Common Reasons for Chiropractic Treatment
Over the years of offering chiropractic services to patients in Colorado Springs, we’ve noticed some types of injuries are more common than others. The most common types of injuries addressed by chiropractic treatment are auto accident injury and sports injury. Auto and sports injuries often result in concussions, which lead to headaches and migraines.
Our Chiropractic Care Services Include:
Auto Accident Injury Treatment
Have you ever wondered why people don’t always experience pain after an auto accident injury? Well, that’s because, after an accident, micro-tears are formed to inhibit the pain. After some time when blood resumes flowing normally, these tissues begin to repair, resulting in pain.
That’s why we recommend chiropractic care following an accident. In most cases, auto accident injuries affect the spine. Some of the signs associated with spine injury include muscle weakness, poor coordination, headaches, and migraines.
Sports Injury Treatment
Athletes commonly experience trauma to the head, neck, knees, and back. These injuries lead to strains, tears, dislocations, and concussions. Athletes are also prone to back pains and tendon injuries. Chiropractic care is excellent for addressing these problems and more. Not only do we help athletes ease their pain and expedite their recovery, but we also help them minimize the risk of re-injury.
Sports injuries are inevitable, and what matters most is how you respond to them.
Slip and Fall Treatment
When you slip and fall, you might not think it’s a big deal, and it might not be. However, small injuries incurred in minor accidents can sometimes lead to long-term problems if not addressed promptly. Minor misalignment of the spine can lead to worse posture, which will degrade your spinal health over time. If you’re feeling off after you slip and fall at home or on the job, we'll make sure all is well.
Headache and Migraine Treatment
According to the American Chiropractic Association, 9 out of 10 Americans experience headaches. Migraines, on the other hand, are a severe type of headache that typically affects a specific point of your head. Both are treatable through chiropractic care. Through spinal adjustment, proper nervous system communication is restored, and agitated nerves become less irritated. Chiropractic adjustment also reduces muscle tension, which is a common trigger of migraine headaches.
