It's summer and that means some unfortunate individuals will invariably find themselves involved in injuries from those summertime activities. Common injuries that we see are muscle sprains, strains, back pain, neck pain, whiplash and more. Consequently, many people turn to our Lexington chiropractor for help with those injuries.
Our chiropractic team in Lexington has the skills needed to treat those musculoskeletal problems. Let's take whiplash as an example. It is easy to get whiplash in a speed boat accident or one that involves impact with another object. After the accident, victims generally experience muscle weakness, numbness, pain, reduced range of motion, balance issues and headaches.
Chiropractors who choose to treat people with injuries know how to readjust as well as realign the human neck and spinal column. As such, we may be helpful when it comes to immediately relieving pain, headaches, stiffness and numbness. In the long-term, we can work wih accident victims to address range of motion and balance issues too.
Bruising and muscle contusions are also common after accidents. They tend to vary in severity with third degree ones being the most painful. They involve inflammation, broken capillaries and may temporarily cause muscle, ligament and bone instability. Treatment of said bruises generally includes using gentle massage and other methods to activate the victim's lymphatic system, which aids in healing.
Many chiropractors use gentle massage and other methods to kickoff the body's lymphatic response. As such, accident victims may find relief at their Lexington chiropractor's office whether they have misaligned vertebrae, whiplash and pinched nerves or not. So never hesitate to contact our Lexington chiropractor after an accident and ask for help.
