Chiropractic Care for Accidents and Injuries
Our chiropractor at Cleveland Chiropractic and Massage in Garner, NC not only treats back pain, but also provides treatment for different types of injuries including sports injuries, auto accident injuries, and work injuries. These types of injuries can cause severe pain and are oftentimes completely debilitating. Our chiropractor, Dr. Michelle Elliott, will help to alleviate pain associated with these types of injuries, as well as help you recover quickly, and prevent relapses so that you can live in optimum health and reach all your wellness goals.
Auto Accident Injury Treatment
When it comes to getting into a car accident, whiplash is the most common type of injury. Characterized by neck pain and stiffness, our Garner chiropractor can treat whiplash with safe, gentle, spinal manipulation coupled with massage, electrical therapies, gentle traction, and may even apply ice to your neck in order to reduce pain and decrease inflammation. If an underlying issue is suspected, we can issue a spinal & postural screening to address these issues as well. This can reveal important health information that is otherwise not uncovered during a general physical exam. With the results of this screening, our chiropractors: Dr. Michelle Elliott and Dr. Nicholas Ferez, can create a personalized treatment plan designed for your specific condition with the goal of getting you well as quickly as possible.
Other types of auto accident injuries we provide chiropractic care for include back pain, herniated discs and other spinal conditions, as well as headaches, arm and leg pain, and chronic pain.
Sports Injury Treatment
Sports injuries usually occur when certain joints and muscle groups get overused. Some of the most common types of sports injuries that our chiropractor treats include sprains, strains, tennis and golf elbow, shin splints, and sciatica. Enhancing joint function and reducing pain is the key to treating sports injuries. Our chiropractor alleviates pain by using a variety of chiropractic techniques including spinal adjustments, corrective exercises, and massage therapy. We also provide nutritional counseling to help athletes reach their peak performance. This form of counseling is also beneficial for overall health as we will look at how supplements and vitamins interact with your current diet and recommend changes when appropriate.
Certain parts of the body are susceptible to injury when playing sports. These body parts include the neck, shoulders, knees, ankles, and back. Chiropractic care not only effectively treats injuries to these parts of the body, but it can help to prevent future sports injuries from occurring.
Work Injury Treatment
Work injuries often happen when the same motion is done in a repetitive manner. This includes lifting, bending, twisting or typing on a keyboard. These injuries also occur with prolonged sitting or standing and poor posture. Some work injuries happen without warning, while others develop over time. The most common work injuries include carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, back pain, and muscle stiffness.
In order to treat these types of work injuries, our chiropractor will implement a variety of treatment options including spinal adjustments, massage therapy, and lifestyle advice. Our chiropractor will also stress the importance of having good posture while working and using correct ergonomics.
