If you’ve had an auto accident injury or another orthopedic injury, you might need a chiropractor, and Ringer Chiropractic is here to help you with your personal injury care in Tracy, CA.
What Is a Personal Injury?
A personal injury is any kind of injury that happens to your person. If you’ve been harmed psychologically, physically, or emotionally, you have suffered a personal injury. Your injury could be an auto collision, a sports injury, a workplace fall, injuries suffered at home, from a defective product, or some other form of negligence or malice. Your injuries are important, and you deserve the best treatment for them.
How Do You Know You’ve Been Injured?
Different injuries cause different manifestations of symptoms. The sharp pain of a broken bone or the deep ache of a bruise is obvious, but other injuries have symptoms that aren’t as familiar. If you have whiplash, for example, from a car accident, your injury might result in neck pain, a headache, vision issues, even confusion and difficulty speaking. Your slip and fall injury could result in tingling or weakness in your legs and back. If you did too much on your epic pickleball day last weekend, you could end up with sore muscles and tennis elbow. Many injuries spill over into other parts of your life, too.
Make sure that you understand how your body works because injury harms can manifest in very different ways than you might expect. Shoulder injuries are especially difficult to heal because the shoulder is a confluence of bones, not a solid socket, and any bone being out of place can result in the entire joint becoming less stable, prolonging the injury and the pain you feel from it.
How Do You Treat These Injuries?
The first line of treatment for most orthopedic injuries is the classic acronymic treatment of RICE: Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. Getting an injured body part rest will do a lot to help it heal; ice, compression, and elevation help by reducing the swelling of fluid gathering in a bruise, strain, or injured joint. But once that’s reached its limits of aid, Ringer Chiropractic can help get your body back into shape by realigning the components of joints. Our adjustment techniques are not limited to just spinal injuries; we can help you get your shoulders, knees, and hips back into line and help speed healing along.
