Common Types of Work-related Injuries

 You could injure your back and possibly strain or sprain soft tissue. It's possible for you to slip or rupture a disc from falling. You could even hurt the sensitive discs in your back from lifting something improperly. Another common back injury occurs when damage nerves. 

Not all work-related injuries happen as a result of injuries. In many cases, the injury happens over time from repetitive strain such as performing the same tasks over and over again. On the other hand, even sitting for prolonged periods of time can cause both neck and back issues. 

How We Diagnose the Problem 

In order to diagnose the problem, we start by gathering a thorough medical history. That allows us to determine the cause of the problem in terms of your work and lifestyle. We also take into consideration any medical problems you have that could contribute to the problem. Additionally, we conduct a physical to determine the problem.

At this point, our chiropractor may perform some type of imaging on your in order to look inside of your body and determine any issues.

How Our Chiropractor Treats the Problem

Our workers comp chiropractor may treat the problem using a chiropractic adjustment. This particular treatment consists of our chiropractor realigning the vertebrae in your back in order to take pressure off of the surrounding tissue and joints. The alignment also promotes blood flow throughout the area, so the injured area receives all the nutrition it needs to heal. 

A workman's compensation chiropractor might recommend exercise therapy, which is a treatment where the chiropractor guides you through a series of exercises that gently stretches the injured area. This promotes blood flow and increases function and flexion of the region as well. 

Another treatment our chiropractor may utilize is spinal decompression, a treatment where you lie and a table connected to pulleys and other rigging. It slowly and gently stretches your spine to allow your discs room to heal. By taking pressure off of the spine, nutrients reach the area more optimally as well. Our chiropractor might recommend lifestyle changes to help also.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I've been going to Dr. Yewchuck for many years. He's always been able to get my stubborn neck and back aligned every time when other Chiropractors can't. I would trust Dr. James any time when it comes to my Chiropractic needs. He adjusted my neck 2 days after having surgery and was very careful getting me on and off the adjustment table. I now live in the Rogue Valley and anytime I'm in Klamath Falls and need an adjustment his office staff always gets me in within minutes of going to the office. Dr. James and his staff are very professional and caring about your individual needs. Can't wait to use his new equipment! I would recommend Advance Chiropractor to anyone."

  • "I don't know where I'd be if it hadn't been for James and his staff.....After a fatal MVA, he was able to find the injuries that neither the ER nor our doctor could at the time. He efficiently and effectively planned a course of action that got me back on the path of recovery. He's compassionate...he has knowledgeable, professional, and friendly staff. I'm proud to know him and the gals in his office.... He can certainly help you...I have no doubts about that."
