FAQs about Chiropractic Care for Personal Injuries
Accidents can happen at any time, leaving you with a debilitating personal injury. Personal injuries can make it difficult to concentrate on work, perform daily tasks or care for your family. Whether you were injured in a slip, fall, auto accident, or sports accident, come to Roy A. Logan Chiropractic Clinic in Austin for pain relief. The following FAQs will explain more about personal injury causes and symptoms and how chiropractic care can help with recovery.
What Types of Personal Injuries Can Chiropractors Treat?
Your Austin chiropractor has ample experience treating musculoskeletal and neurological injuries caused by a slip, fall, sports play, auto crashes, or workplace accidents. These include herniated discs, spinal misalignments, muscle strains, soft tissue injuries, whiplash, stretched ligaments, pinched nerves, and more. We treat such sports injuries such as a torn ACL, runner’s knee, tendonitis, and neck, shoulder, and back injuries, just to name a few.
What Kinds of Symptoms Can Personal Injuries Cause?
Personal injury symptoms can range from acute and chronic pain to numbness, soreness, stiffed joints, headaches, loss of flexibility, loss of range of motion, and loss of mobility. Long term pain can lead to anxiety, irritation, and depression, especially if there’s no pain relief solution in sight.
How Can an Acute Personal Injury Become a Chronic Injury?
Left untreated, a minor personal injury can escalate into a major issue or cause other major problems that require long term treatment. An untreated herniated disc, for example, can escalate into sciatica, producing even more painful symptoms. If your injury doesn’t heal properly, it can leave scar tissue that impedes mobility.
How Does Chiropractic Care Treat Personal Injuries?
As no two injuries are exactly alike, your Austin chiropractor will develop a treatment plan catered to your specific needs. We’ll first review your medical history to get an idea of your state of health and past injuries and treatments. We’ll then give you a physical exam to include diagnostic testing to determine the cause of your pain and severity of your injury. Once we have this information, we can create a personalized treatment program for pain relief.
Chiropractic treatments may involve the use of spinal manipulation (adjustments) and spinal decompression to alleviate pressure on spinal nerves that are causing pain. These same treatments can realign joints and bones in your spine to restore balance to your system. Balancing your system will expedite your healing. Massage therapy can reduce pain and inflammation caused by muscle and ligament injuries to help your body heal. Physical therapy exercises can help strengthen muscles and restore mobility.
