There are several ways you can suffer from a work injury. The most common is a back injury among many others. Other work injuries may include neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches, and carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). These injuries might be caused by lifting, slipping, twisting, falling, something falling on you, car accident while working, sitting, using a computer, repetitive stress (doing the same movement over and over again)…
Oregon law mandates that you may choose massage are chiropractic care for your work injuries. Sometimes your employer may try to send you to their company doctor. The company doctor may have the company’s best interests in mind and not your best interests. Call Portland Deep Tissue Massage for more details about work related injury treatment.
