Chiropractic Treatment for Personal Injuries
Personal injuries are common in our everyday lives. Ranging from auto accidents to workplace mishaps to sports injuries, personal injuries could be anything. Fortunately, chiropractic care can treat a wide variety of personal injuries. At Performance Chiropractic Center in Concord, CA, our team can help you. As personal injury specialists, we use multi-dimensional chiropractic techniques to treat a variety of injuries.
Types of Personal Injuries
Getting chiropractic help immediately after suffering a personal injury gives you a faster recovery time and prevents the injury from worsening. There are several common injuries that our chiropractor is an expert in treating.
Whiplash is very common in auto accidents, but can also come from sports injuries. It occurs when there is a sudden back and forth movement of the neck, causing tendons, ligaments, and muscles to strain. While whiplash isn't life-threatening, if left untreated, it can cause dizziness, neck pain and stiffness, blurred vision, headaches, and back and shoulder pain.
Some personal injuries, like whiplash, may not show symptoms immediately after trauma. That’s why it’s important to get help. Our chiropractor can spot hidden injuries that may cause chronic problems later in life.
Lower Back Pain
Auto accidents, slips, falls, and a number of everyday activities can lead to problems in the lower back. Beyond back pain, lower back injuries may affect mobility. These injuries can also cause muscle spasms, pain while walking, and leg pain or numbness.
Just like whiplash, sciatica is common with auto accidents. Your sciatic nerve starts in your lower back. When under pressure, it can cause severe back pain. Sciatica symptoms include pain that radiates to the buttocks and legs, trouble walking, and muscle weakness.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help
While most doctors use medications to treat symptoms, our chiropractor uses drug-free, non-invasive methods to address personal injuries. Instead of masking symptoms, chiropractic care identifies the root cause of the injury and provides long-lasting solutions. Chiropractic care can offer faster recovery, reduce pain, pinpoint hidden injuries, reduce inflammation and swelling, and even restore your body’s full range of motion.
There are many ways our chiropractor can treat injuries. Spinal manipulation is a standard chiropractic method used to align the spine and joints. This technique relieves spine pain and helps with overall body pain. We also offer massage therapy, which soothes sore muscles, relieves pain, reduces muscle stiffness, and relieves soft tissue inflammation. Our chiropractor can give you corrective exercises to do at home, which help strengthen muscles and restore your full range of motion.
