Injuries and Chiropractic
Chiropractic is a system of therapy focused on the structure of the body, particularly the spine. Chiropractors manipulate the body’s alignment to relieve pain and improve function and to help the body heal itself. Injuries can happen when you least expect them, BeachView Chiropractic is here to get you back healthy and to your wellness goals!
The Most Common Slip and Fall Injuries
Slip and fall injuries can happen out of nowhere, but most people associate them with workplace accidents. Slick floors, poorly maintained work areas, lack of proper safety equipment, or even freak accidents can lead to workplace slip and fall injuries, but they aren’t the only ones that our patients have suffered.
During the winter, icy conditions can lead to slip and fall injuries that require rehabilitation and specialized treatment. Fortunately, BeachView Chiropractic Center has a team that can help! Back, shoulder, neck injuries, muscle strains, and sprains are some of the most common injuries associated with slip and fall accidents.
The Potential Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Slip and Fall Injuries
Chiropractic care has proven effective for treating lower back, neck, shoulder injuries, and more when performed by a trained professional. With a trip and fall accident, you want to do what you can to get your full range of motion back and get the chronic lower back pain relief that you need. After visiting a chiropractor, you may just get the results you’re looking for.
Regain Lost Strength
One of the biggest things that happen after a fall injury centers around a lack of strength in the injured area. Massaging and activating the tissues around the area can help speed up the recovery process when the damage occurs in your lower back. You can start seeing the strength return through a series of chiropractic adjustments and spinal manipulations.
The goal of any medical treatment for an injury focuses on pain reduction. You want to find a treatment plan that targets the painful areas and provides you
with well-earned relief. With the benefits of chiropractic care, you receive holistic pain management and relief without relying on chemical pain relief. It addresses the root cause of the pain and provides consistent relief.
These kinds of slip and fall cases can result in a person losing much of their mobility and range of motion for an extended period. Rehabilitating and regaining that same level of mobility becomes one of the aspects of recovery that people most look forward to but can also discourage them if the recovery isn’t going the way they want. Chiropractic treatment can help significantly improve your range of motion and address any lingering mobility issues.
