What is workers' compensation?

Worker’s Compensation is defined as an injury that occurs to an employee during the course of their normal work duties. Workers’ Compensation covers any injuries that are sustained while on the job and can also be any condition that is aggravated or accelerated by employment activities.

Before seeking chiropractic care, you should report your work injury to your employer and open a claim. Minnesota employers are required to carry worker’s compensation insurance to provide financial compensation in the case of a work-related injury. Bring your workers' compensation claim information along to your appointment at Quality Life Chiropractic and Massage so we can make sure that you get the care that you deserve.

Work Injury Prevention and Ergonomics

Since the best way to treat an injury is to never get it in the first place, a proactive approach involves strategic planning to minimize injury and should be taken by all employers and employees, especially where the risk of injury is high. This would include workers who sit for extended periods of time, perform repetitive movements, and workers who lift or move heavy objects.

Factors that contribute to work injuries include:

  • Repetitive, forceful, or prolonged exertion of the hands (ex. carpal tunnel)
  • Frequent and or improper lifting, pushing, pulling, or carrying of heavy objects (ex. low back pain)
  • Prolonged poor posture (ex. neck and back pain)
  • Overexertion
  • Falls
  • Blunt force trauma
