Our Chiropractor Helps Workman’s Compensation Patients Receive Fair, Effective Care
Many of our patients suffer from a herniated disc in the back. Depending on the injury’s location, a herniated disc may cause pain in the low back, shoulders, buttocks or legs. A herniated disc can be caused by the following:
- Accidental slip and fall
- Improperly lifting heavy objects
- Even poor office ergonomics
Once a disc slips out of place, this mechanical misalignment requires chiropractic care. As long as a herniated disc compresses nerves in the back, patients will experience pain. Adjustments are a safe and effective technique for restoring proper alignment. Decompression therapy treatments help created space between compressed vertebrae. This new space allows a herniated disc to return to proper alignment.
Poor office ergonomics can also lead to chronic back and neck strain, and may even exacerbate headaches and migraines. If your office chair is too high or too low, it can be difficult to properly reach the keyboard for typing. Long hours spent hunched over a computer can lead to serious back and neck problems. If you are experiencing neck pain or back pain, our chiropractors will provide postural correction and ergonomic recommendations. Simple adjustments to seat height, phone and computer placement, and desk organization can reduce unnecessary strain on the neck and back muscles.
In addition to chiropractic care, we also offer acupuncture treatments for pain relief. Our acupuncturist, Dr. Griffin, has been treating herniated disc patients for over 10 years. Our patients frequently report that the addition of acupuncture treatments to their regular spinal adjustments enhances overall pain relief.
All Star Health offers massage therapy treatments for workers’ compensation injuries. Therapeutic massage can help relieve sore or stiff muscles, reduce stress, and unlock tension trapped deep within muscle fascia. If you have spent long hours hunched over a computer screen, massage treatments can do wonders for relieving chronic back and neck pain.
