Chiropractors offer ongoing, routine preventive care to help their patients stay healthy and happy. But sometimes life throws us curveballs, and injuries do occur. Chiropractors can provide care for a number of different types of injuries, helping patients to heal faster, feel more comfortable, and avoid potentially dangerous or addictive pain medications.
While we welcome you to contact us regarding any injury you’ve sustained, most injuries that we treat will fall into one of the following three types.
1. Neck injuries. Neck injuries can result from accidents but are often the result of posture while sitting at work or performing other routine tasks. Along with treating your discomfort with gentle chiropractic adjustments, we can help you learn how to avoid neck injuries and pain.
Proper posture, appropriate exercise, regular stretching, and even adjusting your office chair and monitor can help to solve chronic neck injuries. Even changing your habits, such as no longer looking down at your cell phone, can reduce your symptoms.
2. Back injuries. Back injuries are the number one cause for workers compensation claims and filings for disability benefits. More than 80 percent of us will suffer from low back pain at some point. Many different types of injuries or misalignments can result in back pain, and many family doctors lack the training to correctly identify the cause of the problem.
Chiropractors specialize in not only identifying the cause of back pain, but in helping patients to resolve the problem. We will assess your specific situation, make recommendations that can help improve your condition, and offer chiropractic adjustments that can bring quicker relief.
3. Sports injuries. The majority of sports injuries are related to soft tissue accidents or are related to body mechanics. Whether you’re a student athlete, professional athlete, or just a weekend warrior, chiropractic care can help to uncover the underlying issues that caused your injury in the first place.
We can assess you for improper technique and conditioning, muscular imbalances, and biomechanical deficiencies. Then together we will treat your pain while helping you to avoid re-injury.
If you’ve sustained an injury of any type, give us a call to schedule an appointment. We can help you start to feel more comfortable, and prevent other potential problems associated with your injury.
