When we hear the phrase “work-related injuries” we often think of slips and falls, repetitive movement injuries from working on an assembly line, and back issues caused by lifting heavy items and materials. In today’s tech-centric world, a work injury may just as likely be carpal tunnel syndrome, frozen shoulder, and back, neck, and shoulder issues caused by sitting in front of a computer all day with poor posture practices.

The Balanced Atlas Provides Vocational Rehab for an Injury at Work

Vocational rehab can help you to not only heal from your present injury but help you to develop techniques to lessen your chance of lingering problems as well as the likelihood of reinjury. We begin your course of treatment with a comprehensive examination including a full run of diagnostic tests including x-rays when necessary. From there we will ensure that your spine and neck are in proper alignment. Treatment of injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, we will address the soft-tissue injury to the wrist as well as the joints and muscles that support it.

In addition to the in-office treatment that we provide, we will formulate a regimen of strengthening exercises and stretches that will help to keep the area limber. Strengthening the muscles that support the spine and neck can decrease your chances of reinjury as strong muscles help to protect these sensitive areas. We will work with you to understand your lifestyle habits and make recommendations to improve your overall health. For patients whose injuries are related to computer use, we will advise appropriate posture and ergonomic practices to lower the likelihood of continued pain and injury.
