Treating Work-Related Injuries in the Greater Charleston Area
Work injuries can keep you from enjoying activities outside of the workplace. Severe or chronic work injuries can affect your quality of life. If you have a work-related injury or experience a painful condition after doing a repetitive work activity, consult with Dr. McKinney to see what can be done.
In addition to providing general chiropractic services, Dr. McKinney, can tailor a targeted treatment plan that can help relieve the discomfort of the work-related injury, encourage the return of healthy, stronger movement, and help strengthen your body to withstand the daily stress and pressure you may experience in the workplace.
