Conservative spinal adjustments are a practical and safe method to speed recovery from motor vehicle, work accident or personal injury. Chiropractic care combined with well-tested therapies such as ultra-sound to reduce swelling and electrical muscle stimulation to reduce pain significantly shorten recovery time from injury by reducing inflammation, swelling, edema and pain. If you are recently injured in any of the above noted ways, take immediate action and call 651-699-3366!
The elements for treatment of acute injury are as follows: Spinal Adjustment/Correction, Appropriate Therapy, Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation.
Spinal adjustment: [usually within 2-3 days after acute symptoms subside] insures correction of nerve interference, due or caused by joint incongruity or misalignment, between brain and spine as well as between the spine and the body.
Rest: allows the body to heal without further injury.
Ice: keeping metabolism to a minimum, restriction of the blood flow, diminishing fluid leakage into the injured area and hastening the repair process. Icing also for quick reduction pain and therefore shortened recovery time. The most practical external active principle of inflammation reduction post-injury [20 minutes on and 40 minutes off], for 72 hours after the date of the injury.
Compression: accomplished by application of an ACE bandage, applies from the bottom up, or beginning by starting on area furthest from the heart.
Elevation: increase in time keeping the area of injured tissue supported and elevated above the heart but not too high as to cause discomfort.
