Chiropractic Can Help With Injuries Due to Accidents
If you’ve experienced injuries such as sprains, pulled muscles, and joint problems due to sports, work, auto, or just everyday injuries, chiropractic is beneficial in treating these painful issues.
The most common injuries due to accidents are:
Lower back misalignment
Upper back and neck misalignment
Repetitive motion injuries
Whiplash is a sudden movement that causes distortions to the neck. This type of injury often happens during a car crash, even at one at very low speeds.
You may not initially feel any pain, the vertebrae that move out of place will eventually cause problems with the nerves and cause you pain form misalignment or subluxations. Medical doctors usually prescribe pain meds and bed rest for this type of injury. You can’t stay in bed indefinitely and you certainly can’t function regularly on pain medications. A chiropractor helps you with the cause of the problem rather than manage the symptoms.
Lower back misalignment can happen suddenly or over a long period of time. Lifting a heavy object improperly can cause immediate back pain. Having poor posture can result in back pain over time. This misalignment causes subluxations that can be corrected by a chiropractor.
Lower back pain is made up of several different low back problems including:
Chiropractic can correct injuries for the upper back and neck as well.
Repetitive motion injuries are most often associated with the workplace, particularly sitting at a computer for long periods of time. Repetitive motion injuries cause less oxygen to get to the muscles and this causes scar tissue to develop. Chiropractic release the subluxations causing the pain.
Whether your pain is from a car accident or merely sitting incorrectly at work, chiropractic is a way for you to feel better fast and without the use of pain medications.
