Work and Personal Injury Treatment in Murrells Inlet

Chiropractic medicine is a natural and drug-free type of treatment that has proven to be effective for much more than back and neck pain. This relatively modern practice utilizes a variety of techniques including manual adjustments, spinal decompression, and cold laser therapy. Besides treating conditions like sciatica, chronic pain, and headaches, Grand Strand Health and Wellness also provides personal injury treatment as well as work injury treatment.

Treating Personal Injuries

Accidents happen, and oftentimes when they do, it can result in getting injured. Whether you were in a car accident, you slipped and fell, or you were injured in another way, the pain and damage to your body can interfere with your daily activities. If they are serious enough, some injuries can also cause you to lose mobility and it can take weeks, even months to fully recover.

Many chiropractors, including Dr. Chris Garner at Grand Strand Health and Wellness, can effectively treat a variety of personal injuries. Chiropractic care provides a natural and nonsurgical approach to treating personal injuries. Certain chiropractic treatments and techniques can also improve mobility, speed up recovery times, and prevent your injury from getting worse.

Some of the most common types of treatment that chiropractors use include manual adjustments, trigger point therapy, and recommending exercises that can increase your range of motion and help you to regain your strength.

Treating Work Related Accidents & Injuries

Even when employers do all that they can to provide a safe work environment, accidents on the job still happen. One of the most common types of work related injuries involves performing repetitive motions. Some examples of repetitive motion injuries include:
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Muscle strains
  • Tendinitis
  • Bursitis
Other common types of work related injuries include accidentally walking into objects, getting hurt by falling objects, tripping and slipping, and falling from heights. Overexertion is also another work related injury that is often caused by employees having to exert themselves in order to pull, push, or lift something. Some of the most common ailments that result in getting injured at work include back pain, neck pain, sprains and strains, herniated discs, and mis-alignment of the spine.
One of the worst things about getting injured at work is that it can prevent you from going back to work. Once you do return to your job, you may face limitations from your injury. Because chiropractic care promotes healing and speeds up recovery times, you can return to work much sooner than you could without treatment. Many people choose to take prescription drugs to mask the pain so that they can do their job. When it comes to work injury treatment, chiropractic care is a drug-free, non-invasive option that involves getting to the root cause of the pain.
