Chiropractic is beneficial in treating various injuries such as sprains, pulled muscles, and joint problems due to auto, sports, work, and everyday injuries. The most common injuries resulting from accidents are:
Whiplash is the sudden movement that causes distortions to your neck. This often occurs during a car crash, even one at very low speeds. Although you may not initially feel any pain, the vertebrae that move out of place will eventually cause you pain. Most medical doctors will prescribe pain medication and bed rest. This may be good for a day or two but not for the long run. You can’t function normally on pain meds and you certainly can’t stay in bed forever! Chiropractic helps with the cause of the pain rather than manage the symptoms.
Lower Back Pain
Lower back pain can be caused by many things such as poor posture or lifting something heavy the wrong way. Other problems causing lower back pain include injured discs, muscle strain, ligament sprain, scoliosis, sciatica, and more. A chiropractor can correct these injuries and relive your pain.
Repetitive motion injuries are very common now with many people working on a computer for long periods of time. A chiropractor can help relieve the pain from these injuries too.
Whether your pain is from working on your computer all day long or from a car accident, chiropractic is a way for you to feel better fast!
