We never plan on getting injured, however, injuries can happen in a split second. Regardless of whether you are a parent, child, grandparent, athlete, firefighter or grocery store clerk, injuries are a simple part of life. In some cases, these can be relatively minor while other times they may be rather severe, but many times they all need proper treatment for recovery. Many injuries will respond well to chiropractic care from our caring professionals at our Anchorage chiropractic office.

Common Chronic Injuries

The vast majority of chronic injuries that will require chiropractic care typically come from a handful of sources. In some cases, they may be the result of auto accidents, work-related, sports injuries or general injuries from daily life.

Let’s take a closer look at each one:

Work-Related Injuries

Injuries that occur at work can include a wide variety of boats chronic and acute conditions, but the most common that are treated by chiropractors include carpal tunnel syndrome and back-related issues due to excessive sitting. Both of these injuries respond quite well to chiropractic care and enable you to return to work without much missed time.

Automobile Accidents

One of the most common injuries involving an automobile accident is that of whiplash, in which the head whips back and forward in a violent motion. This can create a great deal of pain and suffering, however, through the efforts of chiropractic care, it is an injury that can be treated and cared for easily.

Sports-Related Injuries

It is almost impossible for an athlete not to receive some type of injury on or off the field. The vast majority of sports-related injuries are due to soft tissue trauma such as strains and sprains, which is one of the reasons chiropractic treatment is so effective. Chiropractors are also able to treat sports injuries during the early stages when it is simply a matter of pain and swelling.

Daily Wear And Tear Injuries

Typical injuries to the back and neck happen every single day and can because by simple wearing care as our growing population continues to age. Many of these injuries can be due to poor posture, strained muscles, the natural curve of the spine, stress, improper fittings and general damage to the desks. Our Anchorage chiropractic team is one of the best solutions to ensure your body remains healthy and moving throughout your golden years.
