Work Injuries

The majority of work injuries are not from serious accidents, but from overuse and repetitive stress injuries like lifting, bending, or awkward positions. Occasionally they can be due to ergonomic considerations like a poorly positioned computer monitor causing neck pain.

If you get hurt at work, the first thing you should do is report it to you employer. South Dakota law provides you 72 hours from the time of the injury to report it. State law also provides you the right to choose your doctor. You don’t need a referral or permission to see a chiropractor.

Work Injury in Watertown

Work injuries are a common cause of back and neck pain. Unfortunately, back and neck injuries affect everyone and are not industry specific. In fact, injuries of the human muscular and skeletal frame are the primary reason for claims among workers in South Dakota.

In our 35 years of practice we’ve seen everything from lifting injuries to falls to repetitive injuries to even neck and back pain from poor ergonomics in the workplace.


Chiropractic Care for Work Injuries

Chiropractic is an effective treatment for musculoskeletal injuries, including neck and low back pain. In fact, studies have shown that patients receiving chiropractic care return to work faster and at a less overall cost. As experts of the human frame, chiropractors specialize in spinal care and are the preferred provider for the assessment, diagnosis and management of back pain, injuries and related conditions.

 

Our goal at Deutsch Chiropractic is to work with you and your employer to get you healed and back to your full and normal work duties as fast as possible  . . . and back to all the other things you love to do in life!

Dr. Fred or Dr. Kathleen will perform a thorough evaluation in order to assess your condition and find the exact source. Once the cause of the pain has been determined, they’ll work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan.

The sooner you receive proper care after a work injury, the easier it is to avoid further pain and complications. Call our team at Deutsch Chiropractic Clinic in Watertown to get started on the track to recovery.
