Creating Healthy Work Spaces, Empowering Healthy Workers

For three decades Dr. Fishman has been treating industrial and tech workers in the Bay Area. Working within the private health, workers compensation and public health systems, he has gained a unique perspective on the causes and treatment of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction.

As an outgrowth of this passion, Dr. Fishman has developed and participated in programs that bring his skills and experience to the work place. These have included singular services such as chiropractic care as well as fully integrative multi-disciplinary onsite clinics. His focus is on the education of workers and the prevention of injuries. He knows that it is much more cost effective to prevent injuries than to treat them after they have occurred.

Dr. Fishman on "Sitting Is The New Smoking"

Testimonials:

"We have been using Dr. Fishman's services for the past two years and it has provided a wonderful benefit for our workers. His capability to provide onsite care at our office helps so many employees who may not have the time to leave the office for an appointment but who really need to keep their backs healthy! I've personally been a patient of Dr. Fishman's for 15 years and he goes the extra mile to make sure you are taken care of."

"We had the pleasure of having Dr. Fishman come to our office to do a (work) analysis for our staff at skinSALVATION acne clinic. As estheticians, we often hunch over clients while we are performing facials. in addition, we are in constant communication with clients via email and spend lots of time working on laptops. Dr. Fishman was able to give us recommendations about how to change our chairs, postures, and positions to reduce the amount of pressure on our spines…He had handouts prepared for all of us and even sent a follow-up email to summarize his suggestions for each of us individually. If you are a company (or single professional) who works on the computer or hands on with clients, I would highly recommend that you have Dr. Fishman come and do an analysis for you and your staff."

"After hearing that 'sitting is the new smoking', I knew I had to do something for my staff. As a seasonal business, I can't afford to have my staff out or even uncomfortable when we get crazy busy. I had Dr. Fishman look at each employee's work station, he changed out chairs, lowered keyboards, showed them exercises and generally made them more comfortable. They are all sitting a little straighter and are very enthusiastically implementing his suggestions. My employees are a very expensive investment and keeping that investment happy is important to me. Thank you, Ricky!"

"Dr. Fishman has been our onsite Chiropractor for the past four month and he is AWESOME. Dr. Fishman is knowledgeable and he takes the time to review your medical history and discuss the issues you are having. He listens, advises, and makes recommendations on how to fix your problem and how to prevent it from happening again. In addition to providing onsite appointments, Dr. Fishman gave a presentation on different stretching techniques that employees can do to prevent injuries in the workplace. He provided us with lots of techniques that I will encourage employees to use. I would recommend his services to any company that is looking to expand their wellness program."
