Tacoma Injury on the Job


If you have suffered an injury on the job in the Tacoma area, we want to find the root cause of your job injury rather than just treat your symptoms. The use of integrative chiropractic care and natural medicine are among the first lines of treatment for many job injuries such as:

  • Back pain and sciatica
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Sprains
  • Headaches
  • Neck, shoulder, knee or ankle pain
  • Nerve damage
  • Tendonitis

Our goal when using chiropractic adjustment is to bring your body’s frame back to normal and improve spinal motion. It focuses on correcting the misalignments with your spine and bringing back correct movement to spinal joints that may be out of alignment.

From pain reduction and inflammation to help with tension, nerve irritation and muscle spasms, we can help patients by alleviating back and neck pain. As a work-related injuries specialist, we can speed you on your way to a full and healthy recovery! Call us today to set up an appointment.

Tacoma Job Injury


Many work-related injuries occur as a result of overuse rather than serious accidents. Common forms of job injury as a result of repetitive stress and overuse include:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Adhesive capsulitis or frozen shoulder
  • Herniated or slipped discs
  • Arthritis
  • Backache

These types of job injuries are frequently the result of poor posture, or twisting and turning, or repetitively using the same movement hour after hour. Whether your injury on the job is a result of an accident or repetitive stress, your bone structure, and especially the spinal column may be impacted.

When misalignment occurs, there is often pressure placed on the nerves that pass through the vertebrae and joints causing pain that radiates outwardly from the source of your injury to other parts of your body.

If you are experiencing pain, call the office of Dr. Erik W. Gilbertson, DC, ND, who serves the Tacoma area, to schedule an appointment.
