CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR INJURIES
Chiropractic is essential care for the treatment of spinal injuries.
Spinal injuries can be from trauma or repetitive strain. The most common cause of traumatic spinal injury is motor vehicle accidents. Injury to the spinal joints, discs, muscles and ligaments, result in positional and mechanical abnormalities. These abnormalities in turn adversely affect the neurological component of the spinal leading to a loss of structural integrity and body function.
Leaving spinal injuries uncorrected leads to spinal degeneration and problems that can become chronic in nature. There can be permanent loss of normal motion, a loss of spinal stability, development of disc problems and an increase of pain pathway activity leading to chronic pain.
Chiropractic care is essential for the restoration of normal position and mechanics of the spine and for normalizing vertebral joint neurophysiology.
