If you’ve been injured in a fall, auto accident, or other mishap, Dr. Janice Cheatwood at Cheatwood Chiropractic, your personal injury chiropractor in Brandon, FL, can help you get back to your pre-accident life.
What Is a Personal Injury Chiropractor?
The human body is made up of several intricate systems, all of which have an important role in the body’s overall health and functions. While the body is designed to be strong, injuries can knock these systems off track.
For example, even a seemingly insignificant fall can move a vertebra out of its proper alignment. When it does, it can cause pain, suffering, and more. This is where personal injury chiropractors can help. They ensure that your musculoskeletal system is properly aligned, functioning properly, and not interfering with the nervous system.
Common Personal Injuries
Personal injuries come in various forms, but they typically fall into one of the following categories:
- Workplace injuries
- Slips and falls
- Auto accidents
While whiplash is one of the most common complaints associated with personal injuries, others include:
- Sprains and strains
- Herniated discs
- Joint pain
- Soft tissue injuries
- Injuries to the nervous system
For some people, symptoms present almost immediately and include headaches, muscle tension, pain, tingling, weakness, and more. For others, the symptoms of an injury do not show up for days or weeks due to the shock of the injury. It’s important to see a chiropractor as soon as possible after an injury, even if you don’t yet feel any pain.
