Your Chiropractor for Personal Injuries
When you slip and fall or experience a traumatic injury, you could end up with chronic back, neck, and joint pain. At Spinalcare Chiropractic Clinic in Richmond Hill, our chiropractor can assess your condition and develop a treatment plan to alleviate your discomfort. Chiropractic care stimulates the body's natural healing ability, which may help you avoid further damage and recover from your injury.
Common Ergonomic Injuries
Ergonomic injuries result from overextension and overuse. Common ergonomic injuries treated at Spinalcare Chiropractic Clinic include:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (injury due to overuse of the wrist)
- Tendinitis (inflammation of the tendon)
- Lower Back Injuries (from lifting heavy objects or overuse)
- Epicondylitis (tennis elbow)
Chiropractic Care for Slip and Fall Accidents
When you slip and fall, you may not realize the damage that was caused until days or even weeks later. Whether you fall due to a wet floor, icy sidewalk, or child's toy, numerous injuries can result.
Common Slip and Fall Injuries
Your muscles can become strained or sprained when you twist them during a fall. Chiropractic care alleviates the pain and soreness associated with sprained ankles and wrists. Also, shoulder and back injuries due to a nasty fall can cause bruising and, in some cases, joint misalignments due to the tendency to break your fall with your arms. Our chiropractor can make the necessary adjustments to ensure your back and shoulder continue to heal properly.
Spinal misalignment in the back and neck may not show up immediately after a slip and fall or another personal injury. It may be days before the real pain manifests. If you believe a recent injury may have affected your back or neck, you should see a chiropractor as soon as possible.
At Spinalcare Chiropractic Clinic, we treat the following conditions:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Strains and Sprains
- Nerve-related numbness and tingling
Chiropractic Care for a Personal Injury
Gentle spinal adjustments return your spine to proper alignment and help you heal faster. The same is true of your joints, including wrists, knees, ankles, and elbows harmed during an injury. We may refer you for x-rays to ensure that nothing is broken. After the chiropractor examines the scans and discusses your medical history, including the injury itself, a treatment plan is developed.
Inflammation results from your body's attempt to heal itself. That's a good thing. However, the increased pressure also causes pain. Spinal manipulation can reduce the swelling and reduce nerve pressure that prevents blood flow and the circulation of nutrients to the injured area. Chiropractic care is less invasive than surgery and doesn't rely on medication to mask the pain.
