Chiropractor for Work Injuries
Chiropractic at its finest.
If you have been injured at work, it is best to let the medical experts at Northgate Accident & Injury Clinic assist you in recovering.
Chiropractic Care After Work Injuries
Chiropractors are often thought of as specialists who only treat back pain. However, chiropractors treat various injuries and conditions, many of which are work-related. For injuries that occur on the job, in a car accident, or through another type of accident, a chiropractor can help you heal and return to normal activities.
Regarding work-related injuries, there is often a lot of confusion around workers’ compensation and whether or not chiropractic care is covered. In Washington State, workers’ compensation covers chiropractic care after a work injury.

Benefits Of Chiropractic Care After Workplace Injuries
Specific work-related injuries can cause stretching and tearing of muscles surrounding your spinal column. Once damage occurs, these muscles and ligaments loosen, making the spine out of alignment. When the spine isn’t aligned, it can cause pain, disc irritation, pinching of nerves, and decreased motion, to name a few. In addition, these injuries can sometimes lead to chronic problems such as back pain or herniated discs.
If you have suffered a work-related injury that has caused stretching and tearing of your muscles and ligaments, seeking an experienced chiropractor specializing in work accidents can provide the treatment you need to recover from your injuries and avoid future problems. Call Dr. Trevor at Northgate Accident & Injury Clinic by calling 1-206-420-3531. He can asses the damage and create chiropractic care after a work injury specific to your needs.
Most common workplace injuries are less catastrophic than you may think. For example, while falls and overexertion lead to many workplace injuries, other common injuries include:
Repetitive Motion Injuries: These injuries result from doing the same day-to-day activities, such as sitting at your desk for 8 hours a date, five days a week.
Injuries from Falling Objects: These injuries can lead to significant head, neck, and back injuries depending on what fell, its weight, and where it fell from.
How Chiropractic Care At Northgate Accident & Injury Clinic Can Help
Depending on the nature of the workplace injury, Northgate Accident & Injury Clinic can help alleviate your pain and get you on the path to recovery. From manual manipulation, physical therapy, and massage therapy, chiropractic care after work accidents provides patients an alternative to traditional medical treatment.
Northgate Accident & Injury Clinic in Northgate aims to restore the nervous system’s and spine’s optimal functioning. Chiropractors accomplish this by adjusting your spine to correct misalignment or subluxation and improving nerve function, circulation, and range of motion. In addition, if you suffer an injury at work, you can seek chiropractic care as part of your workers’ compensation benefits to help with any of the following conditions:
Sciatica is a condition that affects the large nerve that runs down each leg from your lower back. It can result in buttock pain and pain down one or both legs. In addition, the sciatic nerve in the lower back is usually compressed or irritated, resulting in sciatica (the sacroiliac joint). Chiropractors are trained to identify and treat this condition using spinal manipulation techniques.
Chiropractic adjustments have proven effective in treating lower back pain and other physical injuries. Chiropractors perform spinal manipulation, which helps to relieve pain and improve function by realigning the spine. The adjustments can also help relax tight muscles, reduce stress on joints and ligaments, and improve circulation.
Northgate Accident & Injury Clinic can help with headaches and migraines in several ways. Chiropractors are trained to perform spinal manipulation, which can often relieve pain and improve function by realigning the spine. The adjustments can also help relax tight muscles, reduce stress on joints and ligaments, and improve circulation.
Numbness or Tingling in Extremities Due to Spinal Stenosis
Spinal stenosis is when the spinal canal narrows, causing nerve compression or impingement. The narrowing pressure can cause chronic pain and long-term disability.
Northgate Accident & Injury Clinic in Northgate focuses on correcting mechanical problems with your spine and soft tissue to get to the root of the problem. In addition, Dr. Trevor uses hands-on manipulation to adjust your nervous system and can help relieve symptoms of this condition.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a repetitive injury to the wrist’s median nerve. CTS occurs when the median nerve at the wrist becomes irritated, swollen, or compressed. This puts pressure on the nerve, which can cause pain. CTS, considered a work-related injury, can trigger workers’ compensation claims and workers’ comp benefits.
Disc herniation is when a disc between two vertebrae ruptures or bulges into the spinal canal. If it presses on a nerve root, it can cause severe pain and even paralysis. Chiropractors can aid in treating this condition by adjusting the spine, which frequently relieves pressure on the affected nerve root.
