Work-related injuries are a common occurrence and can vary significantly in their nature and severity. At Oak Health, we specialize in treating a wide range of work injuries, primarily using Chiropractic Care, which includes spinal rehabilitation and extremity treatments. These injuries can result from various workplace activities, such as slips, trips, falls, repetitive movements, or overexertion. Our approach is to provide comprehensive care that not only addresses the immediate pain and discomfort but also focuses on the underlying causes of the injury to prevent recurrence.

Common Symptoms & General Care
Recognizing the symptoms of work-related injuries and understanding how to care for them are crucial for prompt treatment and effective recovery. While symptoms can vary depending on the specific injury, some common signs include:
- Pain, swelling, or stiffness in the affected area, common in muscle strains, joint injuries, and conditions like tendonitis.
- Difficulty performing certain movements or tasks that were previously easy, indicating potential musculoskeletal issues.
- Numbness, tingling, or weakness, particularly in the hands or feet, often seen in repetitive strain injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome.
- Chronic headaches or neck tension, which can be a sign of stress-related issues or poor ergonomic practices.
- Persistent lower back pain, especially after activities like lifting or prolonged sitting.
General care and preventative measures for work injuries often involve a combination of self-care and professional treatment. Here are some general guidelines:
- Proper Ergonomics: Setting up a workstation that supports natural posture and reduces strain is crucial in preventing and managing work injuries.
- Regular Breaks and Movement: Taking regular breaks and changing positions can help reduce the risk of repetitive strain injuries and other work-related issues.
- Exercise and Stretching: Regular physical activity and stretching can strengthen muscles, improve flexibility, and reduce the risk of injuries.
- Use of Protective Gear: In certain jobs, using appropriate protective gear can be essential in preventing injuries.
- Stress Management: Techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, or yoga can help manage stress, which often contributes to tension-related injuries.
