Personal Injury Recovery
and Medication-Free Pain Management
The first step in helping you recover from personal injury is identifying the core issues for your pain. For example, if you are experiencing pain in your neck or extremities, you may be out of alignment, pinching or compressing nerves and disrupting the signals between your nerves and the brain. Other patients may be exhibiting the same symptoms, but pulled muscles or damage to the soft tissues could be the root cause. Our specialists will analyze your condition in order to determine the core issue that is causing your pain.
If misalignment proves to be the core issue of your personal injury pain, our specialists can utilize chiropractic adjustments to manage your level of pain. Returning to the body into proper alignment and balance relieves pent-up pressure in the nerves, and therefore relieving pain. Chiropractic care is a vital component towards addressing the core issues of personal injury pain in most cases.
Many of our personal injury patients additionally benefit from complementary therapy like recovery exercises, or massage therapy. Recovery exercises help to minimize levels of inflammation and swelling when an injury has occurred. Inflammation can worsen pain and increase the risk of scar tissue forming. Once scar tissue has formed, your muscles will suffer from restrictions in their range of motion, a condition that can worsen pain. Recovery exercise and physical therapy stimulate the body’s innate healing capabilities without aggravating the underlying and surrounding tissues afflicted by the injury. Recovery exercise is a safe, effective way to build strength and flexibility after a personal injury has occurred. If you are a patient experiencing residual pain or stiffness in the muscles, massage is a gentle treatment to help you relax and relieve some of your pain. Massage therapy helps increase the activity of the circulatory system, delivering blood rich with oxygen to the injured tissues. This increase in circulation flushes toxins derivative from the damaged tissue and deliver essential vitamins and nutrients to areas in need. Additionally helping to relieve tension stored in the body’s mobility supporting connective tissue.
