OWCP injuries

Two of the most common injuries in the workplace are lower back injuries and shoulder injuries

Lower back injuries:

  • Disc bulge
  • Sprain/strain
  • Stenosis
  • Facet syndrome
  • Joint dysfunction

Lower back injuries can include repetitive stress injuries, such as prolong sitting or repetitive bending. The lower back is made up of five bones and five discs, if there is repetitive pressure on the disc, this will cause compression in the region putting pressure on the nerves and can cause chronic pain with leg pain. Jobs that include unusual positions, repetitive bending, prolong sitting can irritate the L4 and L5 disc space. Once you have pressure in that region, there is usually less mobility and overtime those areas we can become restricted and immobile. When patient state that they have a hard time getting up and moving in the morning and they feel stiff, the underlying problem is usually a irritated disc form a work injury. The key is to address the underlying cause. Chiropractic combined with rehabilitation therapy and decompression therapy helps increase the disc space, decrease pain and decreased inflammation

Shoulder injuries:

  • Rotator cuff syndrome
  • Biceps tendinitis
  • Sprain strain
  • AC joint dysfunction

When patients suffer from shoulder injuries, it affects every aspect of their life from dressing, getting into the car or just even eating and picking up a cup. These injuries can be debilitating and can affect them for many years. When patients are told there’s nothing that they can do except for painkillers, it can be frustrating. When a patient experiences a work injury involving the shoulder, time is of the essence, you want to mobilize a joint and decrease the inflammation as quickly as you can to avoid future complications. Frozen shoulder is a condition characterized by repetitive injuries overtime causing lack of range of motion that can last for years or forever.

The best treatment plan for shoulder injuries is physical rehabilitation, acupuncture, and joint injections to mobilize a joint. Studies have shown and a team approach is the best plan for avoiding future complications and decreasing pain in the shortest amount of time

The next time you are in a work injury, ask yourself what I need to do to go to the root cause, as opposed to just taking painkillers to get through the day
