Work Injuries

When an accident occurs, whether it be automobile related, work related or simply a fall, muscles, tendons, or ligaments of the spine may damaged or weakened and your overall health may be affected.

Workers’ Compensation Plans

It has been documented by workers’ compensation plans that there are more claims for back sprains and strains than any other category of injury. These conditions give rise to 60% of all compensation claims that are paid.

The Medical Approach

Treatment consisting of painkillers, muscle relaxers, orthopedic devices and physical therapy are all-common in the medical field. The problem with drug treatment for low back pain is evident, as even the strongest painkillers do not always relieve the pain. Relief may be obtained by injecting painkillers directly into the nerve roots, however as with all painkillers there is a risk of drug dependency. If pain persists, the medical approach is to recommend orthopedic surgery.

Unfortunately low back surgery is performed far to often, as 50% of the surgeries are deemed unnecessary. Many people who have had surgery report a return of symptoms within a year or two, and many do not have a change in their symptomatic state at all.

The Chiropractic Approach

Your Chiropractor's goal is to relieve your body of vertebral subluxations so that your body may function properly. Uncorrected vertebral subluxations can cause a weakening of the spinal muscles, stretch and deform the spinal column, cartilage, discs and vertebrae. This causes a lack of energy, early aging and fatigue. But the most prevalent result of spinal nerve stress is the irritation of the nervous system and brain stem. This irritation is an interference that interrupts the information and energy flow to the various parts of the body and lowers our natural resistance to sickness and disease. Chiropractors are trained to locate and correct vertebral subluxation through examination and spinal adjustment. The adjustments relieve the nerve stress and assist in restoration of body function. Proper functioning of the nervous system through chiropractic treatment is one of the best defenses against conditions and diseases that one would normally not be susceptible to.

In addition, many studies performed revealed that chiropractic treatment cost a fraction of the cost of the standard medical treatment and holds a higher success rate for relief of symptoms and correction of the problem causing the low back pain.

Chiropractic Rehabilitation and Recovery

A long-standing spinal problem may take a significant period of time to rehabilitate. Improved range of motion and muscle strengthening will assist in keeping the original health problem from returning again and again. This is achieved through rehabilitation. Chiropractic rehabilitation helps to restore proper joint function of the spine or extremities, and strengthens and support muscle and soft tissue. A program of stretching, resistance training, exercise to improve muscle tone and spinal adjustments are all components of chiropractic rehabilitation. Some therapy may be performed at home. While other therapy requires specialized equipment. All chiropractic patients should ask their treating chiropractor for specific ways that they could speed their healing process and strengthen supporting tissue. Instructions should be followed, and no rehabilitation should be attempted without the consent of the treating chiropractor, as exercises performed incorrectly may cause more damage to the injured area.

Our chiropractic office educates our patients in lifestyle changes that compliment their spinal care. Chiropractic spinal adjustments strengthen areas of the spine and restore impaired nerve flow. Subluxations occur when vertebra misalign irritating delicate spinal nerves. Spinal adjustments remove the nerve pressure and restore function to the body. Chiropractic spinal adjustments by our chiropractors help you live your life to its fullest through a properly functioning nervous system. When your nervous system is functioning properly you express life to your fullest. Chiropractic spinal adjustments enable you to express your God given health potential and to live your life to fullest capabilities. Neck pain, back pain, sciatica, reduced immunity, ear infections, decreased energy, stomach disorders, asthma, allergies, sinus problems, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder problems, sports injuries, spinal disc degeneration, osteoarthritis, numbness, pain, are just some of the signs of improper function in the body and conditions that benefit from Chiropractic spinal adjustments. Don't delay and wait for a spinal problem to develop before you seek out Chiropractic care. Get a Chiropractic spinal adjustment and deal with the cause of your problems rather than masking it with medications which often deal just with the symptoms. Whether you are feel great and want to ensure a healthy and fully functional future or if you are in pain and seek the safe and effective proven results of Chiropractic spinal adjustments, you owe it to yourself to have a spinal check up and to start down the healthy road of lifetime Chiropractic care.
