Armstrong Chiropractic Center Discusses Personal Injury
When you get hurt in an accident, whether it is at work, an automobile accident, or a slip and fall accident, it is likely that there will be many things that are just not right. Chances are you will have several legal and insurance matters to deal with, but it is important to take the time to take care of yourself and visit a personal injury chiropractor in Temple, TX.
Common Ailments From Personal Injuries
When you are in an accident, several different ailments may surface either immediately after the incident or sometime afterward. Because reporting injuries promptly can affect a potential claim, it is important to see a Temple chiropractor right away, even if you aren't experiencing much pain. At Armstrong Chiropractic in Temple, TX, our chiropractor is skilled in diagnostics and can assess your injuries as well as their cause.
With or without an accident back injuries are among the most common experienced, and what chiropractors are best known for treating. Accidents can lead to pinched nerves or muscle strains and sprains in the back that can cause misalignment and pain.
Among the most common neck injuries that are commonly the result of an accident is whiplash. Whiplash is common with car accidents when the head is propelled forward then back in very quick succession. Sometimes symptoms are not felt right away. These include
- Neck pain and stiffness
- Worsening pain with movement
- Difficulty moving neck
- Headaches at the base of the skull
- Pain radiating into shoulders, upper back, and arms
Slip and Fall
Often slip and fall accidents don't get the same attention that car accidents do, but they do contribute to their share of chiropractic visits in Temple. Even when a person manages to catch themselves before actually falling, they can still throw their spine out of alignment, resulting in pain. At Armstrong Chiropractic, we can determine how a slip and/or fall has affected you and help you figure out the best treatment going forward. Injuries from slips and falls commonly include; soft tissue injuries, such as strains and sprains and spinal corded injuries including compression, or misalignment. Severe falls result in more severe injuries, but frequently injuries can be treated by your Temple chiropractor without surgery, excessive medication, or other invasive treatments.
Sometimes a personal injury does not happen overnight and are instead caused by ergonomic problems, such as a poorly set up workspace or posture issues. In addition to treating back related problems stemming from these issues, chiropractors also frequently take on the pain caused by carpal tunnel syndrome, which can cause chronic wrist and hand pain. At Armstrong Chiropractic in Temple, TX we not only help with pain relief but can also advise you as to better ergonomic positions that can prevent further injury.
