At some point in life, we all sustain a personal injury. It could be the result of athletic activity or repetitive motion at work. Though an injury might seem minor at first, it can develop into a much more serious condition if left untreated. For instance, if your posture is affected by injury, your entire body can be thrown off balance. Whatever the cause or nature of your pain, the chiropractic professionals at Newhouse Health Solutions can work with you to develop a plan of treatment to change your life for the better.
Treating Personal Injury
Pain is there to tell you that something is wrong. If something could not be done about the pain you feel, there would be no point in feeling it. The chiropractic approach to treating pain is all about removing blockages to healing.
Impediments to healing come in many forms. It could be a misalignment of the spine or the musculoskeletal system in general. It could be that you are holding tension in some part of your body. Chronic tension can cause pain, discomfort, and even injury in any part of the body in which it occurs. Even a relatively stable joint like the elbow could develop an injury from chronic nervous tension on one side of the joint. This one-sided tension can disrupt the proper seating of the bone in the socket and lead to chronic pain. Imagine to what extent tension could cause pain and discomfort in the neck and the spine.
By treating chronic tension, treating musculoskeletal misalignments, developing strength in supporting muscles, and offering nutritional counseling, we can effectively reduce and eliminate conditions that contribute to injury. In many cases, we can make future injury less likely to occur.
Chiropractic Treatments for Pain
Your chiropractor will work with you closely to determine the best plan of treatment. Your chiropractic care plan may include:
Chiropractic Adjustment: This is a set of gentle techniques to remove misalignments from the neck, spine, and surrounding structures.
Massage Therapy: More than just a weekend indulgence, therapeutic massage can help to remove the chronic tensions that lead to lasting pain and injury.
Therapeutic Exercise: By strengthening muscles and connective tissues that support the affected part of the body, our chiropractor can help to restore mechanical balance.
Nutritional Counseling: Without the necessary building blocks of life, the body cannot heal fully or properly. In many cases, we can help to get to the root of many pain conditions by examining your diet.
