Chiropractic Q & A
Chiropractic care can be helpful in managing acute injuries, which are sudden and usually caused by a traumatic event such as a fall, a car accident, or a sports injury. In many cases, an acute injury can cause pain, swelling, and loss of mobility in the affected area.
A chiropractor can help to diagnose the source of pain and develop a treatment plan that may include chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue therapy, and other techniques to help alleviate pain and improve function. In some cases, the chiropractor may also recommend exercises or physical therapy to help support the healing process and prevent future injury.
For acute injuries, chiropractic care can be particularly effective in helping to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and promote healing by improving the function of the affected joint and supporting the surrounding muscles and tissues. It can also help to improve range of motion, reduce muscle spasms, and enhance the overall healing process.
It’s important to seek prompt medical attention if you have an acute injury, as certain conditions may require medical intervention, such as immobilization or surgery. Your chiropractor can work in conjunction with other healthcare providers, such as an orthopedic surgeon or physical therapist, to provide a comprehensive approach to the management of your injury.
