You never know when you’ll sustain a personal injury. That’s why it’s important to know what to do in the event an injury occurs. At Joint Maneuvers Chiropractic Centre in St. Cloud and Lake Nona, Orlando, FL, we treat personal injuries that affect your muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. These FAQs from our chiropractor explain more about personal injuries and chiropractic pain relief treatment.
What types of injuries count as a “personal injury?”
Personal injuries are accidental injuries that cause physical, emotional, or psychological pain to a person. These injuries include accident injuries, home injuries, slip and falls, and injuries sustained from using a defective product. The pain or emotional trauma of a personal injury may force you to take time off of your job or make it difficult to resume a normal lifestyle.
What are some possible symptoms of personal injuries?
Personal injuries to your musculoskeletal system can manifested in pain, discomfort, loss of mobility, loss of sleep, headaches, vision problems, or mental anguish. Acute injuries are those that happen quickly and unexpectedly, such as injuries from an auto crash, sports, or a slip and fall. Some examples are whiplash, herniated disc, or dislocated bones and joints which can lead to pinched nerves. Chronic injuries are often the result of muscle overuse or repetitive motions, resulting in dull, achy pain in muscles, joints, and connective tissues.
How do chiropractors treat personal injuries?
Our chiropractor has ample experience treating musculoskeletal personal injuries. We’ll first conduct an evaluation to determine the type of injury you sustained and its severity. Then we’ll outline a plan for treatment. If your injury involves misalignments in your neck or spine that are irritating nerves, we’ll use adjustments to shift bones and joints back into alignment to reduce pain, restore body function, and help your injury heal. Adjustments also take pressure off of muscles, joints, and nerves to relieve pain and stiffness in your neck and spine.
What other therapies are involved in chiropractic personal injury treatment?
Depending on your diagnosis, our chiropractor may use multiple therapies in your treatment. Adjustments combined with soft tissue massage, acupuncture, hot/cold treatments, and physical therapy exercises are more effective in helping to expedite recovery of a personal injury.
