When you suffer an injury from a slip or fall, the full extent of the possible damage is not always immediately apparent. There may be bruising or soreness, but if the pain seems manageable, many people don’t think twice about letting the injury heal on it’s own. In some cases that approach may work out fine, but sometimes, doing nothing could lead to pain, discomfort or bigger problems in the future.
If the slip or fall caused a blunt trauma or harsh impact on the body, it’s always a good idea to get an exam from a licensed, experienced chiropractor to ensure that the bruising and soreness is merely superficial. Also, if the fall has caused a misalignment in the spine or joints, a chiropractor can help to alleviate any of the associated pain of pinched nerves or damaged spinal disks. Left untreated, these conditions can cause big problems down the line.
Our chiropractor, Dr. Kurt Michaux, knows from personal experience the importance of proper health maintenance for the entire family. As a child, he suffered from various illnesses that were never fully treated in a way that brought long-lasting relief. Even if parents are healthy, achieving good a balance of health and wellness for their kids is not always easy. Having to deal with chronic illness in children can be extremely stressful for the whole family.
It wasn’t until he was a pre-teen that Dr. Michaux began investigating alternatives to Western medicine to deal with his illnesses. In discovering chiropractic care, he finally found a treatment regimen that helped bring about long-term healing.
The most beneficial aspect of chiropractic care is its focus on all-natural healing. This is what makes it an excellent source of health maintenance and inspiration for individuals as well as families. Instead of just looking at illness or injury as an incident that needs to be addressed on its own, chiropractic seeks to treat underlying issues that may make people more prone to illness and injury. In this way, chiropractic doesn’t just temporarily mask pain or treat presenting issues, it works to helps patients to create a healthier way of living and to prevent further physical ailments.
