Our Mission Valley, San Diego Chiropractor Can Help Heal Work Injuries
In California last year, there were over 11,000 workers compensation claims filed. If this number included you, then you know the fear and pain that can come with work injuries. At DiSabatino Chiropractic & Rehab, we have dedicated ourselves to providing care from a chiropractor to help our patients feel more comfortable and recover from their injuries throughout the Mission Valley, San Diego area.
Patients who have been injured on the job often face challenges with their musculoskeletal system. Many workers compensation claims arise from injuries resulting from overexertion-- which can cause injuries to muscles and joints, slips, falls or being hit by an object.
If you have been hurt on the job in California, it is important that you report the injury to your supervisor or another in a management position as soon as possible. This is critical, even for gradual injuries. Sometimes an injury might feel like just an annoyance, but later symptoms develop and require treatment. By reporting your injury as soon as it occurs, you can help protect yourself and get started on the compensation claim process. Note that your employer must cover treatment if you are hurt on the job-- even if you do not have to miss work.
The Role of a Chiropractor in the Treatment of Work Injuries
A chiropractor is trained to help patients by carefully evaluating the entire muscle-skeletal system to find the right therapy to treat the work injuries. We will work with each of our patients individually to find the treatment that can help restore their bodies.
We understand that facing a work injury can be a very stressful time for patients. They often worry about the state of their compensation claim, their recovery and the future of their career. We provide a caring and understanding atmosphere to help patients focus on their recovery.
Chiropractic Care Can Help with Workers Compensation Claims
In our chiropractic office, you will receive care specific to your condition. If you have not seen a chiropractor before, the experience may be a little different than what you are used to. Chiropractors work to help the body heal itself after a workers compensation claim. We use techniques such as spinal manipulation and specialized healing massages that help you to feel relief and get started back on the path towards full health. Treatment may also include strength training and electro-therapy depending upon the nature of your exact injury.
During treatment, you will also be taught various exercises that can help you continue treatment at home on your own.
