Chronic Pain Management
Chiropractic. Restoring function and total health to your nervous system is paramount after any kind of accident. The nervous system coordinates your entire bodily function. There is simply no reason to suffer when proper spinal care can eliminate pain and deliver improvements with one's health and wellness through the use of consistent chiropractic care.
Potential Automobile / Workplace Injuries
The chances of experiencing a work related back, muscular, tendon, joint or spinal injury is as high as 85% in your working career. Work-related musculoskeletal disorders are the leading cause of work-related disability*1 and health insurance claims of Canadian workers. Those that work at desks and sit for long periods of time are extremely prone to low back pain issues. Falls and improper movement of materials and equipment are other common ways workers end up with musculo-skeletal pain and strain. The standard medical approach, (depending on the severity), usually involves muscle relaxers, pain killers, traction, ultra sound and even surgery, which we do not necessarily promote. Most know of someone who has had back surgery and the results are spotty at best, sometimes working well for some, but so many people experience the return of their pain after a period of time. Some report no difference in pain from before they went in for surgery. It just doesn't seem like the best treatment for the wide spread problem of pain due to accidents.
Chiropractic approach to pain from injury
With a Chiropractic approach, so many people have confirmed their complete relief of pain and symptoms without the invasive medical treatments of drugs and surgery. Studies have shown that the period of disability from back issues were treated successfully in half the time as those who sought medical treatment. They were pain free and returned to their daily routine in as little as 3 days. With injury problems that are lingering, we will most likely treat you, not so much for the injury directly but for the for the spinal problem that has manifested. Through subluxation correction and renewed spinal health you will find the answers to your back pain issue, and maybe more.
Accidents and Chiropractic
Accidents from vehicle mishaps and from falling, no matter the degree of the fall can cause unseen serious damage and suffering. Damage like vertebral subluxation complexes in the body affecting nerves, bones, discs and ligaments and joint injuries can manifest in severe pain. You should not hesitate to have a chiropractic check up if you sense any pain or movement restrictions from such an accident. The doctor will pinpoint any developing spinal issues and treat it accordingly. The sooner pain is dealt with, the easier and less frequent the treatments will be.
