Personal injury can be painful and lead to an equally long and painful recovery period. Our goals here at Professional Chiropractic Specialist include alleviating the pain on an injury and its recovery and helping you get back on your feet as rapidly as possible. As a registered nurse who is licensed in chiropractic care, our Jacksonville chiropractor has the knowledge and experience to make our goals a constant reality. Our treatments are all-natural, non-invasive and can be effective for pain management. They work to help alleviate and correct the cause of pain, expedite healing, and contribute to overall wellness.
Common personal injuries we see at our Jacksonville chiropractor include those caused by a slip and fall, improper or heavy lifting, or an awkward twist or turn of the back. These types of injuries can result in a misaligned vertebra, which results in back pain and can lead to headaches and migraines. We employ pain management techniques that include a spinal adjustment, which serves to gently realign the spine to restore full mobility and proper form. A misaligned vertebra that remains untreated can eventually worsen, leading to greater back pain and more severe problems in the future.
Chiropractic Techniques for various injuries
Another type of personal injury chiropractic techniques can help is a pinched nerve. A pinched nerve occurs when pressure is exerted on the nerve, leading to pain, numbness, and a tingling sensation. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a prime example of an injury caused by a pinched nerve wherein the median nerve that runs through the wrist becomes compressed. Carpal tunnel can result from any repetitive action, such as typing, using a computer mouse, or constant hand and wrist movements that consistently apply pressure to the area. Compressed nerves are also behind the pain of sciatica, another condition that can arise from a personal injury. Spinal adjustments can be extremely effective for alleviating the pressure on the pinched nerve, which, in turn, results in an alleviation of pain and suffering.
Various alternative therapy
Physical therapy and massage therapy are other services our Jacksonville chiropractor offers for pain management and treatment of personal injuries. These types of therapies can be particularly beneficial for strains, sprains and damage to muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other tissues. Physical therapy consists of a series of stretching and strengthening exercises that help restore mobility and power to the injured area. Massage therapy includes various types of massage that alleviate tension and stress as well as improve blood circulation, all of which can assist with the healing process.
Whether your personal injury results in pain in your neck and back, headaches and migraines, or damage to your muscles or related tissues, we can tailor a treatment plan designed to suit your individual needs. Our chiropractic care is all about overall wellness and helping you achieve it.
