At Bezak Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, we are dedicated to relieving pain and restoring patients to optimal health using holistic methods and without relying on drugs or invasive procedures. One such way that our practice treats pains and ailments is with cryotherapy.
Pain and muscle spasms are common responses to soft tissue injuries, and if you’re suffering, cryotherapy can provide pain relief and sooth irritation in the injured tendon, ligament or muscle. This simple and inexpensive technique treats pain with the application of ice, cold towels, ice massages and compresses to reduce the temperature of affected tissues. Surface cooling of the irritated area constricts your blood vessels, numbs the tissue and makes it difficult for muscles to hold contraction, so cryotherapy can effectively reduce nerve transmission and relax muscle spasms for temporary relief.
Cryotherapy can also reduce swelling or inflammation after an injury. If applied after trauma, the injury and resultant pain can be reduced and largely prevented. For maximum effectiveness, cold compresses should be applied frequently for short periods of time.
If you have recently suffered an injury or are experiencing acute pain, it is important to receive care as soon as possible. Drugs are not the only way to treat pain. You can stop by our office for beneficial and holistic treatment, as well as continue cryotherapy at home.

Work Injuries

If you’ve been injured at work and traditional medicine isn’t doing enough to help you, chiropractic is a great solution for dealing with injuries and their underlying causes. While medical doctors tend to treat symptoms, chiropractors treat the root of your pain. At Bezak Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, we work with workers compensation cases in Greenbelt, MD to heal your body and help you achieve maximum health.
The difference between treating the symptoms of an injury and fixing the underlying cause is the difference between temporary pain and a chronic issue. By using physical therapy exercises and adjustments, your chiropractor can increase your wellness and treat what medicine often can’t.
Chiropractic and physical therapy are known to help a variety of injuries and disorders by treating the spine and nervous system and muscles directly. The alignment of the body is also addressed, which has a profound effect on the entire body. By removing impairments from the nervous system, such as subluxations and misalignment, the body is able to communicate between its systems better and heal itself from its injuries and ailments. From carpal tunnel syndrome to joint, back and neck pain, chiropractic treatment and physical therapy can help you recover from your work injuries.
If you are looking to begin your healing process after a work injury, it’s time to schedule an appointment with us by calling 301-220-0496. For more information, visit

Sciatica is not a stand-alone medical condition but rather a set of symptoms described as persistent pain along the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back through the buttocks and into the lower leg, is the longest and widest nerve in the body, and it controls the muscles of the lower leg and provides sensation to the thighs, legs and feet. A common form of lower back pain, sciatica can range from radiating pain along the nerve to a dull ache to a mild tingling to a burning sensation.
If you are experiencing sciatica in Greenbelt, MD, you can come to Bezak Chiropractic and Rehabilitation for treatment. We offer a non-invasive, conservative, drug-free treatment plan that allows you to treat your pain in a holistic and natural way.

Depending on the underlying cause of your sciatica, treatment can include spinal adjustments, rehabilitative exercises, ice and heat therapy, ultrasound and electrical muscle stimulation.
