When you’re in pain after a work injury, it’s tempting to rely on medications to help you get back on your feet again, but there’s a better way. Chiropractic care and physical rehabilitation techniques offer long-term benefits that you simply can’t get with pain medication alone. If you are injured on the job, choose the natural path to healing with James Sheehan, DC, and the advanced care specialists at Pro Rehab Chiropractic and Rehabilitation in Delaware.
Our team has eight convenient locations in northern Delaware to make it easy for you to recover after a work injury and get relief from what potentially could become chronic pain. We’ve put together a shortlist of five reasons why chiropractic adjustments and physical rehabilitation are the best ways to get back on your feet.
1. A natural approach to relieving pain and healing after an injury
Sure, pain meds offer a quick fix for pain relief, but do you ultimately want to rely on prescription medications long term? For a natural approach to healing and relieving pain after a work injury, chiropractic adjustments and physical rehabilitation offer relief from symptoms now, and can keep you healthier in the long run. And you won’t have to worry about becoming dependent – or worse, addicted! – to prescription pain medications.
2. Effective treatment for the underlying cause of your pain
Dr. Sheehan and the skilled team of chiropractors at Pro Rehab Chiropractic and Rehabilitation customize your treatments based on the underlying cause of your pain. Depending on the type of injury you have, they tailor gentle, chiropractic adjustments and physical exercises or stretches to accommodate your individual needs. Over time, your body heals itself as a result of having your spine and other joints in proper alignment.
Treating the underlying causes of your pain helps restore your body to its proper alignment and provides long-term relief from painful and debilitative symptoms. You gain mobility and flexibility, and you’ll feel better overall.
To keep you comfortable during adjustments, the team at Pro Rehab Chiropractic and Rehabilitation uses the advanced technology of the PulStar® System to adjust your spine safely, and gently, without cracking or popping your joints into place. It’s highly effective, especially after an on-the-job injury.
3. A wide variety of physical therapies and techniques based on your personal goals for recovery
Recovering from an accident or injury shouldn’t be a one-size-fits-all process, but rather a highly individualized experience based on your needs and goals. That’s why we offer a variety of therapies as part of your rehabilitation plan, including:
- Therapeutic massage
- Joint mobilization
- Electrical stimulation
- Ultrasound therapy
- Therapeutic exercises
- Dry hydrotherapy
- Chiropractic adjustments
- Compression therapy
Your treatment plan may include any of these therapies, and others, so you can get back on your feet as quickly and comfortably as possible. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff is with you every step of the way to encourage you as you recover at a pace that’s comfortable for you.
4. Pain relief for many different types of workplace injuries
Slips, trips, falls, and muscle strains are some of the most common workplace injuries, and repetitive stress injuries aren’t far behind. Fortunately, we offer solutions for all of these types of acute mishaps as well as chronic conditions, including:
- Back injuries and back pain
- Leg pain from muscle or tendon injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Neck strain and injury
- Shoulder pain and injury
- Ligament injuries
- Knee pain
- Herniated discs
If your injury is musculoskeletal, as many workplace injuries are, we can help you heal naturally and regain mobility so you can get back to work and to leisure activities you enjoy.
5. Help managing all the red tape, paperwork, and legalities of a workplace injury
The amount of reports, insurance claims, and legal paperwork you may have to submit after a work-related injury is almost as painful as the injury itself. Our skilled team not only helps you recover physically after an accident, but we also help you deal with insurance companies and legal concerns. Our knowledgeable staff has the experience you need to recover, both physically and financially, from your on-the-job injury.
We let you focus on physical rehabilitation while we assist with filing insurance claims and other necessary protocols.
