It’s no surprise that car accidents are the most common personal injuries.
The next most common type of personal injury is slip and fall accidents. These kinds of accidents are a major cause of hip and head injuries.
Between car accidents and slip and fall injuries, there are thousands of people out of work and in pain at any given time.
And while chiropractors don’t treat every specific ailment that’s caused by these injuries, they do help with injuries to the following:
Let’s dive into some of the top injuries
Back pain is one of the most common personal injuries that result from auto accidents, slip and falls, and even work injuries. Back pain is often treated with chiropractic adjustments and spinal manipulation.
Whiplash is by far the most common personal injury associated with car accidents. Whiplash can have a lasting impact on a person if left untreated. Dr. Sara Edwards often treats whiplash with chiropractic adjustments
Sprains and Strains
Sprains and strains are commonly associated with accidents, including work and sports injuries. Building strength and flexibility throughout the injured body parts can improve the health of your muscles and tissues and support your recovery process.
Soft Tissue Pain
Soft tissue pain may develop after a personal injury, but chiropractic care can help. Chiropractors treat soft tissue pain with myofascial release, trigger point therapy, active release techniques, heat therapy, and cold therapy.
Treatment will relieve pain and allow you to perform corrective exercises, so you can see long-term results.
