Workers Compensation

Suffering from an injury you sustained at work? Dr. Mark Cafagna and his team in San Marcos, CA, offer personalized, effective care to help you heal from your workers comp injury as quickly as possible.

Chiropractic Care and Workers Comp Injuries

No matter where you work or the type of work you do, your body is at risk of injury. Even sitting at a desk for long periods and typing can lead to issues like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and herniated discs. And when you sustain an injury at work, it doesn’t just impact your ability to do your job. The workers comp injury and its effects can permeate every other area of your life. Fortunately, chiropractors like Dr. Cafagna and his team in San Marcos, CA, can help you get back on track. Learn more about how below.

Discovering and Treating the Root

Healing doesn’t come from putting a bandage over the symptoms. It comes from finding the root of the problem and addressing it.

If, for example, you have a great deal of inflammation, taking an anti-inflammatory might provide temporary relief, but it will return. Lasting relief will only come from treating the issue that is causing the inflammation in the first place.

Chiropractors want to relieve your pain, but they want that relief to last. Therefore, they focus on treating the root cause, not just the symptoms.

Identifying Contributing Factors

With the exception of sudden accidents, most workplace injuries develop over time. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, for example, doesn’t develop due to one day of typing. It occurs after repeating this action day after day.

Another example is a herniated disc. While they do occur during falls and due to other sudden force, they are more often the result of chronic poor posture, repetitive lifting, and similar consistent actions. Your chiropractor will not only aim to treat the injury itself but also the factors that led to its occurrence.

Utilizing Natural Techniques to Enhance Recovery

Many people who sustain injuries find themselves taking medication or recovering from invasive. Instead, chiropractors use natural techniques – techniques that work with the body’s own healing mechanisms. These include adjustments, chiropractic massage, spinal decompression, and more. Using natural techniques not only helps you heal more quickly and comprehensively, but it also means there are no additional procedures or substances to recover from.
