Understanding Repetitive Trauma
Repetitive trauma is a term used to refer to injuries sustained because of a repetitive motion or repetitive exposure to pressure or strain. These types of injuries do not happen all at once. Examples of this type of injury include carpal tunnel syndrome, herniated discs, pinched nerves, and other problems which arise because of overusing or misusing body parts. Repetitive trauma injuries will progressively grow worse over time unless they are properly treated.
Understanding Acute Trauma
Acute trauma injuries are injuries that take place all at once through an accident or impact. These types of injuries can result from car accidents, falls, impact on the body, or other types of events that could injure your body. Acute trauma injuries are often very painful and can result in a limitation of your mobility and productivity.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help?
Chiropractic care can help you find all-natural, drug-free pain relief options which can help speed healing. When most people experience an injury, they seek out the advice of a traditional medical doctor. Unfortunately, traditional medical treatment will often default to pain medications in order to treat an injury. Although this does provide some relief, in the long run, this does nothing to help the body heal.
Chiropractic treatment will aim at first pinpointing the exact location of the trauma and then finding natural treatment options that will speed healing and decrease inflammation. These treatments can include spinal adjustment, massage therapy, hot/cold therapy, spinal decompression, shockwave therapy, and other forms of treatment.
What Can I Expect at the Chiropractor?
When you first visit, you will be evaluated for overall health and wellness. After this, diagnostic tests will be performed to pinpoint the location of your injury. Next, an individualized treatment plan will be developed for you.
