Whether you were hurt on the job, around the house or playing your favorite sport, it's hard not to take a personal injury very personally indeed. Spinal subluxation, disc problems, soft tissue strain and/or pinched nerves can rob you of your everyday routine or make it impossible to do a day's work. The good news is that you aren't necessarily destined for the operating table or a lifetime of painkillers -- because Back to Health Wellness Center offers a variety of non-invasive, drug-free treatment options.
"Personal injury" is a catch-all term used to describe any injury to your body, as opposed to your car, home or other property. These injuries can be either acute or chronic nature--for instance, you may experience a traumatic accident that produces immediate (or slightly delayed) pain and suffering, or you may slowly become aware of a nagging pain or other troublesome symptom that has developed over time. Examples of common personal injuries include:
A personal injury can sometimes produce several kinds of dysfunction all at once. In the case of whiplash, for example, the sharp, extreme motion of your head may damage soft tissues while also forcing cervical vertebrae and discs out of position, which in turn can produce disc herniation, pinched nerves and pain in the arms or hands. (A personal injury to one part of the body can often refer pain to another part of the body, making diagnosis more complicated.)
