How Work Injury Treatment Works at McAndrews Chiropractic Clinic
Worker’s compensation is a form of insurance that may cover medical expenses and lost wages for employees who are injured while at work. If a patient becomes injured while on the job, they should seek care from Dr. Lederman immediately. Locating the source of the work injury right away could mean the difference between fixing an issue and living with it long term.
Treatments for Work Injuries at Our Wheaton Chiropractic Center
Chiropractic Care: Regular chiropractic adjustments with Dr. Lederman provide effective pain relief for a variety of conditions. He provide patients of all ages with a non-surgical alternative to healing pain and injury. Mckenzie method and other adjustment techniques are used at the practice in order to remove irritation to spinal nerves.
McKenzie Method: Mckenzie method is a complete program of assessment, treatment and prevention strategies (including exercise) that are determined by Dr. Lederman depending on the unique needs of each patient. With the mckenzie approach, exercise and other rehabilitation modalities are used to extend the spine. This can help centralize the patient’s pain by moving it away from the extremities (leg or arm) to the back. Centralizing the pain allows the source of the pain to be treated rather than the symptoms.
Rehabilitation: A full rehabilitation and therapeutic exercise program is essential to ensure a patient’s full recovery and to prevent further injury. These exercises can include muscle stretching, joint mobility exercises and muscle strengthening exercises. Correction of muscle imbalance problems around the shoulder, hip or knee are addressed effectively with exercise rehabilitation guided by a trained professional. Core stability muscles are also an important part of the treatment of chronic lower back pain.
Diagnostic Imaging Referrals: At McAndrews Chiropractic Clinic, Dr. Joshua Lederman refers his patients to an off-site facility if any x-rays, MRI scans or CT scans are needed. He refers all of his patients to Community Imaging which is also located in Wheaton, IL!
Massage Therapy: Massage therapy plans are tailored to each patient. Techniques may include stroking, tapping, kneading, vibration, friction, compression, rocking and different forms of pressure to the muscles. During a session, some specific motions and vibrations can be applied with mechanical devices. Oil, lotions and powders are also used to reduce friction.
Electrical Stimulation/Ultrasound: Electrical stimulation and ultrasound are physical therapy modalities used by Dr. Lederman at McAndrews Chiropractic Clinic. Electric muscle stim is used to stimulate muscle contractions using electrodes hooked up to an electric stimulation machine. These contractions help to manage inflammation, strengthen the muscle and control pain. Ultrasound therapy uses sound waves to deliver deep heat to the pain areas of the body. As a result of ultrasound, patients often experience a reduction of pain, swelling and stiffness in addition to pain-free movement and increased circulation.
