Chiropractic Treatment for Personal Injuries
A personal injury changes your life, temporarily and sometimes permanently. You want to get your life back. It is important to visit a doctor after a personal injury, but many times they don't have a suitable form of treatment. At Canyon View Chiropractic in Salt Lake City, we offer the treatment you need to get back on your feet.
Types of Personal Injuries
The most common types of personal injuries treated by a chiropractor are auto accident injuries, slips and falls, and lifting injuries. Whiplash is a common auto accident injury. It is caused when the head and neck move back and forth quickly due to the force of the accident. Sports injuries and falls can also cause whiplash. Slips and falls can cause sprains and strains. These can occur in the back or the extremities. Lifting injuries can cause sprains and strains in the back as well. They can also contribute to bulging or herniated discs.
Spinal Adjustments for Personal Injuries
Chiropractic treatment can help heal personal injuries. Our chiropractor provides treatment without invasive procedures or relying on pain medication, which can have serious side effects. One of the most common and effective types of chiropractic treatment is the spinal adjustment.
Auto accident injuries including whiplash can cause spinal misalignment. In addition to pain, the body is unable to function properly when it is misaligned. You can think of it as a house with a faulty foundation. You will soon see problems in other areas as well. Spinal adjustments can be used to treat a misalignment. This helps reduce pain and inflammation and assists in healing by clearing the spinal pathway.
If you have a bulging or herniated disc due to a personal injury, spinal decompression can provide the relief you need. Spinal decompression gently stretches the spine, relieving pressure on the discs. This can allow the discs to heal and retract back to their normal position. It also promotes better flow of blood and oxygen, which are essential to the healing process.
Sprains, strains, and whiplash injuries often benefit from massage therapy. Massage therapy uses pressure to relieve tension in the muscles and increase blood flow throughout the area. If you have stiff or tight muscles or a limited range of motion, massage therapy may be right for you.
