Most work injuries are caused by overuse and repetitive stress injuries. Over time, small tasks done with poor posture can lead to acute and chronic pain, which can result in reduced worker productivity, lost time from work, disability, and an inability to perform job tasks.
Dr. Welker will use palpation, orthopedic testing, and neurological testing to determine your specific diagnosis. Once the doctor has determined your diagnosis he will explain it to you. If you should have any questions regarding your diagnosis, please ask the doctor for further information.

We have several massage therapists trained in injury care and therapeutic massage. Massage therapy aids in reducing inflammation, softening scar tissue and increasing blood flow which reduce heal time and help with pain reduction.
Cold Laser Therapy is a new medical treatment that uses low-level lasers. This drug-free therapy stimulates damaged tissues, which hastens healing, reduces pain and inflammation. The healing and relief provided by cold laser are due to several mechanisms. It triggers the body to heal itself and stimulates the mitochondria, which encourages regeneration and cell repair. The laser can penetrate up to four inches into the tissue to promote healing right at the source of the injury. It provides relief from arthritis by eliminating pain and reducing inflammation. It also helps increase joint mobility and improves immune cell efficiency.
Spinal decompression allows your disc to reduce inflammation, increase blood flow, reduce pressure on nerves and stretch healing scar tissue so that the disc returns to normal function.
Rehabilitation is an important part of the healing process, it aids in strengthening and returning muscles and joints to their normal movements. At Bend Spinal Care we work with your body to get you back to the activities you love.

What patients are saying.....
"Bend Spinal Care is an amazing place! Brad is exceptional at his craft; he diagnosed my back injury and knew exactly how to treat it. I appreciate the extra time he spends to fully understand the injury and trace it to its origins.
