Few work environments, if any, are completely risk-free for accidents. Some workplaces, however, are at greater risk than others due to a worker’s responsibilities, equipment used for the job or workplace surroundings. If you sustain an injury on the job, report it to your supervisor right away so you can get treatment through workers comp. This can include chiropractic care for musculoskeletal injuries on the job. If your work injury results in muscle, joint, ligament or nerve pain, you can turn to us at Marsch Chiropractic serving Orangeburg, SC, for pain relief treatment, pain managemment, and chiropractic care to help expedite your recovery.

Poor posture and bad ergonomics over the years can result in chronic neck, shoulder or back pain due to straining muscles in your neck, shoulder and back. Other causes of workplace injuries include repetitive motions, falling objects, slip and falls, heavy lifting, and overexertion on the job. Some common work injuries our family chiropractor can treat are:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
