Whether you work a job doing physical labor or are employed in an office, there is always the chance of injury. Some injuries can occur suddenly, such as a slip and fall, while others, such as overuse injuries and carpal tunnel, can develop and grow worse over time. At West Monroe Chiropractic Spine & Injury Center, we have provided residents of West Monroe and Monroe with natural and effective personal injury treatment for many years.
What's a Personal Injury?
A personal injury is any injury that causes a person to suffer from pain and immobility. Common causes include work, exercise, or accidents. A personal injury can occur suddenly, and over 24 million people need medical help due to an injury every single year. These statistics, given by the CDC, show just how common and debilitating personal injuries are.
Common personal injuries include:
- Auto accident injuries
- Muscle strains
- Muscle sprains
- Broken bones
- Achilles heel injuries
- Overuse injuries
- Carpal Tunnel
Do I Need Help For My Injury?
It's important to get help for your injury if your recovery is taking significantly longer than normal. Some injuries, such as mild strains and sprains, can heal using only mild treatment such as rest and icing the injury. On the other hand, other injuries require weeks, months, even years of rehabilitation. If you begin to experience chronic pain from your injury, it's time to see a chiropractor for help.
Your chiropractor will be able to diagnose the root cause of your pain and offer valuable treatment advice for your injury. Whether you're suffering from muscle strain, tendon inflammation, or joint damage, our chiropractor will evaluate, diagnose and determine an appropriate treatment plan to repair and remodel the underlying cause of your pain and immobility.
Common treatment methods your chiropractor might use include:
- Stretches to reduce tension and inflammation
- Spinal adjustments to help realign the spine and restore balance
- Manual therapy to encourage blood flow and decrease tissue adhesions
- Exercises to strengthen the muscles and improve flexibility
- Spinal decompression to treat herniated discs
These are just some of the many chiropractic treatments that can help promote healing and alleviate pain from personal injuries. Our chiropractor will inform you of which treatments will work and how long sessions will be.
