Personal Injury Q & A
What is a personal injury?
A personal injury describes bodily harm that results from a fall or another type of accident. If you experience a personal injury at work or while running errands, it’s important to stop what you’re doing and get professional help.
Often, personal injuries like sprains, strains, and whiplash don’t present symptoms right away. As a result, you might be at risk but not realize it.
If you injure yourself, the team at Elite Spine and Health Center can pinpoint the source of your discomfort and develop a minimally invasive treatment plan that speeds up your recovery.
What are some common personal injuries?
At Elite Spine and Health Center, the team treats various personal injuries, including:
- Car accident injuries
- Sprains and strains
- Slip-and-fall injuries
- Repetitive use injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
You might also benefit from personal injury treatment at Elite Spine and Health Center if you have rotator cuff tendonitis, an overuse injury that makes it difficult to rotate your shoulder or lift your arm above your head.
When should I visit a chiropractor about a personal injury?
Make an appointment with the team at Elite Spine and Health Center if you experience a personal injury and it causes you pain or interferes with your quality of life. That’s especially true if your symptoms don’t respond to at-home treatments like over-the-counter pain medication, ice, and rest.
How is a personal injury diagnosed?
To diagnose a personal injury, your Elite Spine and Health Center provider reviews your medical history and asks about the injury, including when it occurred, what symptoms you’re experiencing, and if you’ve noticed them getting better or worse.
Next, your provider conducts a complete physical. They carefully examine the area of your body that is causing you pain, gently pressing on it to pinpoint areas of swelling, warmth, or redness. If it's a joint that’s causing your problems, they might also test its strength and range of motion.
If these steps aren’t enough to make a diagnosis, your provider orders diagnostic imaging, like X-rays, a CT scan, or an MRI. These procedures can rule out more serious issues, like fractures, torn ligaments, or dislocated joints.
How are personal injuries treated?
At Elite Spine and Health Center, the team treats personal injuries using holistic, minimally invasive treatments. After confirming a diagnosis, your provider might recommend:
- Spinal and extremity adjustments
- Sports rehabilitation
- Nonsurgical spinal decompression
- Graston® Technique manual therapy
- Myofascial release
- Biofreeze® products
- Therapeutic ultrasound
- Intersegmental traction
- Custom orthotics
Ultimately, the goal of personal injury treatment is to relieve your pain, encourage your mobility, and restore your quality of life.
