Corporate Wellness Initiative Northern New Jersey
Intrinsic Wellness is proud to offer onsite chiropractic, physical therapy, and acupuncture care for businesses in Northern New Jersey and New York City. Intrinsic Wellness proudly serves the communities of Westwood, New Jersey and West New York (WNY) with physical therapy, chiropractic and acupuncture care. We understand that sometimes its impossible with schedules to get to the doctor. Let us bring the doctors to you!
Our goal is to provide safe, cost-effective chiropractic care to accommodate the fast-pace environment in a corporate office setting. Our office handles all aspects of care for the patient, from scheduling to billing.
Why Offer On Site Wellness Care?
Research has shown that the 8 hour workday is literally killing us. It is now known that sitting for more than 2 hours at a time increases our risk for cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes and even cancer. The research has shown that sitting for long periods has the same damaging effects as smoking. Chiropractic care has been shown to reduce many of the effects of sitting by restoring proper motion to the spine and restoring the brain-body connection via the nervous system. Chiropractors are also trained in exercises and stretches that can keep the spine in proper alignment and that counteract the effects of sitting.
Chiropractic care can benefit any patient (even patients without pain)! It has been shown that an adjustment can balance the sympathetic (fight or flight) and parasympathetic (rest and digest) autonomic nervous system. When we are chronically stressed, our bodies think that we are in a “survival” mode. This survival mode, a.k.a sympathetic dominance, is categorized by an increase in adrenalyn, which will increase our heart rate, breathing, and many times make us very emotionally irritable. This state of chronic stress can lead to a wide-variety of diseases including heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
Offering your employees regular chiropractic care will increase production, decrease healthcare costs, and overall make them happier people. Anyone who has sat at a desk for a long period of time understands how mentally and physically draining it can be. Taking a 10 minute rest has been proven to increase productivity and creative thinking.
What We Offer
Chiropractic Adjustments- Chiropractic adjustments aim to restore the proper motion and alignment of the spine by using a small force generated by the chiropractor or an adjusting instrument.
Soft-Tissue Therapy- When our spines are misaligned, the surrounding soft-tissues (muscles, tendons, fascia) must harden to support a now unstable spine. These changes will result in trigger points or “knots” in the muscle. The muscles will feel hard to the touch and many times will also be tender.
Soft-Tissue Therapy aims to reduce these knots in the muscle and allow the muscles to return to being soft and more fluid. Soft-Tissue therapies include massage, stretching and instrument assisted percussion. There are multiple soft-tissue techniques a chiropractor can use including techniques with their hands or pulsating devices
Physical Therapy Rehab Stretches and Exercises- It is important that we regular stretch certain muscles that are overactive from sitting for long periods of time and exercise muscles that are inhibited for long periods of time. A chiropractor will guide a patient on what exercises to use and what to avoid based on their presentation.
How Corporate Wellness Can Work In Your Office
-All we need from the hosting office is a small space to work. This can be a conference room or even an empty closet. We would ask that before our first visit to the office, the hosting office would help us by filling up our schedule with interested patients for the first time. This allows us to operate smoothly and insure all of the intake forms can be completed before hand.
-We are 100% paperless with digital intake forms and 2-way text message reminders. Making the visit quick and painless to remember.
-We will require 20 minutes for the first visit and 10 minutes for follow up visits.
-Most Insurance Accepted. Affordable Cash Plans available for people with limited chiropractic coverage
-Claims and billing are all done electronically and dealt with by our office. For copayments and deductibles, patients can pay with cash or opt to have us store and use a credit or debit card on file. Insurance issues are handled 100% by our office.
-Our office carries both liability and malpractice insurance. Patients will sign a release, releasing the hosting company from any responsibility if a problem should arise while under care.
