Are Repetitive Tasks Causing You Pain?

If you repeatedly use the same part of your body over and over in your work, you may develop strain. Computer operators, typists and musicians sometimes develop pain in their wrists, fingers or hands.

The strain may also be experienced as numbness and tingling sensations in joints, or as neck pain. The medical name for this condition is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). CTS can easily be diagnosed and treated.

Common Statistics Show:

  • Industrial injuries result in injury to a worker, both physically and financially.
  • Back pain is responsible for more loss of work time and increased medical expenses related to treatment than any other ailment.
  • Neck and back damage account for more that 90% of work injuries.
  • Chiropractic gets injured workers out of pain and back to work fast; with lower treatment costs compared to other forms of treatments.

How common are work related injuries?

Musculoskeletal disorders of any cause are among the most prevalent medical problems, affecting 7% of the population and accounting for 14% of physical visits and 19% of hospital stays. When looking specifically at cases involving days away from work, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that in 1994, approximately 32% of all illness cases were the result of overexertion or repetitive motion. This figure includes back injuries.

Our Methods


  • 1.

    Heat

    Heat therapy works by stimulating your body’s own healing force. For instance, heat dilates the blood vessels, stimulates blood circulation, and reduces muscle spasms. In addition, heat alters the sensation of pain.

  • 2.

    Cold

    Reduces swelling by constricting blood vessels. While cold packs may be uncomfortable at first, they can numb deep pain.

  • 4.

    Ultrasound

    Therapeutic Ultrasound is a method of stimulating tissue beneath the skin’s surface using sound waves. It is a very high frequency massage that can penetrate up to 5″ below the surface of your skin.

  • 5.

    Exercise

    This may include stretching, core exercises, weight lifting, and walking. Your Chiropractor may teach you an exercise program so you can do it at home.
