How Chiropractic Care Heals Overexertion Injuries

posted in: Avoiding Injuries | 0

If your employees’ jobs involve laborious activities, they’re more susceptible to sustaining overexertion injuries. These are injuries caused by lifting, pulling, pushing, or carrying heavy objects. It’s one of the most common types of workplace injuries and can be the most expensive to treat. (Especially if you think surgery is the only option for treatment.) Fortunately, our Next Level Wellness team has alternatives that can heal your employee’s injuries in a matter of weeks while cutting down on costs and lowering the risk of complications.



Fascial Integrative Treatment, or F.I.T., is an advanced soft-tissue system that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, nerves and joints. It is a manual hands-on therapy that corrects the dysfunctions that these soft-tissues can undergo. When you are injured, scar tissue adhesions can accumulate in your muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. When this problem goes unaddressed, the result is pain, discomfort, and lack of mobility. However, by using F.I.T., our chiropractors are able to break up these restrictive adhesions, re-instate normal tissue flexibility, and restore balance and stability to the injured area.



Active Release Technique, or A.R.T., is a highly skilled therapy that has been developed to treat problems with the muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. Essentially, A.R.T. treats problems associated with overused muscles. These can be the result of pulls, tears, or a lack of oxygen reaching the muscle. Over time, these small injuries accumulate and can cause a variety of problems. From back and knee pain to carpal tunnel and sciatica, A.R.T. can treat and heal a wide variety of injuries.
