I got injured at work. I honestly did not think it was as bad as it was, because I only felt mild pain at first. I did take some pain pills for it, so that numbed the pain a bit as well. When I woke up the following morning, I was surprised at the level of pain that I was in. When I called into work to explain that I needed to take the day off, my boss told me to see the chiropractor in Huntington NY that the company uses for workman comp issues.
He was not telling me this to protect the company, though that was a side benefit to it for him. He told me because he knew that i was in serious pain if I was calling off, and he also said that the chiropractic care at Waterfront Chiropractic is second to none. He uses them personally, and that was all the recommendation that I needed to call and make an appointment. One nice thing about it right off the bat is that I was able to go in that day. When I explained that it was a slip and fall injury that happened at work, they squeezed me in for a late morning appointment.
Even though they had to squeeze me in, that did not mean that they rushed me through the appointment. The chiropractor was really great, taking a lot of time with me and answering all of my questions. I did have some X-rays done just to rule out a few things, and the good news is that I just needed to have some adjustments done to alleviate the pain. I ended up missing the entire week of work because it was not something that was able to fixed immediately. After three adjustments that week though, I felt good enough to go back. I am like my boss now too. I no longer need them for my work injury, but I continue to go for personal reasons now!
