Just last Sunday, there was an article in the Cincinnati Enquirer about medics sustaining injuries while “moving heavy victims.” We may not think a paramedic is necessarily in danger when responding to an emergency, but treating a person who struggles with their weight can have a negative impact on the paramedics health. The article noted that “injuries can range from minor — taking a couple of days off work — to career ending and a change in lifestyle.” Not only are those who “serve and protect” put in harms way due to the nature of their profession, but performing the tasks required of their job can have consequences, too. There are countless job hazards in other professions, as well. But, did you know that there is a trusted solution in treating those injured on the job?
The reality is that even professions that aren’t considered dangerous are still prone to accidents and the physical requirements of a job can cause undo stress on our bodies. The stress alone can create pain, discomfort, and imbalances that can negatively impact our sleep, family life, motivation, appetite, and immune system. With injuries, many times they are tolerable, so we choose to do nothing but wait until it gets better. Dealing with stress can be no different. Have you considered that there just might be a better way? A chiropractic way?
A chiropractor is a healthcare professional that can be there to help you mend those injuries sustained at work, from the minor to the life-changing. The difference is that there is no “band-aid” to hinder proper healing. A chiropractor gets to the core of the problem, identifies it, and provides a course of treatment that addresses the entire person. There is nothing worse than spinning in circles when it comes to your health. The end result is lost time, lost work, and lost peace of mind. A remedy that combines the benefits of chiropractic care, with the support of massage and rehabilitation is anything but a “band-aid.” It is the solution your body needs so it can function as it should.
Make sure that chiropractic care is an integral part of your healthcare team. Because minimizing the time it takes to get back to the job you love and feeling good again is what we want, isn’t it?
