Personal Injuries FAQs from Our Franklin TN Chiropractor

What can you chiropractor do for your personal injuries?

At Schroder chiropractic, we offer pain management and natural healing to our patients. Some of the most common techniques we use to treat patients include:

  • Spinal adjustment. This technique helps us realign the spine and restore proper functioning to the central nervous system. Spinal adjustment puts the vertebrae back in place to relieve pressure on the spinal cord, which can relieve symptoms like tingling, numbness and pain. In addition, spinal adjustment helps the brain communicate with the rest of the body, which can help the body heal more quickly from its injuries. Spinal adjustment is effective treatment for sprains, strains, herniated disc, whiplash and other forms of personal injuries.
  • Massage therapy. This treatment helps improve circulation to the injured area and helps improve range of motion after an accident occurs. Massage therapy is also a natural form of pain management.
  • Stretches and exercises. Doing therapeutic stretches and exercises can help patients improve range of motion and maintain muscle strength during their recovery. Stretches and exercises can also help patients manage their back pain and neck pain while working on healing outside of the chiropractic clinic.
  • Lifestyle advice. We teach patients how to adopt healthy habits and behaviors that can lead to a faster recovery.

Why should you seek personal injury treatment after a slip, fall or accident even if you don't feel symptoms?

Not all personal injuries will show symptoms immediately after the accident occurs. Some conditions, like whiplash, can take days or weeks to manifest. In that time, patients can exacerbate their condition. This can lead to chronic pain and a lifelong struggle with the injury. If you've experienced an accident but have not yet showed symptoms of injury, come see the chiropractor in Franklin TN. He or she can diagnose your condition.
