Folks with physically demanding jobs--including firefighters, EMTs, and construction workers--as well as anyone who operates heavy machinery are at the highest risk for obtaining a work-related injury. Additionally, virtually everyone either drives or spends time in a motor vehicle--which means that all of us are at risk of an auto accident injury.
The way a person gets hurt on the job or in a car are sometimes pretty similar. The sudden and forceful stop and change in direction (such as during a rear-end impact or during a trip or fall) can cause whiplash, which is a condition hallmarked by neck pain, stiffness, TMJ dysfunction, and headaches. Other common auto and work-related accidents may include spinal disc herniation, muscle strain, or tendonitis (often due to overuse or repetitive movement).
If you've been hurt at work or in a car accident, you should consult with a chiropractor as soon as possible! Even if you "feel fine," there could be an underlying inflammation or injury that just hasn't developed symptoms yet. Early treatment by a chiropractor can minimize the severity of the injury, accelerate your recovery time, and reduce the risk of long-term complications.
Dr. Atzmon combines a variety of drug-free and non-invasive approaches that promote whole-body healing as you recover from your injury. These approaches may include spinal adjustments, spinal decompression, soft tissue mobilization, corrective exercises, and modalities including ultrasound and cryotherapy (ice or heat).
Even if you don't have a physically demanding job, you still may be at risk for a work-related injury. This is especially true if you sit a lot at work and your posture and ergonomics are not ideal. Excessive and prolonged time spent sitting with improper body mechanics can be just as potentially harmful as moving or lifting heavy objects with improper body mechanics. Dr. Atzmon can help all workers--from first responders to office employees--improve their posture, movement quality, and functional strength and endurance in order to prevent injuries on the job. He's even invented several ergonomic keyboards, mice, and other devices to help workers function more safely and more efficiently.
