Whether stemming from a car accident, an incident at work, or a sports injury, personal injuries can be a nuisance that can chronically plague an individual. Thankfully, our team of doctors and chiropractors can help to restore your body and your well-being by providing non-surgical pain-relief treatments for virtually any type of injury.
Types of Personal Injuries We Treat
Car Accidents – One of the most common complaints that patients seek care for after a car accident is muscle pain and soreness. Specifically, whiplash is notorious for causing stretching and tearing to the muscles and tendons within the neck. It occurs when there is a forceful and sudden whipping back and forth of the head. The impact of a car accident may also drive your neck and spine to shift out of alignment, as well as cause herniated discs. Though many individuals do not feel the immediate repercussions following an automobile accident, it is extremely important to seek medical attention, as the effects are often delayed.
Sports Injuries – Whether a sports injury is sustained quickly and unexpectedly or prolonged over time, chiropractic care can assist in the healing process. The neck and back are specifically prone to damage in athletes. For example, athletes who swim or do gymnastics are at risk for lower back injuries due to prolonged and repeated hyperextension. Those who run may have back and spine issues due to the recurring stress and impact running puts on the body. Other sports such as soccer and football are associated with injuries to the neck, spine, and head as well, mainly due to forceful impacts.
Workplace Injuries – Workplace injuries can involve tripping, slipping, or falling, resulting in neck, back, or spine injuries. Employees can also be struck by or caught in moving machinery or equipment. Further, overexertion resulting from stress or even strain caused by sitting at a computer may result in pain and call for treatment.
Our Pain Relief Treatment Options
Our treatments include manual therapy such as chiropractic adjustments, trigger point injections, and physical therapy. Often, they can result in sustained relief with only a brief course of treatment.
We provide gentle but effective manual adjustments if the cause of your pain is misaligned vertebrae. Our goal is to improve the range of motion within the spine while returning the spine to its natural alignment. The spine is a crucial structure that provides the main support for your entire body; therefore, it encourages the body’s natural ability to heal when the spine is properly aligned.
Trigger Point Injections
In this procedure, a doctor will identify the areas of discomfort within the body, most often, muscle areas that contain knots or extreme tightness (also known as trigger points). Because of their tightness and inflammation, these targeted areas may aggravate the nerves and muscles surrounding them. When a doctor injects a safe, anti-inflammatory into the site, it can relieve the pressure and associated discomfort. Injections take mere minutes in the doctor’s office and are known to cause very minimal discomfort.
Soft Tissue Rehabilitation
At times, soft tissue rehabilitation may also be recommended. It involves assessing and treating any soft tissue that is the source of pain or functioning abnormally, including tendons, muscles, and ligaments. This treatment is designed to realign and restore normal movement.
Physical therapy can also aid in easing the worries of your personal injury. It uses various strength exercises to promote healing, help restore function and mobility, and prevent disability.
