At Grant Chiropractic Life Center, P.C., we see a variety of injuries. The most common one being, musculoskeletal sprains and strains. Chiropractic provides effective non surgical care for musculoskeletal injuries, such as back injuries, lifting, twisting and movement injuries, and repetitive strain injuries. Many problems contribute to musculoskeletal injuries. The most common are:
- Frequent or heavy lifting
- Pushing, pulling, or carrying of heavy objects
- Prolonged awkward postures
- Repetitive, forceful, or prolonged exertions
Jobs or working conditions that combine the above risk factors will increase the risk for musculoskeletal problems. Lately we have seen a number of patients with injuries related to data entry or extended computer work. The level of risk depends on how long a worker is exposed to these conditions, how often they are exposed, and the level of exposure.
