Common Personal Injury Complaints
The phrase “personal injury” is quite broad. It includes a plethora of different injuries and causes for those injuries. The most common of these injuries include:
- Herniated discs
- Soft tissue injuries such as whiplash
- Spinal stenosis
- Much much more
Among the common causes of personal injuries are:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Vehicular accidents
- Bad posture and/or poor ergonomics
- Repetitive movements
- Sports injuries
- Clumsiness, inattentiveness, and stupidity … sometimes it is just bad “luck” that something you are doing results in an injury.
A Closer Look at Personal Injury Problems
The spine, neck, and joints are comprised of a multitude of delicate structures that are easily damaged and/or injured. Regardless of the cause, a personal injury generally leaves our patients with a loss of mobility, difficulty completing basic daily tasks, participating in activities, stiffness, and pain.
Often it can be hard to pinpoint the cause of these symptoms as they may not present themselves until hours, days, or even weeks after the incident that caused them. However, chiropractors are trained to hunt down the cause of your symptoms and then help your body heal itself.
For example, a slip and fall accident can result in injuries like:
- Spinal misalignment
- Muscle strain
- Loss of movement in joints
These injuries may take time to appear. Whiplash itself rarely presents itself until 48 hours after the injury. However, a chiropractor can help.
