Workplace Injuries—Causes and Impact
Workplace Injury Common Causes
According to the National Safety Council (NSC), 84% of non-fatal workplace injuries result from three main causes: overexertion, falling, and contact with objects. A chiropractor may be able to help treat your pain in these situations—as well as any of the following.
- Scaffolding injuries: Falling through scaffolding or at a construction site while on the job can lead to serious back, head, and neck injuries.
- Heavy lifting: Lifting objects can put a strain on your muscles and joints, leading to tears and sprains.
- Slip and fall accidents: Slick surfaces, inadequate lighting, and obstructed pathways can all lead to falls and injuries.
- Fatigue: Overwork can lead to fatigue, dulled senses, and slow reaction times—which can cause injuries.
- Car accidents: When you drive for your job, you are at risk of getting into a traffic accident that could cause back and neck injuries.
- Typing injuries: Carpal tunnel and back pain from sitting at a desk can impact workers, as well.
Who Is at Risk for Workplace Injuries
We can all suffer injuries in the workplace, but physical laborers who need to bend and lift throughout the day can be at particular risk for back and neck injuries. Warehouse workers, construction workers, manufacturing workers, and agricultural workers can sustain these injuries as they make and transport the goods we use every day.
Service industry workers are also at risk. Cleaners, painters, maintenance workers, and restaurant employees often have to bend, twist, and strain themselves repeatedly in their workday to accomplish their tasks.
But it is not just physical workers who can suffer a workplace injury. Office workers are at risk of developing carpal tunnel, as well as back pain from sitting at a desk for hours on end.
At Dominguez Chiropractic, we know anyone from any line of work can get hurt and that they all deserve the same level of personal care for their pain. At our practice, we put the whole person first. We will devise a treatment plan to promote your overall well-being and help prevent future workplace injury.

Workplace Injury Consequences
Workplace injuries can have a life-altering impact on you and your family. Serious back and neck injuries can result in pain that prevents you from working or pursuing work in the future. Some of these consequential injuries include the following:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Numbness and tingling in limbs
- Carpal tunnel
- And other pains that can be caused by a workplace injury
The consequences of an injury do not stop at the physical symptoms. Your bills, insurance, income, and workman’s compensation can all be affected by a workplace injury. That is why we do not stop at just helping you treat your pain but also help you deal with various situations that can arise after an accident.
How Dominguez Chiropractic Can Help
We offer same-day appointments, so there is no need to wait to start feeling better. When you contact us, we can answer your questions about the services we provide and begin to plan your next steps.
Dr. Barbara Dominguez will meet with you personally when you receive treatment with us. A Roswell workplace injury chiropractor from our staff will carry out your treatment plan. Our treatments include spinal decompression, massage therapy, physical therapy, and chiropractic adjustment (which the Mayo Clinic affirms can be effective in treating types of neck and back pain).
Medical Doctor Appointments
At one of our five clinic locations, you can meet with an MD on the very same day. They can evaluate your health and prescribe medication to treat your pain.
Insurance and Workman’s Compensation
We can help you with your insurance and workman’s compensation claims. We can offer you guidance based on our evaluation of your health and injuries.
Sometimes, your insurance company or workman’s compensation will not pay the full amount you need to cover your expenses and lost wages after an accident. If necessary, we can refer you to a lawyer for your case so that you can pursue the compensation you need.
