Work Related Injuries
San Diego is not immune from work related injuries and they can limit or end your ability to perform your usual occupation. Over my 20 plus years of being a practicing chiropractor in San Diego, I have seen that work related injuries can last either a few days or over the remainder of your life. Either way, their affects are far-reaching. Work related injuries can result in permanent disability. Often, they result in financial losses: work related injuries can require costly medical treatment and recuperation time may mean lost wages.
Work related injuries are any injuries or illnesses that result from the employee's required job duties. Work related injuries can happen at any mandatory event or location, or whenever the employee is being paid.
Those who suffer work related injuries should report them as soon as possible to their employer using the proper forms. Work related injuries should also be investigated by a physician, as medical evidence for claims of work related injuries is generally required in the form of a physician's statement.
The vast majority of work related injuries that Chiropractic can be effective in treating brake down into 3 catagories:
Safe Lifting Makes Sense
Safe lifting techniques keep your back in balance and can protect you and your back from accidental strain and overload. It makes sense -- to keep your back working smoothly and problem-free, lift correctly.
1. Visualize the Lift
2. Tuck Your Pelvis
3. Bend Your Knees
4. "Hug" The Load Try to hold the object you're lifting as close to your body as possible, as you gradually straighten your legs to a standing position. Remember, the key is to lift with your legs NOT your back. Safe lifting is easy to learn, simple to do, and may be one of the most important skills you'll ever learn.
5. Avoid Twisting
To avoid twisting, be sure that your knees and torso are moving in the same direction when lifting.
