Frequent Chronic Injury Types

Chronic injuries come from a variety of problems and causes, some of which you would never even think of. However, the most common causes are also the result of some very common activities that most of us do daily. Next, we will cover some of the most frequent injuries and explain why chiropractic care is the most effective option for them.

Auto accidents

Unlike other activities where a healthy lifestyle will prevent most of the injuries, a car accident is completely inevitable and unpredictable. Many people end up with different injuries with the most common being whiplash. Whiplash is the result of sudden head movement, leading it to whip back and forward with no control. The violent motion traumatized your neck so that when you try to move it, at certain points it hurts you so bad that you can’t keep it like that. 

Spinal manipulative therapy is best treatment to manage and treat this condition. When applied correctly, it can provide proper joint motion around the damaged regions of your neck, which allows you to properly recover. It helps very well with damaged soft tissues and also other spinal injuries caused by auto accidents.

Work injuries

Inappropriate work routine can lead to a numerous series of chronic and acute problems such as low back issues caused by improper sitting and positioning. 

Evaluation and treatment from your chiropractor is also the most effective care method for these cases as they help with giving a proper diagnosis and treatment to help you heal and recover from your injury.

Injuries caused by sports

Sports injuries are so different that it could range from a single scratch to a life-trauma. However, most of the serious injuries gained from practicing various sports can be treated with care provided by a chiropractor. Many injuries of that type are based on damaged soft tissues that not only reduce the athlete’s performance but also tear down the damaged part of the body.

Chiropractic treatment is working very well for common injuries like strains and sprains as well as certain temporary painful fractures. The pain-relieving helps the body to heal faster and stronger. 

Wear and Tear Injuries

Injuries caused by everyday improper conditions are becoming more and more common within older generations as they usually are sitting in a poor posture, allow stress to destroy their body or lift improperly. This often leads to back spine and neck injuries that fortunately can be treated very efficiently with chiropractic treatment.
