An injury can render an otherwise-healthy body complete unfit to perform its daily tasks, robbing you of your ability to work, play, help around the house, and generally enjoy your life. Whether acute or chronic in nature, injuries can leave you with pain, stiffness, loss of function, and a variety of unpleasant neurological issues.
But injuries can also be overcome through the proper mix of rehabilitation techniques. Our chiropractor in Sarasota FL, Dr. Kuskin, can craft your very own injury rehabilitation program using all-natural, non-invasive methods to banish symptoms and restore function.
Acute sports, injuries, workplace injuries, and auto accident injuries can do an enormous amount of damage in a fraction of a second. A car collision may tear tendons and muscles, knock joints out of alignment, and create herniated discs that pinch sensitive nerve tissue. Whiplash is a well-known example of such an injury to the neck and cervical spine, while low back pain and sciatica are common occurrences of lumbar injuries.
But don't assume that you have to be in an accident to suffer an injury. Constant repetitive motions in your job, or in your favorite sport, can cause specific parts of your body to suffer from overuse-related strains such as tendinitis and soft tissue inflammation. Tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, runner's knee, and rotator cuff injuries may develop over time into chronic problems for athletes. Carpal tunnel syndrome and plantar fasciitis are just a couple of the injuries office workers may develop through repetitive motions on the job.
An injury may heal improperly or incompletely without rehabilitation. Back to Health Wellness Center is the ideal place to undergo this healing process. In addition to correcting the immediate causes and symptoms of your injury through chiropractic care and other conservative care techniques, we can identify areas of your physical alignment, work ergonomics, sports technique or other lifestyle factors that may increase your vulnerability to injuries. This helps us create a personalized rehabilitation plan that not only gets you moving and healing but also sets the stage for fewer injuries in the future.
A combination of physical therapy and corrective exercises can strengthen areas of the body weakened by injuries, either from direct damage or as a result of atrophy. Our chiropractor in Sarasota FL may prescribe heat or ice applications, cold laser therapy or massage therapy to ease pain and accelerate healing in injured tissues. Ultrasound and electrical stimulation can also aid this process. Balance exercises can help you regain physical stability, and while stretches and other mobilization exercises can give you back your range of motion.
