3 Common Accidents and the Power of Chiropractic
By Genevieve Cunningham
Accidents are a part of life. You can’t get around them, and you can’t avoid them. As frustrating as they might be, there’s not much you can do to prevent accidents from happening on their own schedule. And perhaps the most unfortunate part of all is that accidents almost inevitably bring pain on some level. So what can you do? How can you be prepared for the unexpected? If you like to plan ahead, protect your health, and keep your body in the best condition, take a look at these three common accidents and why chiropractic care should be on your to-do list.
Unfortunately, car accidents happen. From fender benders to major accidents, these little mishaps can cause both pain and injury. In some situations, immediate care is necessary. But in more minor accidents, chiropractors may be able to help work out stiffness and soreness in the back and neck that generally come with car accidents. They may also be able to help with the incredibly common side effect of whiplash. If you’ve recently been in an accident and are feeling a bit of pain, seeing the chiropractor might be the next best stop. However, The Joint's chiropractors do not engage in checkups that are part of legal actions or for insurance purposes.
Exercise is definitely a great thing to have in your life. It strengthens the body and keeps your stamina up. But sometimes, a misstep or overuse or an accident leaves our bodies injured. Chiropractors may be able to help by removing pain from the back, neck, and joints, thus keeping your body more mobile and better able to withstand the wear and tear of exercise. Research also shows that a combination of chiropractic care and exercise is one of the best ways to manage pain long-term and keep your body in overall better condition. For better health and pain-free living, exercise and chiropractic care may be the perfect combination.
We don’t like to think about being injured at work, but it definitely happens. In some cases, the injury is severe, especially when your job includes manual labor. In other situations, the injury comes about due to excessive sitting, inactivity, or repetitive movements. Whichever the case may be for you, chiropractors may be able to work out those sore spots and make your body more comfortable and work more bearable. If you’re experiencing pain due to working conditions, seeing a chiropractor might be your best bet.
