Ouch! Getting injured on the job is an inconvenient and awful situation. Even if you are following all safety guidelines and taking the necessary precautions, accidents can happen when you least expect them. If a work injury occurs, rest assured that chiropractic care is a proven, holistic treatment option. Dr. Viktorija Joga of Joga Chiropractic Center, which serves the Westchester and Los Angeles areas, uses safe and effective chiropractic care that will help get you back to work in no time.
The injuries that a person may face depends largely on the type of work that they do. Construction workers or those who have very physical jobs are more susceptible to overexertion injuries. These occur when lifting incorrectly, pushing and pulling heavy loads or throwing items. Slipping or tripping on wet floors or over objects on the ground is common in restaurant-type jobs.
Other injuries include falling from heights, like ladders or roofs, walking-into injuries or getting hit by falling objects. In an office-type environment, many people suffer from repetitive motion injuries. These problems can be caused by excessive typing or heavy computer use and can cause issues like strained muscles and back or neck pain. Work or accident injuries may result in migraines, chronic back or neck aches, strains, sprains and more.
Working with an experienced chiropractor, like Dr. Joga, can help quickly and safely alleviate your workplace injuries. Chiropractors use hands-on physical manipulations in order to increase blood flow and circulation to the injured area, which helps it heal faster. Focusing on the spine and nervous system, chiropractors pay special attention to aligning the spinal area, which helps the entire body function better.
With the help of holistic, chiropractic care, patients can restore mobility and range of motion in affected areas, like the back, shoulders, neck or knees. Dr. Joga regularly treats work injuries like disc herniations, sciatica, pinched nerves, and whiplash.
Dr. Joga works with a variety of patients, including athletes, pregnant women and those suffering from work or accident-related injuries. She believes in a whole-person approach to her practice, in which she strives to treat the underlying issues instead of masking the symptoms. After a physical examination and discussion, Dr. Joga formulates a plan based on the individual’s specific needs and goals. In addition to chiropractic care, she utilizes massage therapy, the Rocktape technique, the Graston technique and may advise patients to perform corrective exercises at home, designed to strengthen and rehabilitate the body.
