Our bodies feel pain when muscles and bones are misaligned, injured, or both. Chiropractors treat pain found in any muscle or joint of the body, not just the back. Knowing this becomes instrumental when dealing with personal injuries. At Precision Health and Wellness in Middletown, DE, we find many people have questions about personal injuries and how our chiropractor can help.
What is a Personal Injury?
Personal injuries occur due to impact and repetitive motion. For example, injuries sustained in a car accident are considered personal injuries. A dislocation that happens at work or after slipping and falling is considered a personal injury, as is the inflammation and pain associated with poor workplace ergonomics.
Pain Due to Personal Injury
How the pain appears in the body is different for everyone based on where you were hurt and the surrounding areas that are inflamed or have started to overcompensate. Here are a few ways the pain can manifest:
- Pain when standing or walking
- Reduced range of motion
- Numbness and tingling in the extremities
Chiropractic Care for Personal Injury Treatment
Chiropractic care starts with several screenings. We look at everything from your posture to how you have to stretch or strain your muscles and tendons to reach an object. We also learn about your recreational lifestyle, sports you may participate in, outdoor activities, what you do for work, and more. This combined information gives an overall picture of how to help you best.
After our chiropractor has assessed your musculoskeletal system and determined the root cause of your pain and immobility, we will create a chiropractic care plan tailored to your needs. In most cases, we'll adjust your spine and provide you with a series of exercises to relieve your pain and restore your range of motion. We may also recommend relaxation or targeted massage therapy. Many of our patients benefit from spinal decompression. All methods we use are designed to reduce pain, and through the use of modern chiropractic technology, we offer other ways to relieve your pain without drugs or surgery.
