Injuries are a hassle, no matter how you look at them. They're painful, and they make people unable to participate in their lives as normal until they heal. That's why it's important to rehabilitate optimally so as to decrease healing time and any potential complications. At the Albany Chiropractic Clinic of Albany, OR, we offer our patients many resources to help them get back to normal as soon as possible. Dr. Philip Buchovecky, our resident chiropractor, is an expert in injury rehab.
Types of Injuries
Injuries come in all shapes and sizes, meaning any body part can be injured. Some injuries come from a direct force outside of the body. Others are the result of the body slowly and repetitively being pushed outside its limits. We frequently see patients come in with sports injuries, auto accident injuries, and work injuries.
Injury Rehab Options
The best treatment depends on the specific injury. Albany Chiropractic Clinic of Albany, OR, offers several great options for injury rehab. Our expert staff and quality equipment deliver the best possible results for patients. Treatments we offer include:
- Chiropractic Adjustments: A chiropractor adjusts the position of the joints relative to each other to improve the anatomical position
- Electrotherapy: a process where electrical current stimulates the body to release tension and promote healing
- Chiropractic Extremity Manipulation: similar to chiropractic adjustments, except they are performed on the limbs
- Rehabilitative Exercise: exercises prescribed to improve musculoskeletal function
Most injuries can be prevented by establishing some simple, positive habits. Those at higher risk of injury, such as athletes and the disabled, should be even more proactive. A healthy diet combined with consistent, quality exercise will go a long way toward fortifying the body against injury. Everyone should warm up, cool down, and stretch for the best results in exercise. It's also important not to overtrain since suddenly overloading the muscles makes them weaker and therefore more prone to injury.
