LOWER BACK PAIN & UPPER BACK PAIN FROM WORK INJURY
Although employers hopefully take preventive precautions, work injuries may still occur and rehabilitation is then required for employees to recover. Should one fall victim to a work injury, it's important to understand that chiropractic care is covered by worker's compensation insurance. Studies show that chiropractic care combined with occupational therapy is more effective and far more cost-efficient than medication. If someone is a victim of job-related injuries like carpal tunnel or has experienced symptoms from performing repetitive movements, lifting, or other motions, it's in their best interest to visit a chiropractor immediately.
Restoring the chain in relation to normal motion functioning is fundamental to the rehabilitation chiropractor. Exercise programs focus on stabilizing posture by addressing issues such as balance, core, stretching, tightened postural muscles and strengthening reciprocally weakened muscles. The concepts can be applied to everyone, of course, not just the athlete.

Our Doctors of Chiropractic are medical professionals who diagnose and treat disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. They use traditional diagnostic testing methods (such as x-rays, MRI, and lab work) along with specific chiropractic techniques that involve hands-on manipulation of the articulations (joints) of the body. Although we work with Medical Doctors and focus on the Medical aspects of Chiropractic Medicine we also offer nutrition and healthy lifestyle counseling. Our chiropractors elect not to prescribe medications, and we do not perform surgery; however, all of our chiropractic rehab centers work closely with Medical Doctors and will refer a patient when necessary.
The primary belief is in natural and conservative methods of health care. The doctors of DeCrescenzo Chiropractic have a deep respect for the human body's ability to heal itself.
