Personal injuries are a common part of life. Focusing on the musculoskeletal system, a chiropractor can make an excellent personal injury doctor. At Kim Chiropractic, our doctors offer the Elkins Park, PA, area treatments for common injuries including whiplash or shoulder, neck, back, and hip pain. This can include chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, and electrical muscle stimulation.
Personal Injury Doctor
Injuries usually happen around the home, at work, or on the road. A simple fall at home can lead to spinal misalignment. Carrying too much at work can cause subluxations as well as muscle soreness. Even the smallest bumper tap can lead to whiplash, bruising, and sore muscles.
Depending on the type of injury, our doctors can offer multiple treatments to fix the issue at the source.
Personal Injury Treatments
Our doctors have several options for treating personal injuries. Some of these can include:
It is extremely easy for vertebrae to become misaligned after an impact accident. If they become misaligned, any nerve roots or discs can become pinched, resulting in pain, tingling, or numbness. Lower back muscles will also need to work harder to compensate for the load on the back.
During a chiropractic adjustment, one of our doctors will manually place the joints/discs back into their original places. Doing this will relieve any of the symptoms experienced by the pinched nerves or discs.
The body contains meridian points that control the flow and channels of chi. Placing needles in specific meridians can be used to focus the chi to target areas. Acupuncture has been particularly useful in treating lower back, neck, and joint pain, some of the most frequent issues with personal injuries.
Electrical Stimulation Therapies
By inducing electrical current to target areas, muscles can be forced to flex and relax. This has been shown to reduce swelling, inflammation, and uncontrollable muscle spasms as well as improve circulation, blood flow, and recovery time of injuries.
