Musculoskeletal injuries such as whiplash can be incredibly painful. Not only that, but these may take a while to heal. While you may not have cuts and bruises, your body is still in pain. If you don’t get treatment from a physical therapist in Little Rock, your chronic pain could get worse.
Chronic pain, especially that of the musculoskeletal variety, can ruin your life. It could lead to not being able to enjoy basic activities like walking or running. Sleeping can be difficult, as you lack concentration because you’re always thinking about the pain.
Is Chiropractic Rehabilitation Right For Me?
If this sounds like you, chiropractic rehabilitation can give you some relief so you can get back to your life. This rehabilitation includes many treatments, like pain management, senior care, balance training, mobility improvement, and flexibility & posture improvement.
You may also receive other forms of physical therapy as well as spinal manipulations and active and passive treatments. These techniques don’t just reduce your symptoms. It’s easy to treat chronic pain symptoms, but that’s a short-term treatment. As long as the cause of the pain goes unresolved, your symptoms will return. Instead, we target what’s causing the pain.
One of the most common musculoskeletal injuries is whiplash. This can be caused by a car accident, slip, and fall, and any other incident in which your head whips forward and jerks back quickly.
The result of whiplash is often a spinal misalignment, which often leads to neck pain. When your body moves in such an unnatural way, the nerves and muscles in the spine stretch, causing nerve damage, slipped discs, bulging discs, or herniated discs.
Even though your neck and spine are affected when you suffer from whiplash, the rest of your body may be symptomatic, too. You may notice your muscles have stiffened to the point where you’re extremely uncomfortable. Nerve compression can lead to a lack of feeling or intense radiating pain throughout the body.
We encourage you to come see us at Pain Care Associates. We effortlessly blend physical therapy and chiropractic treatments to treat the source of your chronic musculoskeletal pain. Often, we’ll prescribe a spinal adjustment, which can restore the straightness of a misaligned spine. Nerve damage is lessened and pain is reduced.
We may recommend you see a physical therapist in addition to receiving these spinal adjustments. When you meet with our physical therapist in Little Rock, you’ll correct the other damage that may have occurred after your accident. This includes posture issues and immobility.
If you are immobile after whiplash, our physical therapist will offer joint mobilization, soft tissue mobilization, or spinal stabilization. By combining these with gentle exercises, mobility should return.
At Pain Care Associates, we treat the source of your pain. With our chiropractic care and physical therapy, whether you’re suffering from whiplash, another musculoskeletal injury, or any other source of pain, we’re confident we can turn your life around.
