Did you get injured at work?
Impact injury Center has a specific chiropractic care process for workers’ compensation injuries to give you the best care during each phase of the healing process.
Let’s get started.
The initial 6-12 weeks after an on-the-job injury is the ideal time to get your muscles, joints, and spine treated in order to reduce or eliminate the chances of long-term, chronic pain. Workplace injuries are often rather debilitating, preventing you from not only carrying out their job duties, but also severely limiting your ability to go about your normal recreational and daily living activities. So don’t wait, give us a call and start feeling better today!
Why am I in pain?
Some people experience pain, soreness, stiffness, and other symptoms immediately after an on-the-job injury, while others do not experience symptoms until one or a couple days after the initial incident.
This is similar to when you go to the gym and exercise for the first time in months, but do not experience the intense soreness until one or two days later. In the gym, it is called DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness); in a work injury, it is due to the injured tissue going through the inflammatory phase of the remodeling process. At this point, your brain and body are still trying to process the pain and upstart your recovery cascade.
