What to Expect from Chiropractic Care for Personal Injuries
A slip and fall can have serious repercussions on your body. Even a minor fall can cause trauma to your nerves, muscles, and ligaments resulting in pain, discomfort, and loss of mobility. A diagnosis from a Batavia chiropractor can confirm any personal injury you may have sustained in a fall, so you can receive treatment. Chiropractic treatments have been proven quite effective in helping people recover from slip and fall injuries. Here’s what you can expect from a visit to Sharratt Chiropractic in Batavia.
When you visit our clinic, we will take time to review your medical history to get a better idea of the state of your health. We may ask questions about prior injuries you have received and past treatments. We’ll also ask for a detailed account of your slip and fall accident to help us make an accurate evaluation. From there, you will be examined by an experienced chiropractor to determine the type and extent of your injuries. Depending on your situation, we may order x-rays to see if an injury requires surgery.
Treatment Options for Slip and Fall Injuries
Whether you slip or trip, the consequences of a fall can be devastating. Some falls cause broken bones and lacerations, which can be very painful. Others result in soft tissue, neck, or back injuries which can be equally painful. How and where you fall and your age can make a difference in the severity of your injury. Here are a few ways we may treat a personal injury.
Soft Tissue Injuries
Sprains and strains are examples of soft tissue injuries that can occur due to a fall. These injuries can result in torn muscles, tendons and ligaments in the afflicted areas, leaving you in extreme pain. Depending on your injury, we may recommend massage, trigger point therapy, stretching, or manual adjustments to reduce muscle tension, eliminate pain, and speed up your recovery.
Neck and Back Injuries
It’s quite easy to hurt your neck or back in a fall. Neck and back injuries can be treated with adjustments and manipulation techniques to reduce soreness and stiffness and restore mobility. Your chiropractor may combine these techniques with strengthening exercises, stretching, mobilization, and nutrition education to get the most from your treatment. Chiropractic treatments provide you with a non-invasive, drug-free means of achieving full recovery from a personal injury.
