Treatment for Your Personal Injury
You're never expecting to get injured. One minute you are going about your day-to-day routine, and the next, you're dealing with the fallout from an accident that was out of your control. If you've been injured due to someone else's negligence, you may be feeling frustrated, angry, and helpless. But there is hope! At Riverside Chiropractic in Alexandria, Dr. Hawa can help you heal both physically and emotionally. Let’s look at some of the benefits of chiropractic care when it is used to treat a personal injury.
Reduce Inflammation and Swelling
Chiropractic care is a great way to reduce inflammation and swelling after an injury. The sooner you can reduce the inflammation, the sooner your body can start the healing process. Chiropractors use a variety of techniques to reduce inflammation, including ice therapy, electrical stimulation, and ultrasound.
After an injury, you may be dealing with a lot of pain. Pain medication can be addictive and have negative side effects, so it's not always the best option. Our chiropractor will work with you to find the source of your pain and provide drug-free pain relief. Techniques like spinal manipulation, traction, chiropractic adjustment, and massage can help alleviate most types of pain, including back pain.
Improve Range of Motion
An injury can often lead to restricted movement. This is because the muscles, tendons, and ligaments surrounding the injury may tighten up to protect the area from further damage. Our chiropractor can improve your range of motion by stretching and gently manipulating the affected area. Improving your range of motion will also help with back pain relief and speed up the healing process.
Endorphins are hormones that act as natural painkillers. They also produce a sense of euphoria, which can improve your mood after an injury. Chiropractic care can release endorphins by stimulating pressure points in the body. This will not only improve your pain levels but also give you a much-needed boost of energy and positive emotions.
