At Touch Stone Rehabilitation & Health Center, we know that being in an accident can affect all areas of your health and well-being. Whether it's car accident injuries or work-related injuries, treatment from our caring Staten Island chiropractor, our rehabilitation physician and the professional staff can help you get back to doing the things you enjoy as quickly as possible. With a special interest in Staten Island physical therapy, Dr. Angelo DiMaggio provides holistic treatment through chiropractic care, pain management and rehabilitation services.
When patients come to see our chiropractor for relief after experiencing car accident injuries or work related injuries, Dr. DiMaggio first performs a careful examination to determine the extent and severity of the injuries incurred. He may then recommend a course of rehabilitation which combines the best of holistic treatment approaches such as acupuncture, reflexology, physical therapy and rehabilitation services to treat each patient's individual needs.
As a chiropractor, Dr. DiMaggio's core approach for car accident injuries or work related injuries follows a pattern of relief care, corrective care and wellness care. He works to help relieve the immediate source of pain, and then focuses on restoring mobility and improving muscle strength. When a patient is feeling better, the doctor also provides insight and recommendations for a healthy lifestyle that will help the patient live as pain-free as possible.
Patients with car accident injuries may be suffering from whiplash and soft tissue injuries. The immediate goal of chiropractic care is to reduce swelling and inflammation so the patient doesn't experience a lifetime of neck pain or back pain. Our chiropractor works to restore the natural alignment of the neck and back, and doesn't just prescribe prescription pain medications or a brace that only serve to mask the pain without correcting the underlying issues. He wants you to enjoy long-lasting relief with a return of as much relief as possible, given the severity of each patient's specific injuries.
Work related injuries come in many shapes and forms - patients may have back strain from construction work or lifting heavy loads, carpal tunnel syndrome from overuse of a computer or other repetitive motion injuries, pain from a trip or fall or any other type of injury which makes it impossible to work at full force. Dr. DiMaggio may provide chiropractic services or he may refer you to Dr. Christopher Perez, our rehabilitation physician, who treats accident injuries that affect how you move. Together, they will diagnose your problem, help you manage your pain and improve your life and your work performance without surgery.
We also work with insurance companies to document the extent of the injuries sustained for any pending claims. Accident injuries can be a source of great pain and discomfort. At Touch Stone Rehabilitation and Health Center in Staten Island, our main goal is to help you return as quickly as possible to an active, healthy and fulfilling life.
