I know there is so much controversy between chiropractic and medical care, but if it were not for chiropractic I would still be in pain. A car accident left me with constant lower back pain. I tried everything from painkillers to preparing to have surgery. I heard stories from my friends who had surgery and to this day wish they never had it. So I decided to go to a chiropractor before the surgery and I am so thankful that I did. My back pains are gone and I am living my life to the fullest and pain free.

85% of the population will suffer debilitating back pain or a repetitive stress injury. (OSHA 2002 Report)

Health Focus is dedicated to decreasing the risk of injury both at home and at work.  As part of our featured services, we offer a community education program for local businesses.  The program focuses on educating local business' employees on how to prevent and avoid work-related injuries.  Each workshop is an interactive talk, which takes into account the unique needs of each business and setting.

The objective of this workshop is to provide participants with commonsense approaches to injury prevention.  It gives employees the opportunitiy to have a quick and general evaluation of their own posture, behaviors, work environments, and homes and apply these practical techniques to mitigate dangers to their musculoskeletal system.  It discusses workplace safety and comfort, placing an emphasis on the prevention of repetitve stress and lifting injuries of the lower back.  We also offer complimentary chair massages as part of the program, done by one of our liscenced massage therapists.

Information gained by employees includes proper lifting techniques, OSHA-approved stretches that help strengthen weak spots and relax tense areas, tips to lower and control blood pressure and cholesterol, relaxation techniques to help keep stress levels down, and ways to prevent and/or alleviate problems and behaviors that may lead to future injuries. 

Participants' use and practice of these newly learned techniques will ultimately lessen the incidence of home and work related injuries, thus reducing worker's compensation costs and employee absenteeism.  Participants will gain a command of practical injury prevention and back safety, and will be able to apply this information across all of their activities of daily living--helping lead your team of employees to becoming a healthier staff!

If interested, please call or email our office to schedule a date that Health Focus, P.C. could come visit your place of employment.
