Chiropractic Services

Chiropractic treatment is a healthcare approach focused on disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Treatment centers on a hands-on manipulation of the problem area, most notably the spine. By mechanically adjusting the spinal column with diversified and non-force techniques, chiropractors work to effectively reduce or eliminate pain and restore function and balance to adults and children.

With a team of experienced chiropractors, CHG serves Long Island, from our locations in Oceanside and Valley Stream communities in Nassau County. Our chiropractic care focuses not only on the symptoms at hand, but also the body as a whole. Although spinal adjustment is the most common treatment used, chiropractors may use a variety of techniques to affect the joints and muscle tissues of the body.

We treat:

  • Neck, back and shoulder pain
  • Strains and sprains
  • Golf/tennis elbow
  • Vertebral subluxation
  • Sports injury and strengthening
  • Whiplash
  • Sciatic pain relief
  • Arthritis stiffness
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraines
  • Scoliosis
  • TMJ
  • And more

Therapeutic Modalities:

Whether treating back pain, neck pain, or chronic headaches our Oceanside chiropractors rely on several powerful techniques to restore the relationship between structure and function of the human body. These allow the patient to take advantage of the powerful self-healing ability of the body, without relying on outside substances to treat their condition.

Treatment methods include:

  • Spinal Manipulation: Also known as a “spinal adjustment.” spinal manipulation involves safely moving a joint beyond its normal range of motion. The goal is to achieve spinal alignment, improve joint function, and promote overall better health.
  • Ultrasound: Ultrasound treatments deliver “deep heat” therapy to certain target tissues in the body. Using special sound waves, ultrasound works to increase blood flow, reduce pain and decrease muscle stiffness.
  • Electrical Muscle Stimulation: Transcutaneous Electrical Muscle Stimulation (TEMS) uses low-frequency electrical pulses to cause muscles to contract. Often, this simple procedure can reduce muscle tension and increase blood flow to the site.
  • Nutritional Support: Our highly qualified chiropractor has a Masters Degree in Nutrition and is trained to work with patients by implementing various weight reduction programs which incorporates vitamins and herbs.
  • Exercise Therapy: Exercise therapy uses specific stretching and strength-training exercises to train damaged muscles, increase mobility, and strengthen the muscles surrounding the spine. For rehabilitation patients, exercise therapy is often incorporated to hasten the healing process.

Chiropractic Care for Work-Related Injuries

If you work a physically demanding job, you may have experienced a work-related injury. Work-related injuries are especially pernicious as they can affect your earnings in addition to causing a great deal of discomfort and pain.

Comprehensive Healthcare Group should always be your first choice whether you need a car accident chiropractor or physical rehab for a work-related injury. Contact us today to speak to a chiropractor in Valley Stream, NY!

Chiropractor Services for Work Injuries

Work injuries are common in professions requiring high physical exertion and effort. Industries and jobs where work injuries might be more common include manufacturing, construction, landscaping, and other manual labor settings. Even office workers are at risk of work injuries from repetitive motion stress or poor ergonomics. 

The goal of chiropractic services after a work injury is to minimize back and neck pain and facilitate healing so that you can achieve comfort and work more productively. We take a personalized approach to create treatment plans specific to each patient’s body, mind, and needs. 

Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Below are just a few of the benefits of getting regular chiropractic care from Comprehensive Healthcare Group after sustaining a work-related injury. 

Less Pain

Above all, chiropractic care can reduce the amount of back pain you feel while going about your day. Back pain from a fall at work or wrist pain from carpal tunnel can be exhausting and distracting, even if you are not currently engaging in an activity. 

Our chiropractic treatments engage affected muscle groups to reduce pain and restore functionality. One 2004 study showed that two to six weeks of chiropractic care reduced lower back pain more effectively than placebos and muscle relaxants. 

Improved Range of Motion

One of the most common joint or muscle injury symptoms is restricted motion and flexibility. Our chiropractic sessions can focus on building strength in injured areas to restore your range of motion. 

For example, regular therapy sessions can restore and strengthen shoulder joints, improving flexibility and functionality. A 2012 literature review found that seven out of nine highly influential studies showed spinal manipulations have a significant positive effect on spinal range of motion and movement

Sleep Better

Pain and discomfort from a work-related injury can affect your ability to sleep. Fatigue due to lack of sleep can seep into other areas of your life, affecting work, school, and personal relationships. There is some evidence that chiropractic and medical care, including manual massage therapy and osteopathic manipulation, might improve sleep quality.

Reduce Opioid Reliance

Opioid pain relievers are a common prescription for pain management, but opioids are highly addictive and prone to abuse. The pain reduction from chiropractic care and physical therapy can reduce a patient’s reliance on opioid medication, lowering the risks of opioid abuse or addiction.  

Improve Mood

Pain and discomfort from chronic injuries can also negatively affect a patient’s mood and attitude. One case study showed that a nine-week chiropractic regimen improved subjective evaluations of mood and well-being in a 72-year-old participant. By reducing pain and discomfort, patients have less stress and can focus on other positive mood alteration techniques. 

Stop Headaches

Radiative pain up the spine into the base of the neck is a common symptom of a lower back injury. Chiropractic care can reduce radiative pain in the spine and loosen muscles, mitigating the onset of tension headaches. A 2016 study found that six to eight cervical manipulation sessions reduce the incidence of chronic headaches compared to other methods.
