Many people when they sustain an injury head directly to their primary care physician. This is a good way to keep your medical record straight and easy to follow as far as history goes but they might just refer you out to a chiropractor or other doctor with an area of specialty for care depending on the injury.
Back pain, neck pain, hip, knee, ankle – and even smaller bones such as those in the elbows, wrists, ankles, hands, fingers, and toes all can benefit from spinal manipulations manually with chiropractic adjustments.
While your doctor may recommend certain exercises, rest, elevation, ice, NSAID pain relievers and anti-inflammatories or even pain medication and muscle relaxers many realize that to attain true healing you have to be realigned properly and the only way to do that is through manual adjustments. If your body is out of alignment in a state of subluxation while healing it may heal improperly causing potential pain and issues down the road.
The good news is that with treatment and rest most injuries heal in a few weeks’ time. You will be evaluated and set on a treatment plan that will get you up and moving in no time. Chiropractic, just like your regular doctor, is often covered by insurance so make sure you check with your plan before heading over to a new provider.
