Injury Rehabilitation with Our Chiropractor in Altamonte Springs
Chiropractic care can help with a variety of different injuries, from neck, back, to limb. During the exam, our chiropractor at Beyond Medical will make manual spine adjustments that will improve your range of motion and function and reduce nerve irritation which is causing you pain. When the spine is in balance, muscle tension is relieved.
What Types of Injuries Can Be Treated?
Chiropractic care is particularly important in helping to prevent injuries and can also greatly help if you’re already injured. We see many injuries that result from either forceful impact or repetitive motion injuries. For example, we see slip and fall injuries in the winter because of ice and in the summer because of swimming pools. Our office has seen its share of muscle strains and sprains, and shoulder and ACL injuries, too.
No matter where your injury is—back, knee, ankle or shoulder—chiropractic care can definitely help. We typically use two techniques—either spinal manipulation or mobilization—for treatment. Manipulation involves relieving pressure on particular joints to align muscles to relieve pain. The mobilization is used for patients who need more gentle treatment; we use simple stretches to relieve joint pressure.
How We Help
We’ll first explain how chiropractic care helps with range of motion injuries in the head, neck and spine. Next, we’ll perform a non-invasive chiropractic exam to assess your current range of motion and muscle strength, then we will perform the chiropractic adjustment, which is a manual manipulation of the spinal vertebrae.
We can also use more traditional methods for pain and inflammation, such as heat, ice or electrical impulse stimulation. The best thing about our treatment is that we can help prevent future injuries. If you play sports, always wear the proper protective gear for your particular sport and do the proper warm-ups. If you already have a minor sports injury, don’t push it because it will more than likely become a major injury. Also consider coming in to see us for an evaluation before you begin playing your sport. We’ll get your spine and muscle imbalances corrected; your body will work naturally and you’ll be less prone to injury.
