What do you think of when you hear the words "personal injury?" This rather wide-ranging term can actually refer to almost any kind of injury inflicted upon your person, from slip and fall damage to repetitive motion injuries sustained in your daily work or favorite sport. Whatever the cause of your personal injury, you need to get immediate care -- not only to ease your suffering and speed healing but also to make certain that the symptoms don't grow worse. That's why you'll want to investigate the all-natural personal injury treatment options at Roy A. Logan Chiropractic Clinic in Austin.
It only takes one fateful error to make yourself vulnerable to a personal injury. For instance, one false step can cause you to slip and fall on a hard floor. The impact can throw your spinal alignment out of balance and/or dislocate extremity joints. Heavy lifting injuries frequently lead to acute muscle strains that cause lower back pain. An impact to the body that throws your head around with great force can cause whiplash, leaving you with neck pain and neurological symptoms.
You can suffer from personal injury symptoms even if you've never experienced these kinds of painful mishaps. Chronic injuries such as tendinitis can develop over time, with repeated damage to the tissues causing ongoing pain and inflammation. If you practice the same repetitive motions dozens of times per day, you could easily develop an overuse injury in any part of the musculoskeletal system. This is commonly seen in the form of carpal tunnel syndrome, often caused by poor wrist ergonomics at work, and text neck, in which aiming the head down to view a computer display leads to chronic neck pain.
Some personal injuries can lead to internal scar tissue buildup and other painful complications the longer they're allowed to go untreated. Our Austin chiropractor can provide a prompt, accurate diagnosis so you can start receiving the necessary care right away. In many cases, chiropractic adjustments to the neck, back, or extremity joints can provide significant relief from pain, tingling, numbness, and other symptoms. Corrective exercise, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and other non-invasive methods can reduce pain and speed healing in soft tissues. We can also guide you toward better home or work ergonomics so you can avoid overuse injuries.
