Lower Back Pain & Upper Back Pain from Work Injury
Work injuries consist of any physical injuries that happen while performing job related responsibilities. Although employers hopefully take preventive precautions, work injuries may still occur and rehabilitation is then required for employees to recover. It's important to understand that chiropractic care is covered by worker's compensation insurance should one fall victim to work injuries. Studies show that chiropractic care combined with occupational therapy is more effective and far more cost efficient than medical care. 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.

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. So if you have been injured in a car accident, while at work or have a general need for chiropractic wellness care, you should come visit us at DeCrescenzo Chiropractic.
Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts, which is concerned with human health and disease processes. Doctors of Chiropractic consider humans as an integrated being and give special attention to the physiological and biochemical aspects including structural, spinal, musculoskeletal, neurological, vascular, nutritional, emotional and environmental relationships.
The primary belief is in natural and conservative methods of health care. Doctors of DeCrescenzo Chiropractic have a deep respect for the human body's ability to heal itself.
Rehabilitation Chiropractic is a specialty branch of Chiropractic, which focuses on injuries and conditions unique to the active patient, as well as promoting principles of physical fitness. Restoring kinetic chain functioning is fundamental to the rehabilitation chiropractor. Manual methods are used, such as spinal manipulation, extremity manipulation and mobilization, myofascial release and muscle energy techniques. 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.
