3 Reasons Why You Should See A Chiropractor After an Injury
As we push ourselves, try new things, and even go about our normal days- accidents and injuries are bound to happen sometimes. Luckily, our bodies are amazing and made to heal and get back to normal life as soon as possible. The musculoskeletal system is often a victim of our clumsiness, overuse, and accidents. When injury strikes, having a good understanding of how to boost your healing and recovery can help expedite the process while also preventing unnecessary suffering, chronic pain, and even disability.
Chiropractic care and injury recovery
Some injuries are truly accidents- like moving “wrong” or getting in a fender bender. Yet, more often than not there are usually some underlying issues that led to the injury. These issues typically involve a combination of overuse, poor movement patterns with daily activities, and poor overall spine alignment. Adequate rest and addressing these root issues will promote sustainable long term recovery. Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) is an expert-based, specialized branch of chirorpactics that can holistically address these issues.
Why you should work with a CBP certified chiropractor
There are many great benefits to regularly seeing a chiropractor. These benefits are magnified when working with a CBP provider. Here are 3 of the top reasons you should find a CBP practitioner in your area like Dr. Scott at Stronglife Chiropractic and Physical Therapy in Tampa and Lithia, FL.
1. Promote good spine alignment
Spine misalignment is commonly hard to detect without the help of an expert. It may have been present prior to your injury, been exacerbated, or even caused by the injury itself. Regardless, when the spine is misaligned it compromises nerve energy and the body’s ability to coordinate proper function. Addressing spine alignment should almost always be the first step in recovery after an injury.
2. Optimize tissue healing capabilities
When spine alignment is addressed first, it restores nerve flow and taps into the body’s innate potential. This allows the body to adequately and properly heal itself. Holistic non-invasive CBP care options to help with healing and overall tissue health include adjustments, education, soft tissue massage, pain-relieving modalities, lifestyle recommendations, and more. Promoting good overall health is crucial to heal as quickly as possible.
3. Long term results that help you live life to the fullest
Did you know that a previous injury increases your risk for future injuries? Luckily, if your injury is addressed holistically and well managed from the start, you will significantly decrease your risk of future issues. Regular visits to a CBP practitioner can ensure you are optimizing your quality of life and staying injury free. With a plan for keeping good spine alignment, movement patterns, and health habits- you can expect to minimize your risk of complications from an injury for the long term.
