After a workplace accident occurs, it could cause injury or discomfort. When it comes to work-related injuries, there is often a lot of confusion around workers’ compensation and whether chiropractic care is covered. Workers’ compensation varies by state. However, in the state of Minnesota, if you are injured on the job, chiropractic care is covered under workers’ compensation. If you have suffered a workplace injury and are dealing with back or neck pain or lack of mobility, come to see a chiropractor at Advanced Medical of the Twin Cities as soon as you can!
When most people consider workers’ compensation, they typically think of massive injuries that occur on the job. While falls and overexertion lead to many workplace injuries, other common injuries include:
Common Workplace Injuries That Benefit From Chiropractic Care
● Repetitive Motion Injuries: These types of injuries are the result of doing the same activities day-to-day. Think sitting stationary at a desk, typing for eight hours a day, six 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.
One of the main reasons why you should see a chiropractor after suffering a workplace injury is to receive a full evaluation. Anyone that has back, or neck pain could have an underlying issue that needs more attention. While some injuries get better with rest and time, others require more work. A chiropractor will be able to evaluate your situation and provide the care that you need.
Chiropractic Care And Treatment
Once you have been fully evaluated, our chiropractors will also be able to provide you with a full care and treatment plan.

Eventually, it should improve your overall range of motion and help you to avoid feeling pain and discomfort.
