If you work in a high-stress environment like construction, factory work, or any job where your body is subject to stress and strain every day, you may already be aware of the dangers of work related injuries. Did you know that even if you sit down and work at a desk all day, or work on your feet, you are still at risk?

A Marshall Chiropractic, we offer services to help alleviate the aches and pains that come from work, and give preventative care to ensure your problem doesn’t worsen.

Your job could be harming your body

If your job is causing you aches and pains, chiropractors help you maintain a healthy body.

Even if you work at a desk all day, there is still a risk of neck and back pain as well as nerve damage depending on the posture and habits you have at work. Standing too long hurts your body, as any hairstylist or restaurant server tells you. Manual labor jobs have extra high instances of work related injury, some injuries being very long term in nature. 

Chiropractors help restore the body to tip top shape after these types of injuries by adjusting the joints and muscles that were injured or providing preventative care to avoid injuries in the first place.

Even more benefits

Some people are hesitant to go to the chiropractor because they are scared they might find something else wrong with them, but if that is the case, it is all the more reason to visit!

Chiropractors use a variety of treatment techniques such as spinal manipulation (or "adjustments"), decompression therapy (in which pressure is applied through stretching), physical therapy exercises and massage therapy; all aimed at improving mobility so you move more comfortably without pain when working or doing everyday activities. Some of those adjustments often knock off a few cobwebs and result in an overall healthier body.

For example, if you went in with neck pain because of an injury from work but during treatment the doctor found that one of your shoulders was out too far and needed adjusting, then it was worth it! Chances are good that fixing your shoulder helps relieve some or all of your neck pain as well.

Preventative care

If you have a job that requires specific and repetitive motions or postures, it is extremely important to seek preventative care from a chiropractor. Having heavily used parts of your body worked on by a chiropractor can greatly decrease your chances of getting injured or needing surgeries in the future.

Chiropractors also provide preventative care for those who don't have jobs that require heavy use of their bodies but still suffer from chronic pain because of age or injuries sustained earlier in life. In fact, there are many people who visit chiropractors after having an injury that affects them every day because they don't want things to get worse as they get older!

Preventative treatments include adjustments (spinal manipulations), soft tissue work such as massage therapy and trigger point injections when necessary. These treatments help keep muscles loose so they aren't tight enough for nerve irritation causing pain at any given time throughout each day/weekend/year etc..
