When you’re injured, whether in a traumatic incident or through repetitive stress over time, you want to take full advantage of the tools available to you during your recovery. Getting the right care after an injury ensures that you recover as quickly as possible and that you heal right with minimal complications.
At Living Water Clinic, our team of family medicine doctors connect you with the care you need to overcome injuries and heal stronger than before. Under the leadership of Dr. Erick Madrigal, we treat new and existing patients at locations in Porterville, Lindsay, Visalia, and Woodlake, California.
In some cases, your provider at Living Water Clinic may suggest chiropractic care as part of your recovery. Here’s what we want you to know about the benefits of chiropractic treatment for healing after an injury.
Chiropractic care and healing
Healing from an injury means that your body has to work overtime. Healing consumes your body’s resources and stresses your internal systems. That’s why overcoming injuries involves holistic care for your entire body.
Chiropractic care and other forms of holistic medicine focus on your body’s function. Chiropractic care — a complementary medicine that pairs well with primary care — addresses issues with alignment, tension, or other musculoskeletal problems.
Chiropractors use their hands or special instruments to apply controlled force to your joints, including spinal joints. Treatment improves whole-body blood flow, which combats inflammation.
After an injury, you may find yourself dealing with lingering pain, ongoing stiffness, or joint dysfunction. Chiropractic care helps you deal with these symptoms while you heal and ensures that you heal right.
Receiving this type of care can even shorten your overall recovery period, so you can get back to your daily life activities that much sooner.
Types of injuries that benefit from chiropractic care
Some types of injuries that are more likely to benefit from chiropractic care include:
- Whiplash and neck pain after a car accident
- Back pain after a strained muscle
- Injuries that form scar tissue
Chiropractic care is especially helpful if your injury may have caused subluxations and misaligned vertebrae in your spine.
Studies show that chiropractic typically works best on spinal issues like low back pain and headaches. But evidence also shows that you may also benefit from chiropractic care if you have an ankle sprain, carpal tunnel syndrome, or repetitive stress conditions like tennis elbow.
