Personal Injury Q & A

What is the Definition of a Personal Injury?


A personal injury is a type of injury that results from an accident that was not the fault of the individual who has been hurt. The area in which this term is most often used are legal cases, where a personal injury victim seeks compensation for the pain and suffering experienced as a result of the incident. Oftentimes, the injuries sustained in these types of cases are life-altering, and can result in debilitating and chronic pain in the absence of effective treatment.


What Are Some of the Most Common Causes of Personal Injury?

Personal injuries can happen any where at any time. These injuries most commonly occur as a result of the following incidents:

    • Any kind of traffic collision (e.g. accidents involving cars, pedestrians, bicycles, etc.)
    • Slipping and falling
    • Workplace accidents


What Types of Pain and Injuries are Most Often Experienced as a Result of a Personal Injury?

Although there are some injuries that can be treated as a result of the initial treatment at the hospital, there are many others that can turn into lifelong problems. Some of the more common issues that need a long-term care plan include the following:


    • Neck injuries
    • Whiplash injuries
    • Back injuries
    • Injuries to the joints
    • Hip injuries
    • Herniated Discs
    • Pinched Nerve/Nerve Damage


Why Seek Chiropractic Care for Your Injury?

When an individual experiences a personal injury, the initial trauma is often severe enough to require hospitalization, physical therapy, crutches, and/or casts. Another common component of conventional treatment is medication. Unfortunately, when pain from an injury becomes chronic, so can the usage of habit-forming pain relievers.

While the initial treatment for an injury is effective and necessary, there are often limited options provided for safe, long-term healing and recovery of damage sustained to the spine, nerves and soft tissue (muscles, ligaments and nerves).

One of the most safe and effective ways to treat injuries and prevent long term/chronic issues after a personal injury is through chiropractic treatment protocol that could include: cervical traction, physical therapies, adjustments and neuromuscular reeducation. All these treatments and therapy could help resolve, improve spinal damage and pain caused from the injury. 

After receiving a thorough assessment, a treatment plan that will address your specific needs would be created.
