Work Related Injuries
Millions of American workers are injured on the job annually. People slip and fall on wet floors, they lift heavy objects the wrong way, they hunch over their work and type at their computers for hours in non-ergonomic positions, etc. These and many other types of work related injuries in Dunedin result in everything from back pain and neck pain to wrist and shoulder pain.
Work related injuries in Dunedin can happen on any job site, whether it is a construction site, a bakery, a shoe store or a software company. So our Dunedin chiropractor knows that not all workers compensation situations are the same, and every patient needs personal, individualized attention to fully recover. Dr. Raveling first gives each patient a thorough exam. He will check the spinal alignment to determine if an injury adversely affected proper posture—or was adversely affected by poor posture, as is often the case. Dr. Raveling can then perform gentle, precise spinal adjustments to correct spinal alignment, which leads to pain relief and enables the nervous system to direct its healing energies effectively.
He will also assess the condition of the entire musculoskeletal system; the condition of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, etc. is just as important as the alignment of the spine as the whole system works together. When one part is injured, it can cause imbalance and pain in other parts of the body. Work related injuries often cause painful scar tissue in the muscles. Dr. Raveling is experienced with the Gonstead technique that helps break up scar tissue to enable the muscles to heal properly. He often recommends massage therapy and other forms of physiotherapy designed to stimulate and accelerate internal, natural healing within the injured soft tissues.
