Treatment For Auto, Work and Sports Injuries | St Paul MN Chiropractor

Auto Accidents

If you have been in a motor vehicle accident, don’t assume that you escaped injury. Even if you are not currently in pain, whiplash injuries need to be taken very seriously. Symptoms of a whiplash injury can take weeks or months to become noticeable.  You need a doctor who specializes in the treatment for whiplash and other auto accident injuries. Chiropractors are trained to identify injuries that may not show any immediate symptoms. Whether you are sore or not, you should get checked out immediately. Many people do not experience health problems until many months later.

Possible Symptoms From Auto Accidents:

  • Whiplash
  • Neck pain
  • Stiffness
  • Headaches
  • Lower back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Dizziness
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Blurred vision

Work Injuries

Chiropractic care continues to be the top treatment options for work related injuries. Lower back pain and repetitive stress injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome, are just two of the more common work related conditions chiropractors treat on a regular basis.

In working with hundreds of work related injuries we have found individuals are afraid to file a worker’s comp claim for fear of losing their job. It is illegal for your employer to punish you for having a work injury or filing a claim. You are entitled by law to receive adequate care to return your health.  If you are not sure if you have a work related injury, contact your Chiropractor to let them help you determine its origin.

Sports Injuries

An athlete competing at maximum health has the greatest ability to perform at their best. Athletes put physical demands on their body jumping, running, falling and tackling. These demands may present themselves as sprains, strains, chronic injuries and negatively affect their performance. Many world class and Olympic athletes, as well as professional stars and teams, have retained chiropractors to provide care.

The sports chiropractor can enhance an athlete’s recovery from injury and prevent future injury. In the competitive sports world, these athletes realize that if spinal or extremity problems exist, their performance will be compromised. The goal for each patient is to get him/her in peak performance to produce a winning result.

Professional, amateur and weekend athletes seek out Chiropractic Treatments for many reasons:

  • Recover quicker after training/games
  • Prevention of injury
  • Peak performance
  • Better balance

Pain Killing Drugs Are Not The Answer!

They merely cover up the symptoms allowing the athlete to perform making the injury more serious. Probably more than any other health profession, a Chiropractor’s approach to health closely relates to the needs of the sports participant. If you or a loved one suffer from any kind of sports related injury, please schedule an appointment today.
