Workplace Injury Treatment in League City, TX

Are You a Candidate For Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

If you are experiencing pain as a result of a workplace injury, take comfort in the knowledge that you are not alone. Workplace pain affects millions of workers and ends up costing their employers billions each year in workmen’s compensation claims and in lost productivity.

Sadly, many occupations can place significant demands on your body, especially your back, shoulders and neck. And you don’t have to be a nurse, a construction worker or a factor worker to be at risk for workplace pain. Even routine office work can sometimes result in back pain and other work-related issues.

Lost Work Days

About 186 million work days are lost each year due to back pain alone. This has a profound effect on productivity and labor costs.

And while back pain is the most common type of workplace injury, other risks include overexertion, falls and repetitive motion injuries.

In 2012, the Liberty Mutual insurance company conducted a workplace safety study. They determined that the cost of the most disabling workplace injuries and illnesses totaled $51.1 billion per year in the form of workmen’s compensation expenses. That’s nearly $1 billion per week!

Contributing Factors

In another study, the Mayo Clinic took a look at the most common factors that contributed to workplace pain:

  • Force – Lifting and moving heavy objects can exert too much force on your back, resulting in injury.
  • Repetition – When you repeat certain movements over and over again, it can easily lead to muscle fatigue and injury. This is especially true if you are stretching to the limit of your range of motion or utilizing an awkward body position.
  • Posture – Muscle fatigue and injury also can be caused by slouching, which exaggerates your back’s natural curves.
  • Stress – Pressure at work can increase your anxiety. This has been directly linked to muscle tension and tightness, which can then cause back pain or make back injuries even worse.

Side Effects of Workplace Injuries

Lower back pain and other workplace injuries can affect other areas of your life. Many people with workplace injuries return to work even though they are in pain because they feel their career or jobs may be threatened if they report their pain.

Others are anxious about whether their injury will prevent them from continuing to hold a job. And others spend so much time dealing with flare-ups and treating their injuries on their own, that they ignore other important aspects of their lives, such as their families and social life.

I've been here several times for chiropractic treatment and massage. Both services are great. Dr. Vazquez taylors treatment specifically to your needs. Adjustments are never painful but are always effective. He utilizes additional therapies to increase healing. The massages are best I've had. If you're looking for a massage that provides actual relief, this is it. They are familiar with muscle anatomy and understand how to apply massage pressure to release pain and tightness. Everyone here from the techs who deliver the additional therapies, massage techs, the front desk, the Dr. himself are all a great team. From the moment you are greeted at the front door through the time of treatment, everyone is polite and professional. The facility itself is clean and very nice. Whether your pain is from an injury or just stress of life, I recommend giving them a try!

When I first moved to Texas I didn’t think I would find a chiropractor with the same level of knowledge as the one that I had in my home State. When I needed a chiropractor I found his place driving by and I decided to stop in. The first few visits, I didn’t let him touch my neck. I was scared because my previous doctor had finally fixed my neck after years of pain management. But as Dr Vazquez slowly gained my confidence I was able to let him treat me with no restrictions. Then I hurt my lower back and needed to go a specialist do the MRI and take oral cortisone, pain medication, muscle relaxant and finally a shot of cortisone in my spine. Dr. Vazquez, my chiropractor, started a stretch table treatment, laser and shockwave - that saved me. I still carry my cortisone pills, just in case, but I am living my life normally, of course a little bit more aware of my condition but no more Aleve, cortisone shots etc.. I can say that Dr Vasquez brought back my freedom to go anywhere I want. I do recommend him to all those out there who are in pain with a pinched nerve, sciatica, back pain etc.

Very professional and helpful. When I felt unheard by other physicians Dr Vasquez eased my concerns by explaining and educating me about the body’s anatomy. And that I wasn’t going crazy nor making things up. Shoot! I’m in pain! I was hopeless and giving up. Until I went to his office. He and his team were so helpful. It started at the entrance. The lady at the desk was kind and welcoming. I have to trust the process if I want to get back to my lifestyle of exercising, running, walking, working, etc. And I’m grateful to have a husband, a friend and concerned life partner who did the steps I couldn’t to find Dr. V! I appreciate Dr Vasquez’s honesty as well as his kind words. The bedside manner Dr. Vasquez and his team have are phenomenal! You ladies rock! Let’s keep thriving towards getting me back on both feet, balanced and feeling whole again!!!! Jeremiah 29:11

Keeps my back in shape to avoid missing work and the fun stuff in life. Update; I was a skeptic of acupuncture but it does help. Since I've tried it I have noticed an improvement in my overall health and well being.
