Chiropractic Care for Personal Injuries
Our chiropractic care focuses on a comprehensive approach to treating musculoskeletal, neurological, and vascular disorders due to personal injuries. The aim is to help restore the structural integrity of your muscles, bones, and tendons and improve neuromuscular function. Some of the techniques effective at correcting problems related to personal injuries include:
Spinal adjustments entail aligning misaligned vertebrae to treat pain. A chiropractor may adjust an injured area or joint manually or with the help of a machine, depending on the severity of your injury.
Muscle Testing and Mobilization
Muscle testing entails pressing the muscles around the injured area to determine if they are tight or weak. An injured muscle can be stiff, painful, bruised, or swollen. The chiropractor will mobilize these muscles by using various techniques to improve blood flow and reduce the trauma caused by the injury.
Massage therapy entails using the hand to apply pressure to the muscles, tendons, and ligaments. This can result in releasing chemicals in the body that help reduce pain.
Spinal decompression therapy uses a vacuum device to help increase blood flow through the spine. This increases oxygen levels and helps flush out waste products from the body.
