Missing work because of a job-related injury in Kailua-Kona is not a good thing whether you like your job or not. Being injured not only interferes with your work but also with your day-to-day tasks. Even things as simple as brushing your hair, climbing stairs or bending over can become a challenge with an injury.

According to the United States Department of Labor, an injury is considered work related if "an event or exposure in the work environment either caused or contributed to the resulting condition or significantly aggravated a preexisting injury."

The most common areas impacted by work-related injuries are the spine head, hands, skeleton, lungs, skin and eyes. Many work-related injuries occur when people try to lift or push heavy objects incorrectly or perform their job with poor posture or in a repetitive manner. In addition, today's sedentary office workers also experience a number of workplace injuries because of long hours spent in immobile positions or from constant use of a keyboard.

Workers who travel frequently may also experience strain from carrying luggage, laptops or other business equipment. Women, in particular who wear high-healed shoes and carry heavy shoulder bags with computers and work-related material are also at risk of chronic shoulder, neck and back pain.

Depending on the exact nature of your injury, there are numerous treatment options. However, studies have demonstrated that chiropractic care can help most people with work related injuries recover faster and get them back to work sooner along with lower treatment expenditures. This is a good thing in light of the fact that the cost of work related injuries totals more that $155 billion each year.

According to a 2008 study featured in the medical journal Spine, when over 2,000 workers who had work-related spinal injuries wen to see a chiropractor first after their injury, they were considerably less likely to suffer from a disability within one year versus those who visited other types of providers such as primary care physicians, occupational medical specialists or other medical professionals.
