If you’ve made it through life so far without suffering a serious injury, count yourself as very lucky. Unfortunately, many and probably most people will suffer a debilitating personal injury at some point. In some cases, the body will heal on its own with rest. Often, however, intervention is necessary. Fortunately, chiropractors can offer assistance. If you're searching for injury rehabilitation in Moreno Valley or Perris, CA, contact Mendyk Chiropractic. Dr. Derick Lajom, Dr. Andrew Oh, and Dr. Kristian Mendyk can help.
When addressing injuries, it’s crucial to consider the specifics of each situation. Treating whiplash caused by a car accident may require different treatment than relieving shoulder pain caused by a sports injury or slip and fall. Fortunately, chiropractors can use a diverse number of methods and treatments to provide lasting pain relief. Let’s take a look at some of the most common and effective methods for injury rehabilitation.
Chiropractic Manipulation and Adjustments
If you end up in an accident, such as a car crash, there’s a good chance that your spine will be rattled. Since the spinal column basically acts as a foundation for the body, this can result in strained muscles, joints, and bones.
A chiropractor can gently adjust the spine to restore it to its proper shape. Doing so can relieve tension throughout the body. If you're interested in manual adjustments and injury rehabilitation in Moreno Valley or Perris, CA, contact Mendyk Chiropractic. Dr. Lajom, Dr. Oh, and Dr. Mendyk are experts when it comes to adjustments.
Traction is another type of hands-on treatment that chiropractors can perform. With this treatment, your chiropractor will gently stretch out your limbs and spine. This will encourage your muscles to relax, which in turn may result in pain relief.
Personal injuries can leave muscles bruised, strained, pulled, and torn. This can result in lingering pain. While pain medications might provide temporary relief, the aches will often return. Fortunately, through electric muscle stimulation, electrical currents can be applied to the muscles to relieve tension and reduce pain by releasing endorphins. Stimulation may also help strengthen your muscles.
With ultrasound, soundwaves are used to penetrate into muscles and other tissues. The soundwaves will create vibrations, which in turn can relieve tension and reduce strain. Soundwaves may also stimulate the body’s natural healing processes.
Custom Exercise Routines
When it comes to injury rehabilitation, the right stretches and exercises can provide relief and also build strength. Many of these stretches and exercises can be performed at home and you won’t need to buy expensive workout equipment. However, the wrong routine or incorrect motions could aggravate injuries. Fortunately, a chiropractor can show you how to perform everything correctly.
