Everyday, thousands of active people-adults as well as kids-suffer neuromusculoskeletal injuries that send them to the chiropractic doctor for care.
Though it’s quite a mouthful, neuromusculoskeletal injury translated into everyday English merely means injuries involving the nerves, muscles, bones, ligaments, and joints the kind of injuries that happen to people in motion while playing, exercising in sports, painting the house, yard work … most any activity, really.
IGNORED MINOR INJURIES OFTEN BECOME CHRONIC
A serious injury demands immediate attention and usually gets it, while a so-called minor injury is all too often ignored. But all injuries start as acute and easily become chronic if aggravated or reinjured, or if treatment is late in coming, inadequate or incomplete.
CAN LEAD TO BACK TROUBLE
Worse yet, even minor sprains and strains of a hip, knee, or ankle can throw the body’s bony framework off balance-especially the spine-and thereby bring on serious back pain and trouble. That’s another critical reason injury victims must take all injuries seriously, even minor ones.
Given prompt attention, the majority of injuries respond well to chiropractic care.
STAY WITH DOCTOR’S TREATMENT PLAN
Shortcutting treatment nearly always ends up negative. When injured persons quit treatment too soon-as soon as they begin to feel betterit’s like the fire department leaving the fire scene as soon as the flames are squelched, though the embers are still smoking and likely to flare up again.
Patients who stay with the recommended chiropractic treatment program-until both the “fire and embers” are out-have the best chance for optimum healing.
Give your chiropractor the time nature requires to help heal you. A chiropractor’s skill and knowledge are always directed to guiding the healing process and shortening the healing time.
CHIROPRACTIC’S INJURY EXPERIENCE
Treating injured, top-ranking athletes is one of chiropractic’s brightest showcases. Many professional and college teams keep a chiropractor on staff to look after sports injuries from simple sprains and strains to more serious problems resulting from intensive training and hard competitive play.
Regardless of who is injured, be it weekend golfer, Little Leaguer, pro football player, or Olympic star – sports and recreational injuries, even mild ones, should always have a chiropractic evaluation. There is no virtue in building and maintaining a healthy body through sports activity today, if a neglected injury causes a health problem tomorrow.
Collectively, chiropractic doctors give more than one million manipulations per day. Individually, they give hundreds every week … hundreds of thousands or more in a practice lifetime.
That tremendous volume of experience and know-how often make the chiropractor the doctor of choice for structural injuries not requiring surgery.
WHAT IS ACUTE INJURY?
An injury is considered to be acute from the time it occurs until it is fully and completely healed.
WHAT IS CHRONIC INJURY?
An injury is considered to be chronic when the healing is incomplete or the
victim is left with residual healing problems requiring ongoing treatment.
