Have you been injured at work in Peterborough?
Over 57, 000 Ontarians will be injured on the job this year. If you live in Peterborough and have suffered an on-the-job injury, Dr Doug Lukinuk (Dr. Doug), Dr. Peter Drysdale (Dr. Peter) and staff at PTBO Chiro can help. What you do for a living can have a huge impact on your body – it doesn’t matter if you’re a carpenter who is constantly hauling heavy lumber and equipment, a nurse who regularly has to lift and move patients, a factory worker on an assembly line, or someone works in an office behind a desk – you may sustain injuries at work. And while it may be tempting to ‘tough it out” to avoid missing work or in the hope that the injury will resolve on its own – this often is not the best strategy. Without proper medical attention and recovery time, even relatively minor injuries can become severe and potentially chronic.
