Workplace Injury Treatment in Florham Park, NJ

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.

After searching for answers, for the past ten months, through a host of doctors, imaging and medical facilities, Total Health Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Center was what I was looking for! I remember calling their office five minutes before closing in a state of desperation. Despite their day ending, they took the time to listen carefully to my concerns and answer all of my questions beyond the end of their work day. As I hung up the phone, I finally had an appointment and some hope. Dr. Tyminski sat with my husband and I and, in detail, reviewed the results of my cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine MRI's. He took the time to explain my situation and gave me a plan of action. Finally, after months and months of searching I felt that I had someone who understood my condition and had a plan to help address it. After three weeks in, I have nothing but praise for the entire team at Total Health Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Center. Their professional, supportive, and compassionate care is outstanding!

When I first came here two months ago I was in so much pain and was feeling very discouraged. Everyone has been so helpful and so kind and this has made a huge difference for me. I am experiencing no pain and I have not taken an Advil in over a month. Dr. Locatelli and Dr. Sheppard have been so helpful and kind and caring. Janet, Beth and Jan in Physical Therapy have been tremendously helpful and they are making a big difference in my treatment. Also, every time I walk in, there is Kalayha, greeting me warmly and making me feel welcomed and always helpful setting up my appointments and just being awesome. I highly recommend Total Health Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.

The staff and doctors are kind and cheerful and helpful in the face of my handicaps; I'm grateful for their service, and I recommend them heartily.

Everyone at the center is so nice and friendly. Very helpful and the decompression therapy that I did helped with my herniated disc. Now doing acupuncture and that seems to be helping with some other health issues that I have. Plus it's so relaxing.
