Have You Been Injured At Work in Quincy MA?


Many people are surprised to find out that the majority of work-aggravated spinal complaints whether acute, subacute, or which gradually occur over time can be helped by a Quincy MA Chiropractor, located minutes from Milton, Dorchester, and the South Shore.

Work injuries can occur from serious acute or subacute accidents which involve workers compensation but also over time spinal and extra-spinal complaints can cumulatively develop from overuse and repetitive stress.

When there is an acute or subacute injury that occurs directly on the job, your regular health insurance normally does not cover this kind of treatment. This kind of care often requires an incident report filed with your supervisor and is most often covered and case-managed within your employers’ workers compensation system which often includes utilization review for your chiropractic treatment in Massachusetts. At times legal guidance is needed.

An important key point to consider when dealing with work-related general complaints that slowly develop, when possible, one should seek early treatment and not wait until your complaints trigger an acute or subacute injury which could become an involved workers compensation incident that could cause lengthy missed work time and require more serious intervention.

Most health insurance plans in Massachusetts cover chiropractic treatment for general spinal complaints not caused directly by an incident on the job. Everyday life activities can contribute to our general spinal complaints, including general work activities (no incident), yard work, workouts, sports activities, lifting your child, use of a smartphone or computer, or a near slip or fall at home.  Check with your health insurance to determine your chiropractic benefit and if your chiropractor is an in or out-of-network provider.

This article talks about some of the risk factors involved with common work complaints and how chiropractic care can help you to recover from them.


Tasks done with poor posture on an ongoing basis can create big problems over time. Twisting and turning and lifting while moving in an awkward position or an inadequate ergonomic computer and smartphone set up with continuous typing or texting can affect one’s posture and cause pain.

Even if you are using the correct posture, the simple act of doing the same movement day in and day out can create major problems over time. Here are some of the common repetitive stress symptoms:

  • Lower Back, Middle Back, and Neck pain, soreness, and stiffness which can involve radiating complaints down your gluteal region and leg or radiating complaints down your arm into your fingers.
  • Shoulder joint pain and restriction.
  • Carpal Tunnel compression symptoms such as numbness in your fingers.
  • Elbow and Wrist pain/soreness.

The list goes on. Even if you are just at the beginning of an overuse complaint, or you are concerned that you may start to develop one because of the nature of your work on the job or personal activities, it is important to start preventative and early treatment to ensure the issue does not progress to something more problematic.

Work-Related Injuries IN QUINCY MA

Whether you have injuries caused directly by an acute or subacute accident at work, or your spinal and extra-spinal complaints are aggravated gradually from repetitive stress activities at work or home, it is very common for the bone structure and particularly the spinal column to be impacted, and to be the source of the pain you are experiencing. When the vertebrae and other joints become misaligned, they will often put pressure on the nerves that pass through them and cause pain that radiates out from the source of the injury to other parts of the body. Furthermore, when the bones are not properly aligned, the flow of communication, blood, and oxygen can become impeded, leading to a decrease in your sense of well-being in the short-term, and damage to the related systems in the long term.


People often see their chiropractors because of their success rate in treating these types of complaints. Chiropractic care offers a gentle, non-invasive first step when seeking treatment. A chiropractor will perform a thorough evaluation to assess your condition and find the exact source. Once the cause of the pain has been determined, the chiropractor will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan.

The sooner you receive proper care, it is easier to avoid further pain and complications. Call our team at Clark Chiropractic Inc today to get started on the track to recovery.
