REPETITIVE STRESS INJURIES
Stop chronic work-related pain in its tracks
Regardless of the nature of your job, you have repetitive actions that you repeat every day. Office jobs are the best example of repetitive motions or actions, like sitting and typing. Office workers are prone to chronic or repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, as well as neck and shoulder pain.
Repetitive actions ultimately result in wear and tear. Everyone from office workers to construction workers may experience strain from everyday actions when they are repeated nonstop. Repetitive actions can weaken your joints and muscles, making you more susceptible to pain, inflammation, and injury.
Chronic work-related injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, are not usually covered by workers’ compensation insurance. However, our office accepts most medical insurances and your treatment may be partially or fully covered. You can learn more about how we work with your insurance over on our Insurance Page.
In addition to workplace injury treatment, our team also provides preventative treatment to strengthen muscles, protect joints, and alleviate tension in tendons and nerves. Our injury prevention treatments include at-home exercises, posture adjustments, and other proactive techniques that help you reduce the risk of future problems and support recovery from any current injuries.
