What to Consider After a Back Injury and Why You Need A Chiropractor In Atlanta | AICA Atlanta

If you have suffered a low back injury, your main goal is likely to recover as quickly as possible. There are a variety of steps that you can take in order to speed up your recovery, including treating acute pain at home and consulting with a chiropractor located in Atlanta.

Treat Acute Back Pain

Initially after a back injury, it is important to take steps to treat the pain in order to minimize the impact the injury has on your daily life.

Stop your normal physical activity for a few days to help reduce inflammation in the back. Use ice to reduce pain for the first 48-72 hours, and then switch to heat.

Use over-the-counter pain relievers like Tylenol or ibuprofen, and avoid activities that involve twisting the back or heavy lifting.
