Workplace Injuries

You will be pleased to find that most work injuries can be fixed by the best chiropractor in Yakima. Generally most work injuries don’t typically result from one accident as one would think, but rather, they occur from repetitive strain to specific sections of the body and develop from overuse. There are of course exceptions, for example, an auto injury in a company vehicle while on the job. In any case, there are numerous causes for work injuries in various fields of work. Most importantly, work injuries can, and need to be treated before the injury causes permanent changes and requires surgery for correction. The following article details risk factors for work injuries and explains how Acute Chiropractic is able to help you heal from a work injury.


Simple tasks done without the correct posture or positioning performed over long stretches of time will cause wear and tear on the joints and muscles of the body. From sitting all day at a desk to lifting heavy boxes while bending or twisting, given time, even the simplest tasks can cause acute and serious pain to occur. Even with perfect posture, repetitive work stress over eight or more hours a day can cause chronic issues over time. Below are listed a few repetitive stress injuries that can occur:

  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Back Ache (“Threw my back out”)
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Slipped or Herniated discs
  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis
  • Headaches

This is only a partial list with many more possibilities. If you are experiencing the symptoms of an overuse injury or might be at risk, it is wise to begin corrective and preventative care with a chiropractic consultation. Our Yakima chiropractor always provides free consultations to help determine the best route of care for all patients. Seeking treatment could prevent a drawn out battle with pain that stops you from living the life you want to lead.



The spinal column is the main bony structure of the body that absorbs shock. It is also commonly affected by work injuries. Since the spine houses and protects the spinal cord, it often causes pain when it gets injured. When vertebrae become misaligned from the repetitive stress of work the nerve fibers in the spinal cord become irritated causing pain to radiate into parts of the body that may not have even been injured. Additionally, misaligned joints can stop signaling from the nervous system and blood flow of the cardiovascular system. This can cause pain, but can also lead to permanent damage to various body systems.


Chiropractic care is non-invasive and safe. Chiropractors specialize in treating work related injuries and are very successful in doing so. Our Yakima chiropractor will conduct a thorough examination to identify the source of the injury. Afterwards, Dr. Grimmer will put together a personalized care plan to ensure you recover swiftly and maximally.
