Car accidents, slip and falls, and injuries at your workplace are all common personal injury circumstances that result in the need for chiropractic care. Some symptoms may not present initially after an accident. It could take up to a day or two before symptoms are noticed. Seeking medical attention as soon as possible should be a top priority.
All types of accidents, even slow little fender benders, can cause long-term damage to your health. Some of the things that present themselves quickly after an injury are:
- Strains/sprains of muscles and ligaments
- Trigger points
- Neck or Low back pain
- Decreased range of motion
- Inability to complete your activities of daily living.
Soft Tissue Treatments
Chiropractors specialize in the diagnosis and treatments of soft tissue and structural changes to the body. As a specialist, they can address the muscles, ligaments, or tendons injured and determine what therapeutic modality should be applied. Some of these modalities could include:
- Electrical muscle stimulation
- Therapeutic Ultrasound
- Trigger point release
- Muscle adhesion release
- Cervical/Lumbar traction
These therapies, coupled with chiropractic adjustments, provide the patient the best outcomes to aid their path to normal motion or function.
