Understanding Personal Injuries
A personal injury is any physical injury a person endures to their body. For instance, you may slip and fall while at work or at a grocery store as a result of a wet floor. You can also experience a personal injury if you're in a car accident and hurt your neck, back, or shoulder, which can result in whiplash. Personal injuries are also common in sports. You may twist your ankle, endure a sprain while dribbling a ball on the court, or experience tendinitis from respectively saving a tennis ball.
Chiropractic Care for Personal Injuries
When you arrive at our office, we will perform an examination to determine the root cause of your injury before recommending treatment. If needed, we may suggest imaging to evaluate the internal structure of the region affected by the injury.
Our personal injury chiropractor will then create a treatment plan for your specific needs and to help you heal. Your treatment may consist of chiropractic alignments, which can correct subluxations in the spine and ease the pressure on the surrounding tissues and nerves. These techniques can also improve blood flow in the affected area, which provides healthy nutrients and can help you heal.
Your personal injury treatment may also include chiropractic exercise. Our chiropractor will provide gentle stretches that focus on the injured area. The exercises may increase in intensity and in the number of reps to slowly encourage healing and improve function and flexion. With this treatment, we want to help you return to an active lifestyle and the sport that you love.
