Dr. Edwards treats many types of personal injuries without prescribing drugs or recommending surgery. Personal injuries affecting your musculoskeletal system typically involve falls, auto accidents, impact injuries, workplace accidents and repetitive motion injuries. We will give you an in-depth diagnosis of your injury, identify the cause of pain and stiffness, and develop a personalized treatment program designed to facilitate recovery.
Why Chiropractic Medicine is Effective in Treating Personal Injuries
Adjustments, therapeutic massage, spinal decompression, nutritional guidance and lifestyle changes are chiropractic techniques that focus on reducing pain and improving your health by healing your whole body. Principles of chiropractic medicine stress that the spine and its thousands of nerves extending into all parts of your body have a significant impact on your overall health. Ensuring that spinal vertebrae remain aligned and in their proper positions prevents nerve compression, nerve irritation, and inflammation of nerves. When nerves function normally without being compressed or crushed by displaced vertebrae, they provide the rest of the body with healthy innervation and optimized nerve signaling. This is why chiropractic techniques work so effectively to eliminate musculoskeletal pain due to personal injuries, headaches/migraines, symptoms of fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome and many other disorders associated with a dysfunctional nervous system.
Most personal injury recovery programs created by Dr. Edwards involve a spinal adjustment, a gentle but effective method of restoring alignment to the spine. Spinal adjustments optimize the biomechanics of the spine by easing pressure on irritated nerves caused by displaced vertebrae. In addition, an adjustment promotes blood flow to the spine to further support healthy functioning of your nervous system.
Chiropractic Massage Therapy
Therapeutic massage not only decreases stress on the spine, but also encourages holistic healing of injured soft tissues by encouraging the flow of fresh blood and lymphatic fluids throughout the body. Maintaining excellent circulation of all blood-related fluids is essential for reducing tissue inflammation and strengthening damaged muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Depending on the type and severity of your personal injury, Dr. Edwards may develop a dietary plan that provides food-based vitamins and minerals to help your body heal faster and better. In some cases, dietary supplements may also benefit your recovery by providing nutrients conducive to healing soft tissue injuries. If you have suffered a personal injury, we offer relief from pain and stiffness without drugs or surgery.
