Chiropractic for Laborers

back pain boxChiropractic care can be an important part of your health and wellness regime when working by using your hands, navigating heavy lifting, and active use of your full body.

Perhaps you’re leaning to one side for much of your shift, carrying heavy items on one shoulder, or you must turn your body, especially your neck and shoulders, in tight spaces, like under a sink or in between sections of walls. People who use their bodies to work — especially those who have been doing so for years — are at risk for developing repetitive injuries and aggravating the imbalances that already exist.

At Branchville Family Chiropractic, we enjoy helping laborers overcome their injuries and misalignments, allowing you to not just work without pain or discomfort, but enjoy your life outside of work to its fullest as well.

Personalized Care for Your Health Needs

Since 1986, Dr. Kim Stetzel has been dedicated to making wellness the focus of the practice. Addressing your specific needs, our chiropractic care plans are tailored to the individual who comes through the door.

Dr. Kim will look at your current and past stresses, what your body is experiencing, how you work and what your physical responsibilities may be, and then design care with that information and her clinical observations. As you receive care, you’ll be monitored on a regular basis, so we can see we’re achieving our goals.

If you are progressing along your individualized plan, and doing well, we celebrate those successes. If certain movements or areas of the body continue to trigger you, we may temporarily increase the frequency of your adjustments, employ a different technique and give you recommendations for exercises you can do at home to help you get back to the path to optimal health and wellness.

Ergonomic Advice and Wellness Support

Following chiropractic care, many of our patients who are physical laborers find that they can do their jobs more efficiently and effectively and not be in so much pain when they go home. This occurs because they’re getting adjusted and clearing out the imbalances they’ve had from all the hard work they’ve done for so many years.

We also give you advice about ways to change how you work, suggesting more ergonomically compatible methods for the lifting, turning, twisting and other movements you may do throughout your work shift.

This way, you aren’t continuing to injure or harm yourself and you are actively working to prevent work-related injuries. In turn, this will improve your overall well-being in these demanding professions.

Improve Your Well-being at Work and Home

We take the time to get to know you and how your work affects your body. Through targeted chiropractic care, individualized to your specific needs, we can help mitigate the stresses that are creating pain or discomfort while preventing future problems.

If you’re ready to find new ways to help you work and improve your experience, health and well-being, chiropractic is the key. Contact us today to schedule an appointment!
