Chiropractic Therapy Gets You Back to Work Faster

Yakima Chiropractic Care Helps Reduce Missed Days at Work

Dr. Covington sees a lot of people from the Yakima area that are injured at work. According to the National Safety Council, the most frequent kind of work injury is musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which involves trauma to the muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments and joints. MSDs account for more than one third of all workplace injuries.

The most frequent type of MSD is a strain, which is an injury to a muscle or tendon. Strains are caused by lifting, pushing or pulling too much weight, or by repetitive movements. Other common MSDs include carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis and back issues.

These injuries can be stopped by using appropriate lifting techniques, taking many breaks and using ergonomic devices. Employers can also help put a stop to injuries by providing their employees educational materials on preventing getting hurt on the job.
