Most of us place a fairly high priority on earning a living -- which is why work injuries can cause both intense pain and severe frustration and anxiety about your future. But invasive surgery to treat a work injury can necessitate some extended downtime of its own. Fortunately, Bakke Chiropractic clinic in Tacoma WA can provide you with natural, non-surgical work injury care to help you get back to your job and your everyday life.
Work injuries can take many different forms and have many different causes. You might suffer from a work injury accident injury, or you might develop a chronic work injury over a period of time. Examples of work injury accident injury problems include:
Chronic work injuries stem from overuse of certain body parts due to repetitive motions required by your job or work environment. Poor workplace ergonomics (such as awkward positioning of desks, chairs, monitors, file cabinets or keyboards) can force you to bend, stoop, or stretch your body into unnatural postures. Constant overuse of specific tissues can cause those tissues to become inflamed and swollen, potentially causing nerve impingement, pain and/or loss of function. Examples of chronic work injuries include carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis (if you must stand or walk for hours at a time), rotator cuff injuries in the shoulder, and "text neck" from holding your head at unnatural angles (to view your monitor or mobile device).

We will examine your musculoskeletal alignment while evaluating your current symptoms, history of any medical issues, everyday work tasks, and any recent incidents that may have produced acute damage. We can then create a personalized treatment program including such options as:
