How can a massage therapist help with work injuries?

How can acupuncture help with work injuries?
Acupuncture involves the restoration of energy flow back to the body. When a work-related injury occurs, this natural flow of energy is often disrupted. This type of energy disruption can also occur in jobs that require repetitive motions.
How can epidural injections help with work injuries?
Another option when it comes to healing from a work-related injury without having to undergo surgery are epidural injections. These types of injections given around the roots of the spinal nerve can help immensely to decrease pain and help patients progress more quickly with rehabilitation.
What kind of treatments will I need?
The type of treatment will largely depend on the type of work-related injury you have sustained and what part of body sustained the injury. Some injuries may only require one type of treatment while other types of injuries will benefit from combined treatments.
