When Should I Get Treatment for a Work-related Injury?
You should seek medical treatment for a workplace injury as soon as possible.
Getting early treatment, usually, means a quicker recovery.

What Should I Tell My Chiropractor About My Work Injury?
As with any doctor visit, you should tell your Chiropractor every detail about your injury.
You need to be honest and accurate when describing what pain you are having, where it is, how often, and how painful.
Medical professionals still rely on patients to report on any symptoms they are having and what difficulties they are experiencing.
Some injuries, like soft tissue damage, can be more subjective than others, which means it is even more crucial for you to communicate honestly about your pain.
Even if you think that some of the symptoms you are experiencing are minor, let your Chiropractor know about it.
Sometimes a seemingly harmless symptom can turn into something significant in a few weeks' time.
It is also important to remember that you should not speculate answers about questions you are unsure about.
If you are asked a question during your medical exam that you do not know, say exactly that.
Arrowhead Clinics will properly document your injuries and provide a detailed employer's report.
The Detailed Employer's Report includes the following:
- Date and time of each visit (this includes arrival and departure times)
- Indications of any "no show" appointments
- Diagnosis of injury
- Modified duties
- Estimated return to work/normal duties date
- Any additional referrals needed/requested
Manual Chiropractic Therapy Treatments
Aside from the Worker Compensation Treatments we offer, you may receive other manual chiropractic treatments to treat your work injury.
A few of the Manual Chiropractic Therapies you may have are:
- Instrument-assisted soft tissue therapy uses special stainless steel instruments designed specifically to diagnose and treat muscle tension.
- Manual joint stretching and resistance techniques can help to reduce any neck pain (or other similar symptoms) you may be experiencing.
- Therapeutic massages can help to relax tensed or strained muscles and alleviate pain.
- Trigger point therapy is a manual chiropractic therapy used to relieve tight, painful points on an irritated muscle.
- Interferential electrical stimulation uses a low-frequency electrical current to stimulate neck muscles.
- An ultrasound sends sound waves into your muscle tissues to help reduce pain and stiffness in your neck and back.
In addition to manual therapies, therapeutic exercises may be recommended.
These exercises can help to improve the overall range of motion in your neck and prevent neck pain from progressing.
All of the treatments available are examples of possible chiropractic treatments for neck pain; your actual treatment plan will depend on your diagnosis.
During your Free Consultation, your Chiropractor should thoroughly explain your potential treatment options so that you know what to expect down the road.
