and pain in those areas. Our chiropractors can help ease the pain and begin healing these muscles with different techniques.
