Get Healthy Today with Personal Injury Rehabilitation
Identifying the cause for your personal injury pain is the first step towards successful treatment. For example, if you suffer from back pain, this pain may be due to a herniated disc or slipped disc compressing nearby nerves. For other patients, their back pain may be caused by pulled muscle. Our chiropractor will perform a diagnostic evaluation to determine the precise cause for your pain.
If a spinal misalignment is a root cause for your personal injury pain, chiropractic adjustments are an effective technique for managing this pain. Our Durham chiropractor Dr. David Leidich has been providing spinal adjustments for over 15 years. Proper alignment relieves pressure on nerves, alleviating lumbar or cervical compression that causes pain. Chiropractic care is effective because it addresses the root cause for personal injury pain.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, many personal injury patients benefit from complementary therapies such as physiotherapy exercises or massage therapy. Physiotherapy exercises are important for minimizing inflammation and swelling after an injury. Internal inflammation can exacerbate pain and increase the risk for scar tissue formation. Once scar tissue forms, muscles suffer from restricted mobility, which can further aggravate pain. Physiotherapy exercises support the body’s internal healing process without aggravating the underlying injury or causing additional pain. These exercises are a safe way to build coordination, strength, flexibility and balance after a personal injury. Many of these exercises can even be performed from the comfort of your home.
If you are experiencing muscle soreness or stiffness, therapeutic massage is a gentle and relaxing treatment for relieving this pain. Massage therapy increases circulation, bringing fresh, oxygen-rich blood straight to injured soft tissue. Increased circulation flushes out toxins and delivers vital nutrients. Massage also helps to release tension trapped within the body’s connective tissues, which support mobility.
Patients choose our Durham wellness center because they are frustrated with traditional treatment options. While medication can relieve pain, it is not a permanent pain management solution. Additionally, for patients who are suffering from restricted mobility, treatments such as physiotherapy and massage therapy are an important part of the rehabilitation process. Chiropractic adjustments are a non-invasive, patient-proven technique for managing pain that really works. We have helped hundreds of personal injury patients overcome their pain – and we can help you, too!
