Injured at work? Find NYS WCB Authorized Physicians specializing in CHIROPRACTIC that treat work-related accidents and illness.
Chiropractors primarily provide treatment to improve mobility in different joints of the body and relieve pain. They use hands-on techniques to deliver adjustments, give education on exercises to perform to assist in your restoration of function, and can guide you in the right direction for any massage professionals that can further your plan of care.
People who seek chiropractic care have often suffered from a traumatic incident like an auto accident, work-related injury, or repetitive strain injury that has affected the joints and tissues of the body. These tissues range from muscles, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. Injury can be related to a fall, car accident, or may develop over time due to improper posture, repetitive strain injury, or poor body mechanics.
Chiropractors perform manipulations to the joints that can help you function with less pain. Commonly, persons that experience back pain will seek treatment from a chiropractor and will undergo spinal manipulations.
Spinal manipulations are used to improve a joint’s mobility and decreased stiffness. This means it can help reduce your pain while also allowing you to move more and perform at the level you were before the injury.
Chiropractors work with the patient and other health care providers in order to treat the condition most effectively. They may decide to deliver an intervention or provide education, or they may refer you to another professional to address your symptoms and pain. Most New York chiropractors accept workers’ compensation, medical liens, and no-fault insurance.
