Have you been injured?
Have you been injured while exercising, playing sports, or from being involved in a car accident? Injuries sustained in these activities represent a wide spectrum of tissue damage in varying degrees of severity, and they are generally referred to as sports/auto injuries or injuries to the musculoskeletal system. If you have sustained such an injury, your best bet for pain relief and long-term healing is under the care of a trusted Charlotte chiropractor.
Acute and chronic injuries to the neuro-musculoskeletal system
An acute injury to the musculoskeletal system, which typically also affects the central nervous system, generally happens suddenly while taking part in sports or other exercise, or in an auto accident that causes a whiplash motion of the head and neck. Injuries can result in sudden and severe pain, restricted movement in the affected area, or weight-bearing problems on a specific limb. Chronic injuries usually result from the wear and tear of aging or the overuse of one area of the body over time. Symptoms of chronic injuries include soreness, dull, aching pain, and ultimately an inability to perform daily activities.
Professional athletes and weekend sportsmen agree
More and more, professional athletes are joining amateur athletes in seeking chiropractic care for soft tissue injuries, not only for immediate pain relief, but for the sake of their long-term performance. While the approach of traditional medicine is to prescribe pain medication for soft tissue injury, athletes who receive chiropractic care after a sports injury report less pain, quicker healing times, and longer-lasting relief than they do with traditional medical treatment. Likewise, patients recovering from an automobile accident injury also claim they feel better faster with chiropractic care. Medication can only address symptoms of pain, whereas gentle chiropractic treatment gets to the source of the pain and corrects it. The purpose of chiropractic treatment is to restore spinal health and improve proper function to the central nervous system, which in turn provides your body the means to heal its injury. No wonder so many athletes and injured motorists seek help from their Charlotte chiropractors. Have you been injured? Seek chiropractic care.
Chiropractic approach to treatment
Chiropractic provides a balanced approach to treating and healing both acute and chronic injuries. Centered on the gentle spinal adjustment chiropractic care is known for, supportive treatment by the caring doctors at ChiroCarolina® in Charlotte, NC, may also include ultrasound, electrical muscular stimulation, massage, or physical therapy. Drugs or invasive surgery have no place in chiropractic care. Unlike traditional doctors, doctors of chiropractic are trained to gently and safely reposition spinal segments and extremity joints to restore them to normal mobility, thereby helping the supportive muscles, tendons, and ligaments affected by the injury.
