Suffering From A Slips, Trips, and Falls

Common workplace injuries happen due to a slip, trip, or fall. These injuries can have very minor impairments like bruises or scraps. Sometimes accidents at work can get really nasty and end up with broken bones, cuts, or sprains. Injuries like this may sound minor but still cause a lot of pain if something else in the body has shifted causing a secondary problem. We do a full assessment from head to toe to make sure all pain points are evaluated.

Heavy Machinery Causes Many Serious Accidents at Work

Another big cause of workplace injuries are from heavy machinery. These massive equipment are pretty dangerous by themselves, but coupled with machinery missing its protective guards and you have an almost deadly workplace. There is already an insanely long list of accidents including heavy machinery that have taken arms, fingers, and even eyes. While we try to do our part to have a safe environment at work, machines can fail and accidents happen. No matter what your accident was, you are not alone in your recovery.

Repetitive Stress and Overexertion

Why Stressful Work Environments Cause More Injuries

In extreme cases of massive stress brought on by a work environment can permanently inhibit a worker from doing their job. Since stress can impair judgment, it can cause injuries. Improper lifting of objects, repetitive tasks, and the inability to take a break can cause injury without even knowing it. This can start to wear down the body and cause problems with muscles, tendons, and even your back. A stressed mind can put a strain on the body, get it back with our treatment plan!

How We Can Help Speed Up Your Recovery

MAT or Muscle Activation Technique is very helpful when it comes to recovering from injuries. A lot of therapies will have you get a painful or tense area massaged, but this can make things much worse. This will remove the natural protection the body has put there to protect the real problem which can even injure the area further. MAT treatment focuses on treating the real problem first, which will then let the area remove its natural protection over time without the risk of more injury. Reducing pain and giving the injury opportunity to recover faster.
