Work Injuries

Dr. Jimenez Work Injuries Chiropractic, Physical Therapy, and Rehabilitation Team. Serious workplace injuries happen every day. Every day in America, people go to work and end up with serious work injuries. Around 3 million people suffer a workplace injury that they may never recover from. These usually include overexertion, which includes injuries related to pulling, lifting, pushing, holding, carrying, and throwing activities at work. Overexertion has consistently been the number one workplace cause of injury and the most expensive. 

A personal injury doctor or chiropractor is an effective, alternative treatment option for various injuries surrounding the spine. When an individual has suffered an injury due to an auto accident, work accident, or home accident, a personal injury doctor can positively influence the proper progress of their rehabilitation, helping the individual obtain the fair compensation they need and deserve for their injuries. An experienced and well-trained personal injury doctor can provide quality treatment and support patients throughout their injury claim procedures.
