Get the Chiropractic Care and Treatment Necessary to Manage Your Chronic Pain

People require chiropractic care for a wide variety of injuries and reasons. Whether it was a car accident, sports injury, workplace injury, or even if you're experiencing back or neck pain, we can take care of your chronic pain and keep it down to a manageable level. Here are some of the common injuries and conditions that can be treated by chiropractic care.

Chiropractic Care for Sports Injuries

Most people think of sports as a fun weekend activity or hobby they enjoy with friends. However, for those that play professional sports, having an injury affects your very livelihood. That's why it's so critically important to find a pain management method and injury rehabilitation style that works for your body and lifestyle. Receiving chiropractic treatment can address several different kinds of sports injuries, no matter how you sustained them. Some of the typical sports injuries that chiropractic care treatment can remedy include:

  • Strains

  • Sprains

  • Knee injuries

  • Swollen muscles

  • Achilles tendon injuries

  • Shin splints

  • Dislocations

  • Fractures

The standard treatments for these injuries usually comprise physical therapy, spinal decompression, spinal adjustments, tissue massage, and physical rehabilitation. One of the best aspects of using chiropractic care for sports injuries is that it's a non-invasive method and doesn't have any adverse side effects of physical dependence. That means you can be feeling better and back out on the field or court in no time.1

Chiropractic Care for Car Accidents

It's critically important to visit a chiropractor immediately after you've been in a minor to a moderately severe collision. If you're feeling headaches, body aches, discomfort, and dizziness that doesn't fade or recede, please make an appointment with us here at Lousiville Medical Center to address any injuries you may have immediately. We offer various chiropractic treatments that can help manage and remedy car accident injuries and the pain they cause.

Whiplash is one of the most common injuries to experience after you've been in a car accident. Some of the symptoms of whiplash include soreness and radiating neck pain. It can also restrict proper movement in your neck and back.

 

If you think you're suffering from whiplash, we will evaluate and analyze your spine to diagnose your exact injury. If whiplash is the cause of your pain, we can safely and effectively provide whiplash treatment for you using gentle, non-invasive methods.

Chiropractic Care for Back Pain

 

Chiropractic back pain treatments usually consist of spinal manipulation and readjustment, paired with exercise, physical therapy, and self-care plans tailored to your specific needs. Whether you have pain in your lumbar (lower) spine, upper spine, or neck, we can effectively treat all of those conditions without resorting to incredibly invasive and painful methods like surgery. If you suffer from back pain, it's essential to visit us here at Louisville Medical Center. We'll get to the bottom of the exact cause of your pain and formulate a specialized, custom treatment plan to fix it. You'll be feeling better in no time.4

Chiropractic Care for Joint Pain

The theory behind chiropractic care is reaping the benefits from aligning the bones in your spin, which positively impacts the condition of your muscles and joints, and other body systems. If you experience chronic joint pain, it most likely interferes with your ability to live your life normally. We can readjust your joints, relieve tension, and improve your range of motion to help eliminate your chronic joint pain.5

Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain

Receiving chiropractic treatment for neck pain is an all-natural method to effectively manage and solve your pain levels. If you suffer from a stiff, sore, and tender neck and can't use your full range of motion, then a chiropractor could relieve your pain. Scheduling routine care provides a gentle way to manage spine and neck misalignments that can cause radiating, debilitating pain in your neck.6

Louisville Medical Center is the leading choice for chiropractic pain management treatments in Colorado due to the compassionate level of care and dedication we give to every one of our patients. Pain has a distinctive way of taking the enjoyment out of everyday life and the things you love to do. When you suffer from chronic pain, relief is often the only thing on your mind. It can cause you to neglect your everyday obligations, and usually, the quality of your work suffers, too.

Our trained, licensed, and certified chiropractors offer customized treatment plans for every customer that needs pain management. Unfortunately, primary care doctors are sometimes too quick to prescribe addicting medications as the first and only solution for chronic pain management. Our office offers an alternative: non-addicting, minimally invasive, gentle yet effective chiropractic treatments like stretching, massaging, spine realignment, and flexibility therapy. These are the best all-natural methods for managing your pain.

When you've been in an accident, your vehicle isn't the only thing that can get seriously damaged. Your body goes through a severe impact when you've been in an auto accident and sometimes requires some adjustment to get back into good condition and proper form. Even with no injuries, you will likely feel sore for a few weeks.

Whiplash is one of the most common injuries occurring after a car accident. Whiplash is an injury to the neck muscles from the impact of rapid forward and back motion that occurs during a car accident. Suffering from whiplash can cause a lot of disruption to your everyday life. When you can't turn your head without causing pain, it becomes a struggle to drive, eat, get dressed, work, bathe, and the list goes on. Suffering from debilitating pain or whiplash after a car accident is something that you should address immediately. Our expert chiropractors here at Lousiville Medical Center have been proudly serving Louisville and Colorado's surrounding areas for years with gentle, effective, and all-natural pain management and treatments for those who have been in a car collision.
