Treatment

Our providers diagnose and treat patients of all ages to restore loss of function due to injury or disease, to enhance the quality of life for patients with chronic conditions, to correct abnormalities, and to educate patients in the prevention of injury or disease.  Our providers work together to ensure that every patient receives the treatment and services needed to return to a productive lifestyle.  In order to assess your condition and determine the best course of treatment for you, the provider may order x-rays or other tests before determining your diagnosis.

Health Tip

(HealthDay News) -- Lower back pain is among the leading causes of missed work in the United States. Fortunately, you can take steps to reduce your risk of hurting yourself.

The American Council on Exercise suggests these techniques for proper lifting:

  • Ask for help if you are trying to lift something that's too heavy.

  • Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, and stand as close as possible to the object you're lifting.

  • Bend at the knees, never at the waist. Lift with your legs, not your back.

  • Contract your abdominal muscles when you lift to support your back.

  • Hold the object close to your body as you lift.

  • Don't twist or bend while lifting a heavy object.
