Chiropractic Treatment Patients Miss Less Work

San Angelo Chiropractic Adjustments Helps Lessen Missed Days at Work

Dr. Pittman helps a lot of folks from the San Angelo area who are harmed while working. According to the National Safety Council, the most routine kind of work injury is musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which involves injuries to the muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments and joints. MSDs account for more than one third of all workplace injuries.

The most usual type of MSD is a strain, which is trauma to a muscle or tendon. Strains are caused by lifting, pushing or pulling too much weight, or by engaging in repetitive movements. Other typical MSDs are carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis and back issues.

These injuries can be avoided by using appropriate lifting techniques, taking frequent breaks and using ergonomic tools. Employers can also help avoid injuries by giving their employees educational data on how to avoid getting hurt at work.
