Treatment for Personal Injuries
Suffering from a painful personal injury is never fun to deal with. Personal injuries refer to any physical harm sustained in fall accidents, car accidents, sports injuries, and more. If you are looking for a way to relieve your pain, we can help. At Signature Health Clinic in Portland, OR, we offer chiropractic care for personal injuries and other painful conditions.
Personal injuries usually vary in severity, and can heal completely or cause chronic pain. That’s why it’s important to get help right after you sustain an injury. Our team of experts can diagnose your injury and create a treatment plan that is right for you. The treatment methods we use are drug-free, natural, and safe, and often have longer-lasting results than other treatment options.
Types of Injuries
Our chiropractor and specialists can help with a variety of personal injuries. There are some injuries that are more commonly sustained than others.
Auto accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injuries. Injuries occur in incidences involving trucks, cars, motorcycles, pedestrians, and bicycles. Whether you get involved in an accident as a driver, passenger, or pedestrian, you are likely to suffer from an injury. The most common injury from car accidents is whiplash, but they can also cause soft tissue injuries, fractures, headaches, and more.
Slips and Falls
Personal injuries can occur when someone slips or falls on a surface. Unintentional falling is one of the most common causes of non-fatal injuries because they can happen so easily. Slips and falls may result in strained ligaments, tendons, and muscles. This can restrict mobility if left untreated.
Workplace injuries might occur from trips and falls, a hazardous working environment, and interaction with dangerous materials. Poor sitting positions can lead to neck, shoulder, and back pain. Heavy lifting can also strain muscles and tendons, causing pain and muscle stiffness.
How We Can Help
When you visit our chiropractor, we start by inquiring about your medical history. The next step is evaluating your injuries and movements. In some instances, you may need X-rays to determine the severity of your injury. Our specialists will then recommend a chiropractic treatment plan. We offer a variety of tools and strategies to treat a personal injury, including:
- Spinal adjustment: This form of treatment aligns your neck and spine for better spinal functioning, reducing pressure on your nerves.
- Massage therapy: We use massages to mitigate tension in your muscles and improve blood circulation to facilitate natural healing.
- Physical therapy: This helps in rebuilding your muscles after an injury. Our chiropractor uses a combination of exercises and stretches to aid with your health and mobility.
