Acute Vs. Chronic Injuries

Not all workers' compensation injuries are due to a slip and fall or an acute injury. Injuries can develop over time and create chronic issues. This is seen with repetitive job duties so don't be afraid to talk with your employer and let them know your concerns. This is a chance for them to reassess your duties and see how they can make it safer for you and their other employees. More than likely you are not the only one having the same concerns so speak up.

Acute Injuries

The body's response to an acute injury causes tightening of muscles, swelling, stiffness, and pain. These stagnations need to be moved in order for the body to regain optimal health. Acupuncture and chiropractic free up these blockages and releases the tight muscles and trigger points so the body's energy can flow freely, promoting healing and recovery.

Chronic Injuries

Over time, injuries that are left untreated begin to break down the bodies energy levels and usually lead to worse injuries or additional injuries in surrounding areas. As the body's internal recovery system is weakened, it exposes the entire body to potential injury. Chiropractic and acupuncture helps enable the body to heal and build qi (energy) levels, allowing the natural healing systems of the body to maximize recovery.
