Worker’s Compensation, sometimes referred to as “Workman’s Compensation” or “Worker’s Comp”, is the name given to a system of laws meant to protect injured workers. The goal is to make sure that somebody who is injured at work receives appropriate medical care, lost wages relating to the on-the-job injury, and, if necessary, retraining and rehabilitation, so as to be able to return to the workforce.
The chiropractors at Emerald Coast Chiropractic are expertly trained to diagnose and treat the many musculoskeletal injuries that may occur on the job. Statistics indicate that the amount of suffering, time lost from work and cost of treatment are all significantly reduced when injured person receives chiropractic care.
Upon a worker’s comp injury, the individual often alters the normal position or flexibility of the spinal vertebrae. Chiropractic treatment is designed to restore normal alignment and thus minimize pain and suffering. Gentile manipulative therapy or “adjustment” is often effective in rapidly returning the injured person to a productive status.
They can also provide guidance with advice designed to reduce work-related injuries. The proper lifting procedures and the therapeutic stretching exercises he can suggest may prove helpful in preventing future injuries
As mentioned, a lot of people suffer when someone is hurt on the job. Chiropractic care has been shown to be effective in relieving pain and suffering for the injured worker quickly and easily; getting him or her back on the job sooner; reducing productivity lost to the employer; and cutting down on the overall cost of treatment.
