If you’ve been hurt on the job, we can understand why you just want to get healthy and back to work as soon as possible.

Our chiropractor staff at Blue Grass Chiro is dedicated to offering the most innovative and holistic techniques to help your body heal.

Common Types & Causes of Work Injury

A workplace injury can occur following an acute and sudden accident like a fall or car crash. In other cases, work injury may come on gradually; in these cases, it’s often the result of several underlying risk factors, including:

  • Poor posture 
  • Poor body mechanics and techniques while lifting and performing other physical tasks
  • Poor ergonomics
  • Excessive sitting and/or standing
  • Overuse/repetitive movement (especially when involving frequent bending, lifting, twisting, or performing overhead tasks)
  • Additional lifestyle factors (smoking, stress, nutrition, and overweight/obesity)

At our chiropractic office, our team frequently diagnoses and treats subluxations, which may help with the conditions listed below.

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome: compression of the median nerve (can cause numbness and pain in the first few fingers)
  • Sciatica: compression of the sciatic nerve (can cause numbness and pain in a leg)
  • Tech neck: stiff, sore, achy neck from frequently flexing forward 
  • Disc herniation or bulge: spinal disc damage (may cause nerve compression and back stiffness)
  • Chronic low back pain: often due to muscle strain, ligament sprain, disc injury, or simply increased pressure on the spine from sitting or heavy lifting
  • Plantar fasciitis: inflammation of the bottom of the foot (can cause sharp heel pain)
  • Tendonitis: inflammation of a tendon 

How Chiropractic Care Services Can Heal Your Work Injury

Our services can all be customized to meet your specific needs and help you get back to work as soon as possible:

  • Chiropractic adjustments: joint mobilizations and manipulations realign the spine, trigger widespread pain relief, and reduce pressure on chronically stressed discs, nerves, and joints
  • Corrective exercises: we teach exercises to improve core stability and strength, heal injured tissues, and maximize endurance and range of motion to prepare for a long day at work
  • Patient education: we teach people how to set up their desk and improve posture, body mechanics, lifting techniques, and work habits to prevent recurring strain and tension
