Worker's Compensation

Workers’ compensation injuries are any type of injury that happens while on the job. Examples include a delivery driver having an auto accident, an office worker suffering a repetitive motion injury (such as carpal tunnel syndrome), or a construction worker harming their hand with a power tool. Many injuries require more than just emergency medical treatment; they need chiropractic care for continued relief of pain and discomfort.

Chiropractic care here at Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center helps with the following types of workers’ compensation injuries and more:

1. Fallen objects.

2. Slipping, tripping or falling.

3. Physical altercations at work.

4. Repetitive motion injuries.

5. Vehicle accidents.

6. Machinery and electronic accidents.

7. Overexertion and exhaustion.

Dr. Kent Carlomagno begins care by identifying the issue and any underlying medical problems and addressing them together. In some cases, he figures out the chronic back pain is actually not just from overexertion at work, but because the spine is out of alignment. Through an adjustment and therapeutic massage, the entire body finds relief and the patient can return to work.
