Invest in yourself

Want to Understand Chiropractic?

Then be aware of these 7 principles:

Your body is under the control of the brain and nervous system as long as you are alive.

Your brain is protected by the skull, and your spinal cord is protected by the spinal column.

Spinal bones move out of normal alignment and interrupt your normal nerve flow.

This disruption of normal nerve flow is referred to as a vertebral subluxation.

It is vital to know that subluxations can be silent; causing problems long before symptoms occur.

Chiropractors find subluxations, and by preforming a spinal adjustment, facilitate a return of normal nerve supply.

Normal nerve supply results in a greater expression of LIFE for you!

What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints. Massage therapy is a clinically-oriented healthcare option that helps alleviate the discomfort associated with every day occupational stresses, muscular over-use and many chronic pain conditions.
Massage therapy should only be provided by a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT). An RMT is a primary healthcare provider in Ontario and anyone may visit an RMT of their choice.
Massage therapy can be used as a treatment for both acute and chronic conditions. RMTs work with a wide variety of patients in the treatment of illness, injury rehabilitation and disability.
The services of an RMT are not covered under the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP); however, many extended health benefit plans will cover all or part of the services provided by an RMT. A referral or prescription is not required to visit an RMT, although some insurance companies may require this. Massage therapy treatments may also be reimbursed by automobile insurance companies, if the client was in a motor vehicle accident, or in the case of workplace injuries, by the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB).

Benefits of Massage Therapy

Massage therapy treatments provided by a Registered Massage Therapist can offer significant benefits for a variety of conditions and for diverse patient populations. Whether you need to have a moment of relaxation, reduce muscle tension or attain relief from chronic pain, massage therapy can enhance your overall well-being.

  • Reducing or eliminating pain

What is Work Injury Rehabilitation

Work injury rehabilitation means helping an injured worker back to safe and suitable work at the earliest possible time. It’s about finding the best ways for the worker to keep their valuable work skills with the aim to return to the job they had before their injury or another suitable job. If the worker is unable to return to their pre-injury job soon after their injury, a suitable duties program is developed to help the worker return to work safely over a period of time.

What is Work Injury Rehabilitation

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Work injury rehabilitation may involve:

  • a suitable duties program
  • on-the-job training to acquire new job skills
  • Special assistance for severely injured workers.

Work injury rehabilitation can reduce the social and financial cost of the workplace injury to the worker, employer, and the Bowmanville community. But most importantly, it helps injured workers get back to work.

What should employers and workers do?

An employer must take all reasonable steps to assist or provide an injured worker with rehabilitation for the period for which the worker is entitled to compensation.

What are the benefits?

Workplace rehabilitation helps both injured workers and employers.

Work Injury Rehabilitation Programs at Spinewise Clinic are well structured and goal-oriented programs designed to help you identify work capacities, regain functional skills and return to work after an injury.

Tips for Work Injuries

Tips-Work InjuriesThere are athletes who prefer alternative treatments like the ones offered by chiropractors for sports injuries for a number of reasons. Firstly, they prefer a more natural way for injury treatment. Second, alternative treatments are non-surgical and therefore the potential risk is low.

And third, in most cases, treatments from chiropractors are cheaper when compared to traditional treatment procedures offered by mainstream doctors.

Alternative treatments from chiropractic doctors

If you visit a chiropractic clinic these days, you will notice that they offer wide selections of sports injury alternative treatments for sports injuries – or even injuries we acquired in our daily lives – designed for different purposes. Spinewise offer best services and treatments, so you can call on (905) 623-8388 for Work Injury Treatment in Bowmanville.

Active Release Technique (ART) – non-invasive, very safe, has no side effects, and is considered to be one alternative that has a record of producing effective results. With the use of this technique, chiropractors give their patients specific exercises, postural recommendations, and lecture about the mechanism of injury that will help avoid it in the future.

Effective and skilled home prescribing can go far beyond treating mild injuries. The potential of doing well comes down to just how powerful and effective homeopathy is, as well as your services to harness this power.
