Those who have suffered a personal injury due to a car accident, workplace injury, or sports injury, understand and know just how debilitating it can be to everyday life. Research study shows that statistically, the CDC has accounted for roughly 31 million people across the country who have experienced a personal injury and require medical care.
Thankfully, there is an array of different treatment options available for those looking to find relief from pain, either physically or physiologically, caused by a personal injury. Most of the treatment options available include those that are all-natural and less invasive than most other remedies.
Most Common Personal Injuries
Some of the most common personal injuries that can occur are injuries caused by car accidents, injuries at the workplace, and sports-related injuries. When left untreated correctly, an injury can eventually lead to more complications throughout life and be more difficult to find treatment and comfort.
The severe mental or physical pain from a car accident, either minor or significant, can result in trauma and have long-lasting effects on the body. Some of the more common injuries caused by car accidents include whiplash, damage to the nerves, back or joint injury, and pain throughout the entire body.
Accidents that are most common in a workplace include those such as slip and fall, equipment or machinery-related injuries, and heavy objects that have fallen or put a strain on the body.
A sports injury’s commonly include ACL tear, MCL injury, Epicondylitis, pulled groin, hamstring strain, herniated discs, labral tear, meniscus damage, nerve damage, patellofemoral syndrome, Rotator cuff injury, and much more.
Personal Injury Treatment
The treatment plans available in our office for personal injury include prp injections, spinal decompression, trigger point injections, and chiropractic care.
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, injections contain many growth factors that are vital to healing. By injecting the patient’s own highly concentrated plasma into the affected area of injury, it can help to enable the body’s healing power.
For muscle pain, trigger point injections may be best suitable. The muscle trigger point will be injected with a plant-based anti-inflammatory called Sarapin. This will relax the muscle, helping to relieve it of any pain.
Spinal decompression softly elongates and extends the spine, loosening and giving assistance to pressure on the spinal discs. The discs then achieve their natural shape and receive more oxygen and fluids. This regimen frequently results in more prompt pain relief for some patients.
A simple chiropractic modification is an approach that helps to improve the correct alignment in the vertebrae, relieving any irritation to the nerves and other tissues.
