A back injury is a common work related injury affecting our patients at Tri County PMC, sometimes caused by a herniated disc or bad posture at work. We often see patients who sit at ergonomically unsound desks, hunched over all day, peering into their computer monitor, squeezing their neck to hold a phone during a call, or typing for hours without proper support.
This all takes a real toll on our muscles and can cause great strain and pain.
Carpal Tunnel and other similar syndromes are more common as we spend hours typing, or using mobile devices in repetitive manners. These painful conditions can be characterized by a burning pain sensation, difficulty gripping objects, and a tingling feeling, caused by swelling around the wrist nerves.
When you work with us at Tri County Pain Management Centers, our medical professionals will consult with you to narrow down the potential sources of the problem, and can recommend changes to your office ergonomics and routines that can help. The height of your chair, PC, and other desktop items can make a difference, and the way you regularly interact with them.
We can also suggest therapy and massage techniques to help relieve the pain.
If your work injury caused a herniated disc, chiropractic adjustments can help restore good alignment and bring relief to neck, back or migraine pain. Our doctors and medical professionals are skilled in pain management, and can work to develop a custom treatment to help you find recovery from painful symptoms.
