A workplace injury can be extremely disruptive and can require significant injury treatment. Some estimates are that nearly 500,000 individuals are injured or become ill at work each year and are disabled for more than five months. Unfortunately, there are also some instances in which people are unable to ever return to work. This translates to many treatment sessions with a variety of health care providers in many specialties because the injuries can be complex and require a holistic approach to achieve the best results. Serving Edina, MN and the surrounding area, AdvaCare Clinics is perfectly suited to help those with workplace injuries, offering a multidisciplinary approach to care.
Work Injury Rehabilitation
After suffering a workplace injury, one of the most important things that you can develop with your team of providers is a realistic treatment and recovery plan. AdvaCare Clinics will work closely with you to outline exactly the estimated timeline for treatment and recovery so that your expectations match those of your health care providers. We believe that you are a partner in the treatment and recovery plan and while we are qualified to treat work-related injuries, your thoughts and insights are a very important part of the healing process.
There are many possible types of workplace injuries — the most common is pain in the lower back, and injuries that are caused by repeating the same movement over and over (think carpal tunnel syndrome). Other common workplace injuries are rotator cuff injuries, neck strains and sprains and knee, hip and joint issues. Many of these injuries benefit greatly from physical therapy and chiropractic treatment in addition to medical treatment. AdvaCare Clinic’s physical therapy helps the worker regain strength so that they can return to the workplace strong and less likely to have a repeat injury. Our chiropractic team provides a conservative, holistic approach to care and most often treats neuromusculoskeletal conditions.
