There is a common misconception, from the influx of advertising by lawyers and television shows, about what a personal injury is. From the point-of-view of a personal injury chiropractor, a personal injury has nothing to do with the legal ramifications of getting hurt in an accident.
Rather, a personal injury is an injury that has caused a person to be in a state of pain. Personal injuries can be as simple as falling out of a chair, slipping on your own floor, backing your car into a post, or any one of a million tiny things that happen which can throw your body out of alignment.
As a personal injury chiropractor, we find it is very important to quickly identify what is causing a patient pain. This is especially important if it is the result of a personal injury accident. This way, we can start to treat it holistically as soon as possible.
At the chiropractic office, the focus is on making sure that the patient's body, especially the spinal cord, is in the proper alignment. This leads to a situation where a patient's body is able to start the process of healing itself. As a personal injury chiropractic clinic, we know that even the smallest injury can lead to the misalignment of the joints, spinal cord and other essential connectivity within the body.
This can then lead to an extreme amount of pain as well as the inability for the body to heal itself properly. By taking a holistic approach to healing, this personal injury chiropractic clinic is able to provide clients with a quality of life that is critical after an accident.
Time is of the essence
After an injury, believe it or not, the body will start to heal itself regardless of whether the patient takes actions for it to heal properly or not. Often, we hear stories about bones setting improperly, joints that align in the improper way and all kinds of problems that result from the spinal cord and joints being out of alignment.
Misaligned joints, especially in the spinal column, can lead to chronic headaches, fatigue and other unpleasant situations. In order to avoid this, it is important for the patient to seek out personal injury chiropractic care as soon as they are in an accident or as soon as a medical doctor clears them to get chiropractic treatment.
