In today’s fast paced work environment, work injuries are becoming very common. In one year alone, 4.5 million Americans suffered from work-related injuries and cost an estimated $151.1 billion. This adds up to a lot of lost revenue for both the employee and employer. Some common injuries are back spasms or neck spasms resulting from heavy lifting or from a fall. Injury to the muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the back often results in back spasms. Here at International Medical Clinics (IMC), we are pleased to offer comprehensive services for work injuries. We will create an individualized treatment plan specifically for your needs as well as provide rehabilitative therapy to help you return to your daily activities and work as soon as possible without pain. Chiropractic adjustments can help decrease tightness in your muscles that lead to your painful back or neck spasms. The adjustment will also align your body which takes pressure off the nerves and soft tissue thus reducing or eliminating the number of back spasms you experience. We may also offer nutritional advice to further help you. This may include increasing the amount of water you drink and changing your diet to restore balance and proper overall function. We will also provide you with tips to avoid any future injuries.
