Have you been hurt on the job, or do you have workplace-related pain that gets in the way of your job duties or daily life? Random incidents can occur to anyone, at any time. Workplace injuries can come in a number of different forms such as joint or back pain, tendonitis, disc injuries, whiplash, and more. Slips, falls, overexertion, and other injuries at work can cause significant pain and damage if left unattended over time. It is important to seek out a medical professional to treat the injury.
Nowadays, there are plenty of options outside of heavy medications and invasive surgeries to correct workplace injuries. There are new, all-natural, noninvasive treatments for pain caused by a work injury. Namely, there are platelet-rich plasma injections, regenerative medicine, and chiropractic care.
Treatments for Workplace Injuries
At Tarpon Total Health Care, we offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, regenerative medicine, and chiropractic care. All of these treatments open the opportunity to relieve pain and even restore function to damaged tissues without the need for pain medication or surgery.
PRP injections work by using a patient’s own blood to heal their damaged tissue. Blood is drawn from the patient and spun in a centrifuge. This rapid, spinning motion separates the platelets from the rest of the blood. The PRP is then re-administered into the patient’s problem-site.
The collected substance is abundant with growth factors and other beneficial proteins, all of which promote tissue repair and relieve pain. Also, since the PRP is collected from the patient themselves, there is little-to-no risk of rejection when injected into the problem area. With PRP injections, pain from workplace injuries can not only be alleviated but can repair damages as well.
Regenerative cellular therapy is a form of regenerative medicine treatment that uses mesenchymal cells extracted from the Wharton’s jelly of an umbilical cord. All umbilical cords used are collected from healthy, consenting mothers, making this a safe and ethical process. Once the mesenchymal cells are obtained, they are injected into the receiving patient’s site of injury.
These cells are robust and can immediately get to work on recovering damages. They are also immune-privileged, meaning they have no established immune system. This leaves a little-to-no risk of rejection from the receiving patient’s body. Regenerative cellular therapy is a viable option for pain relief and recovery from a workplace injury.
Chiropractic care is another form of treatment we offer and includes therapies such as spinal decompression, massage therapy (used in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments), and more. These services work by making the muscles relax and making gentle adjustments to the joints of the body, especially the spine.
These procedures are noninvasive and have shown to help many individuals alleviate their pain. Treatments like spinal decompression release pressure between the spinal discs, which enhances circulation resulting in long-lasting relief. Chiropractic services can provide essential relief and recovery for those suffering from a work accident.
