Treatment for a Personal Injury
Atlantic Chiropractic and Rehabilitation in Chesapeake, Virginia helps patients manage pain using a whole-body approach. We value the importance of living well and pain-free. People are injured in their homes, on the job, on the road, at work, on vacation, and more. Dr. Santjer and the staff at Atlantic Chiropractic and Rehabilitation employ a variety of diagnostic and therapeutic tools to help minimize pain.
Back pain is the world's leading cause of disability. Torn and pulled, strained and sprained muscles and ligaments are the most common lower back pain problems. Spinal disc and joint problems can also cause mild to severe back pain. Common causes of back pain include improper lifting techniques and poor posture. Back injuries are often the result of high impact activities, sports, car accidents, and simple slip and fall accidents.
Chiropractic Care for Back Pain
Chiropractors are medically trained to understand spinal health. Dr. Santjer carefully assesses each patient. After performing some initial diagnostic tests, treatment and therapeutic plan will be developed that may include chiropractic adjustments, manipulations, massages, and physical therapy.
Patients frequently visit us for help with neck pain. Neck pain can be the result of something as simple as poor posture or sleeping wrong. However, it could be something more serious such as a herniated disc or degenerative disc disease.
If your neck pain persists after several days and is non-responsive to over-the-counter medications, you may want to seek professional advice from a chiropractor. Our doctor will perform spinal realignment and cervical manipulations to loosen the damaged tissues or joints. This form of treatment is extremely effective for relieving neck pain.
Proper posture while both active and sedentary is critical to your back and neck health. Workplace ergonomics have a direct impact on employee health and efficiency. Sitting in a chair that is at an inadequate height can aggravate muscles in the neck and back, causing an employee to become inefficient. Employees begin to focus on aches and pains rather than efficient work output.
Poor ergonomics can also cause carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, headaches, and fatigue. When you meet with Dr. Santjer about what's ailing you, he will address your workplace environment. We will provide some suggestions that will help alleviate your pain. Self-care techniques can also be discussed to help you manage your posture throughout the workday.
