Is a personal injury holding you back from living an active life? Without proper treatment, pain from a personal injury can continue to adversely affect your health for months or even years after the injury first occurred. At SpinalCare Physical Medicine, our chiropractic care team has substantial experience treating personal injuries with non-invasive techniques that address the underlying injury, rather than relying on medication to “cover up” pain symptoms. Our multi-dimensional health care center integrates the best in neurology, medicine, progressive chiropractic care, and rehabilitation therapy to aggressively treat personal injury pain and support whole body health.
Chiropractic Care Relieves Back Pain and Neck Pain
If you go to the doctor complaining of pain following a personal injury, your doctor may prescribe medication. Unfortunately, this medication only numbs the brain’s ability to perceive pain; once the drugs wear off, the pain will return. Our treatment approach to back pain and neck pain is different. Rather than relying on medication to cover up pain symptoms, our chiropractor uses advanced diagnostic tests to identify the root cause for your pain. For many patients, a spinal misalignment, such as a herniated disc, is the cause. For other patients, a combination of factors, such as poor posture and repetitive motions, may be triggering back pain and neck pain. By identifying the root cause, our chiropractor is able to craft a custom treatment plan that aggressively targets this pain.
Chiropractic care is an effective back and neck pain management technique because adjustments restore proper alignment to the spine. Back pain is one of the most common chronic problems following a personal injury. All it takes is an accidental slip and fall or improperly lifting a heavy object to cause a disc to slip out of alignment in the spine. As long as the spine remains misaligned, a herniated or slipped disc will continue to compress nearby nerves and trigger back pain and neck pain. Poor posture can intensify this pain by further compressing the lumbar spine and straining the cervical spine, resulting in chronic pain. Chiropractic adjustments decompress the spine and create space between the vertebrae, relieving pressure on nearby nerves for long-lasting pain relief.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, we integrate complementary therapies, such as physical therapy, into personal injury pain management. Physical therapy treatments, such as hot/cold therapy, ultrasound therapy, and mobility exercises provide enhanced pain relief while safely restoring mobility to the body without risking further injury. Our patient-centered approach to pain management means that we always take your specific needs into consideration.
For more than three decades, the team at SpinalCare Physical Medicine has helped Indianapolis pain patients find the drug-free relief they deserve after personal injuries.
