Here’s How Chiropractic Helps Personal Injuries
Author: Atlas Total Health
Personal injuries happen – quite often. We’ve previously covered personal injury and worker’s compensation chiropractic care and how you can seek chiropractic care for these injuries. However, some personal injuries occur more often than others. So, let’s explore how chiropractic helps personal injuries of 3 common types.
How Chiropractic Helps Personal Injuries
Chiropractic care isn’t limited to injuries – and it isn’t a cure-all. But chiropractic helps personal injuries of 3 kinds in particular.
1. Injuries From Defective Products
Defective or faulty products can cause various types of personal injuries. Products that promise “quick fixes” seem promising – until they cause damage or pain from either misuse or defectiveness.
These can include:
- Posture braces
- Waist trainers
- Ankle or body weights
In these cases, where misalignment of the spine can be worsened, chiropractic care helps personal injuries by working effectively to correct spinal misalignment through chiropractic manipulation. Your chiropractor will also teach you exercises that you can do at home. The goal is for you to reach proper alignment.
2. Injuries From Falls
Senior citizens are at the greatest risk of injuries due to falls. However, anyone can suffer from a fall and serious injury as well. Experts estimate that around 300,000 Americans need care in an emergency room after falling each year. Fall injuries can be minor, like sprains or muscle tears. Or, they can be severe, like head or spinal injuries. It’s always important to seek medical treatment after suffering from a serious fall. After seeking appropriate medical treatment, if your doctor approves, see your chiropractor. Chiropractic care can be a great natural option. It may help you recover from personal injuries after a fall.
3. Injuries From Minor Road Accidents
Auto accident injuries range in severity. Obviously, some will need medical treatment. However, in some cases, chiropractic can help treat and alleviate pain from auto accident injuries. These minor “fender benders” don’t always cause catastrophic injuries. For that reason, treatment for injuries from auto or pedestrian accidents focuses on pain management. We also teach exercises to restore joint mobility.
These 3 types of personal injuries are some of the personal injuries the chiropractors at Atlas Total Health can help with. Make an appointment at one of the convenient Atlas Total Health clinics today and start on the path to full recovery after a personal injury.
