If you’ve suffered sports injuries or auto accidents, then you may be facing a need for physical therapy over the coming weeks, months, or years. Your physician will likely be able to help you understand your different options and walk you through an exercise regimen to help you regain mobility. Those are all good ideas, but it’s also worth thinking about adding in complimentary alternative health care options to get the most from your rehab. One of the best examples of this is chiropractic care.
Adding chiropractic care during your rehab period can be greatly beneficial in a number of ways. The most beneficial is that chiropractic care will help reduce pressure on nerves and vessels as well as gradually work to get your spine back into proper positioning. Auto accidents and sports injuries are usually impact based, and they’ll often do damage to the overall structure of your spine. Disc problems and spinal curves could occur, and you’ll need to alleviate them as well as working through your physical therapy. Chiropractic care can help with this, and if you’re serious about recovery then adding in massage and acupuncture to help relieve tense, stressed muscles can also lower your pain and help you on the road to recovery. In other words, considering an integrative health approach to your rehab is a good idea.
