for work Injuries
If you have been injured at work (work comp injury), at home, or at play, the most important thing to do first is find out which tissues were injured. For example, did you just strain a muscle, or did you tear a ligament or rupture a disc? These are all “soft tissue” injuries, but each requires different treatment and each takes a different amount of time to heal. You can only find out what tissues are injured with a thorough history and examination followed by appropriate imaging and tests such as X-rays or MRI’s. Only after a clear diagnosis is determined can an effective treatment plan be designed that is not only specific for your injuries but also for how those injuries impact your activities.
At CFC we use a combination of specific chiropractic adjustments, therapeutic exercises, spinal traction, and manual therapy all combined to help you feel better and get back to your normal activities as soon as possible.
Work-related injuries are something that demand immediate attention. If you live in the Bellingham area, getting properly diagnosed from someone other than the “doctor your work told you to go see” is extremely important. Having a thorough second opinion from a Bellingham doctor who works for YOU is obviously in your best interest. Having the injury properly documented and then getting the best care possible will create the best opportunity for you to get rid of the cause of the pain and get back to work. At Connect Family Chiropractic, we pride ourselves on working in the best interest of our patient to correct the underlying problems caused by the injuries.
