Occupational Health, Safety and Chiropractic

 

  • back-pain-doctor-forest-lakeThe total annual incremental cost of health care due to pain ranges from $560 billion to $635 billion (in 2011 dollars) in the United States, which combines the medical costs of pain care and the economic costs related to disability days and lost wages and productivity.
  • Over half (52.7%) of the workforce surveyed reported having headache, back pain, arthritis, or other musculoskeletal pain in the past two weeks, and 12.7% of all workforce lost productive time in a two-week period due to pain.
  • 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.

Great place to heal!! Exceeded my expectations. My only complaint is I didn't come sooner!! After seeing three doctors with a solution of cortisone injections in my back it was time to try something more natural. While I've always understood the importance of chiropractic care I've never fully tried it. Everything they have done here is tailored for me! I started feeling better by the 3rd adjustment! I haven't taken a single pain med! Praise God!! Don't wait to get the care you need!! I wish I hadn't. Five stars and more!! Bonus....I was given all the equipment I need to do my stretches at home along with an in depth nutritional support system! Amazing!
