  • Headache (5.4%) was the most common pain condition prompting lost productive time: followed by back pain (3.2%), arthritis pain (2%) and other musculoskeletal pain (2%).
  • Overall, workers lost an average of 4.6 hours per week of productive time due to a pain condition.
  • Other musculoskeletal pain (5.5 hours/week) and arthritis or back pain (5.2 hours/week) produced the largest amounts of lost productive time.

Low Back Pain

New studies show a direct correlation between adolescent back pain often known as “growing pains” and continued adult-onset back pain. 50% of youngsters with low back pain will suffer a lifetime of repetitive occurrences.

Sciatica

forest_lake_chiropracticThe sciatic nerve in the longest nerve in the body; it starts in the low back, courses through the pelvic area, through the hip and buttocks, and down the back of the leg. Pain, numbness, tingling and burning sensations have been known to radiate along its course. Vertebral misalignment, pelvic or sacral misalignment, herniated discs or inflammations of muscles in the area are the most common causes of sciatica. See what Dr. Gerard has to say about Sciatica.

“It’s wonderful to no longer experience the pain caused by the pressure on my sciatic nerve, I am looking forward to NO MORE PAIN!” – Joellyn

Whiplash Injuries

The speed of the impact does not predict the risk of whiplash injury. Any accident even minor “fender-benders” can cause serious conditions and issues. Latest research says that accidents that occur between 5 and 10 mph are enough to cause double whiplash. Pain can develop months or years after the accident.

By far the best chiropractor I’ve ever used. They customize a plan just for you and don’t use a one size fits all approach. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else!! Thank you!!!

I have been experiencing low back pain for at least 10 rememberable years and decided on a whim to try chiropractic care at Lakewoods. I had never been to a chiropractor before so I had no expectations that it would work or not but after just my first adjustment I had instant relief for the first time in 10 years. I have since been super impressed with how everything has been explained to me and how my care plan has been formed. The staff are all very kind and have been very helpful as well!
