Physical injuries can take place at any moment, whether you are going for a light jog around the neighborhood or lifting heavy objects.
Some personal injuries require simple treatment solutions like an ice pack or rest, but others can cause significant damage to your body that develops into chronic pain over time.
Fortunately, there are a variety of treatment solutions that our Atlanta Chiropractors use to help patients recover from some of the most common injuries, including back pain and torn ligaments.
If you are suffering from an injury that has lasted more than two weeks, consider the following recommendations that help relieve pain and stimulate your body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Stretching is an excellent solution for recovering from spinal injuries.
In order to prevent your back from locking up and to remain mobile, it’s important to stay active to avoid stiffness that certain injuries may bring. It’s important to focus on your spine’s range of motion and stretching allows the ligaments that run throughout your back to remain loose or of stress.
When you visit with one of our Atlanta Chiropractors, they can show you a number of controlled stretches that help restrengthen your injured back and allow you to follow through with your routine.
As you follow through with the stretches that your AICA Chiropractor provides, you can also prevent future injuries or relapses by adhering to our strengthening solutions.
For those who suffer from back pain, adding a strengthening component to your recovery routine helps build muscle mass to a degree that you become less vulnerable to various joint conditions or torn ligaments.
Some of the strengthening exercises your Atlanta Chiropractor may recommend include:
Water therapy serves as a gentle solution for conditioning and strengthening particular injuries that are extremely painful or sensitive.
Performing specific exercises in the comfort of a pool help create light friction, which helps your recover from your injury while also protecting your body from the impact of working out.
Personal injuries can be painful and the road to recovery is often extremely stressful for those who refuse to seek professional Chiropractic treatment.
Although the recommendations provided here are helpful for rehabilitating your body after an injury, it’s important to have an experienced Chiropractor perform a complete examination to determine the best course of action for recovery.
