What is Chiropractic Care And How Can It Benefit Your Health
Lots of people believe it is impossible to get injured in a minor car crash. However, we at Proactive Chiropractic & Sports Medicine have seen plenty of evidence to the contrary, especially at our Redondo Beach center. A low speed crash can hurt you in ways that are not obvious at once. Research on rear-end crashes reveals a lack of correlation between speed and injury, which means even a fender-bender can cause problems that demand professional treatment to address. In many cases, the pain and disability are encountered as late as a decade after the fact.
Collision patients stand to benefit from chiropractic adjustments carried out by experienced professionals, especially in recouping from being subjected to forces simply too great to sustain without injury. Effects from such forces usually comprise subsequent strain on the neck, shoulders, and back, and sometimes even damage to some of the ligaments holding the spine together. The resulting drop in mobility, along with scar tissue in the spine, can lead to chronic pain, which can render patients unable to move as well as usual, and is often accompanied by inflammation. Putting up with this for too long can lead to disability, while in the meantime, your quality of life stays severely impaired.
Early treatment is a vital step in ensuring that the problem does not regress, which is one of the first things we work on after you first show up at our Redondo Beach center. After diagnosis through the use of state-of-the-art equipment and practices, our chiropractor team decides exactly what your treatment should entail. We provide physical therapy, massage therapy, orthopedic sports medicine, chiropractic therapy, acupuncture, cold laser therapy, post-accident treatment, and spinal decompression therapy.
What we choose for you among these is tailored to suit you personally, with the aim of getting you back to full mobility and painlessness in the fastest possible manner. This chiefly involves making adjustments that restore the natural function of the spine, and consequently, normal motion. We work complementarily with other healthcare providers such as medical doctors, physiotherapists, and occupational therapists, facilitating a networking of resources whose use can expedite your recovery.
