If you are facing the pain and disability caused by a spinal injury, here are some things Dr. Simon wants you to know.
Chiropractic Care Helps Injuries of the Spine and Spinal Cord
We tend to think of injuries to the spinal cord as the result of major trauma, such as a hard fall or an auto accident injury, but spinal cord injury can also occur after seemingly "small" events. Something as simple as picking up a pet or moving the couch may result in the twisting, pulling, or compression of the spinal cord, as well as injury to joints and ligaments. Your chiropractor can treat back, neck, and joint pain caused by compression, hyperextension, or torsion of the spinal cord, as well as problems caused by ruptured discs and whiplash.
In some cases of severe trauma, it is necessary to wait to stabilize the spinal cord or the spine before beginning chiropractic treatment. In other cases, chiropractic treatment can begin right away. Every patient is unique, but he first issue addressed is typically pain. Reduction of pain is achieved through spinal adjustment, and also through drug-free methods such as electric muscle stimulation, mechanical traction, manual traction, decompression inversion, heat and ice, and hydro massage.
After treating pain, usually, the chiropractor will focus on restoring mobility. There may be a continuing need for adjustments, including the use of a traction table. The doctor may show you safe and simple exercises that reduce stiffness and prevent pain, and well as teaching you new ways of lifting objects, walking, running, and playing your favorite sports that bring back your independence and enjoyment of life.
Chiropractic care is drug-free care. Your chiropractor will never give you an addictive drug for pain treatment, and your chiropractor can give you any needed advice on nutrition for healing from the inside out so living pain-free comes naturally.
