Our Clayton Chiropractor Helps Hard-Work North Carolinians Stay Healthy on the Job
According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), work-related musculoskeletal injuries account for about 34% of all annual missed work days. Our Clayton chiropractor, Dr. Karel Lloyd, is determined to help make a small dent in that number by helping his hard-working patients recover from and PREVENT common work injuries.
Common Types of Work Injury
An injury on the job can occur whether you have a sedentary career or a physically demanding one. Common ones like carpal tunnel syndrome (median nerve compression in the wrist), tech neck (neck pain due to slouching over a computer or smartphone), and sciatica (sciatic nerve compression in the low back), can pop up due to issues like:
- Excessive time spent sitting
- Poor ergonomics (environmental set up of your workspace, including your desk, computer, and keyboard)
- Impaired core strength, endurance, and coordination
- Improper lifting techniques (e.g., bending with the back, twisting the spine while carrying heavy loads, not using appropriate tools or helping hands)
- Slips, trips, and falls
How Our Chiropractor Can Alleviate Your Pain & Dysfunction Caused by a Work Injury
Nagging aches and pains on the job can impair your productivity and work satisfaction. Seek natural and drug-free help to get relief quickly! Our chiropractor offers a variety of services that can get to the root of your work-related injury while at the same time providing drug-free pain relief:
- Postural screens and lifestyle counseling: Dr. Lloyd can help you understand how you're positioning yourself at work and how you can improve your workspace set-up (ergonomics) so that you can perform your work tasks more efficiently and effectively.
- Chiropractic adjustments (both manual and instrument-assisted) gently realign your spine (key for conditions like tech neck and chronic low back pain) and trigger natural pain relief by releasing innate pain-killers within the body. We provide both spinal and extremity adjustments for conditions affecting the back and limbs.
- Modalities including rock tape can increase local circulation to sore and strained muscles and accelerate tissue healing
- Exercises to improve core strength and endurance, as well as shoulder and hip flexibility, can keep you healthier on and off the clock
