How Work Injury Treatment Works at Avon Chiropractic Health Center
Worker’s compensation is a form of insurance that may cover medical expenses and lost wages for employees who are injured while at work. If a patient becomes injured while on the job, they should seek care from Dr. Joanne and Dr. Joelle immediately. Locating the source of the work injury right away could mean the difference between fixing an issue and living with it long term.
Treatments for Work Injuries at our Avon Chiropractic Center
Chiropractic Care: Regular chiropractic adjustments with Dr. Joanne and Dr. Joelle provide effective pain relief for a variety of conditions. They provide patients of all ages with a non-surgical alternative to healing pain and injury. Various chiropractic adjustment techniques are used at the practice in order to remove pressure from spinal nerves caused by vertebrae misalignment.
Exercise Rehab: A full rehabilitation and therapeutic exercise program is essential to ensure a patient’s full recovery and to prevent further injury. These exercises can include muscle stretching, joint mobility exercises and muscle strengthening exercises. Correction of muscle imbalance problems around the shoulder, hip or knee are addressed effectively with exercise rehabilitation guided by a trained professional. Core stability muscles are also an important part of the treatment of chronic lower back pain.
Acupuncture: During an acupuncture session, Dr. Joanne and Dr. Joelle insert sterilized needles just under the skin or deeper in order to reach muscle tissue. These needles stimulate sensory nerves under the skin and the body’s muscles. This stimulation allows the body to produce natural pain-relieving endorphins, which are the substances most responsible for the beneficial effects of acupuncture.
Dry Needling: Dry needling is a skilled intervention that uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular, and connective tissues for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments.
Cold Laser Therapy: Cold laser therapy is a non-invasive, painless, low level laser. The laser stimulates damaged tissues, promotes natural healing in the body, and provides relief from pain and inflammation. Laser therapy is a proven technique used across the world. It is extremely popular as it provides effective pain relief without the need for surgery or medication.
