With regular adjustments and with the help of therapists and massage therapists, the team as a whole can not only dramatically reduce the pain involved in an accident or injury, but also reduce the recovery time that it would otherwise take to return to the enjoyment of normal daily routines and activities.
Whiplash is an injury to the neck due to a sudden distortion or extension of the neck, when the neck experiences a sudden cervical (neck) acceleration-deceleration motion. Whiplash is usually the result of a rear impact while in a stationary position and is most often associated with being hit from behind in a motor vehicle.
The most common sports injuries are sprains, strains and even fractures. A sprain occurs when the ligament is extended further than its limit. Both ligaments and tendons are like a coil or spring that if they are stretched too far they will become damaged and are sometime referred to as a pulled muscle.
Physical stress and strain is the reason for most work-related injuries. Sitting in the similar position for long periods of time each day while making recurring movements (such as typing, using a mouse, or even playing the piano for extended time periods) can cause stress and strain on your muscles, nerves, tendons, joints, blood vessels, and spine.
Chiropractic care is at times used in combination with conventional medical treatment. Its primarily purpose is to relieve pain as an alternative to medication and surgery for muscles, joints, bones, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. Both methods can be used in conjunction with each other to speed the recovery of a patient to return to daily activity.
During pregnancy a woman's body goes through extensive changes to her back, pelvic, joints and posture that can cause unwanted pain and discomfort. These changes force the body to unnaturally adapt to additional stress placed on the spine, negatively affecting joint function and nerve communication throughout the body.
A chiropractor can help patients with spinal, arm, leg, or neck adjustments and treatments to increase blood circulation to the injured area for faster recovery, as well as align the bones correctly surrounding ligaments, tendons and muscles to reduce unnecessary tension on the injury, increase the flexibility of the joints, and help all elements work together for a faster recovery.
