Examples of Personal Injuries
Personal injuries can occur from a fall while you're out in public, at work, or playing on the field. You might develop an injury if your job requires frequent lifting of heavy items or if you're not lifting items properly. Overworking or overstretching the soft tissue during sports activities can also lead to personal injuries. Additionally, car accidents can cause herniated discs in your back or whiplash (a neck injury).
Diagnosing Your Injury
Before determining the appropriate treatment for your injury, we must first identify the cause of the problem. We will have you fill out a complete medical history report, which will provide our chiropractor with information about any previous injuries, surgeries, or chronic conditions that could impact your personal injury. Our chiropractors will discuss when and how the injury occurred, as well as the symptoms you're currently experiencing. It's important for us to know the intensity of your pain.
During the assessment period, we may evaluate your range of motion and apply pressure to the area to determine the exact location and check for tightness or inflammation. In some cases, your chiropractic practitioner may recommend imaging tests to get a thorough view of the affected area.
Treating the Injury
Our chiropractic care is tailored to your specific injury. Depending on your case, we may recommend one or more treatments. For back or neck injuries, spinal alignment may be recommended. Exercise therapy is also commonly used, where a chiropractic practitioner guides you through stretches and exercises that promote healing and help alleviate pain.
