Identifying the cause for your personal injury pain is the first step towards successful treatment. For example, if you suffer from back pain, this pain may be due to a herniated or slipped disc compressing nearby nerves. For other patients, their back pain may be caused by pulled muscle. Our chiropractor will perform a diagnostic evaluation to determine the precise cause of your pain.

If a spinal misalignment is a root cause for your personal injury pain, chiropractic adjustments are an effective technique for managing this pain. Our Oakland chiropractor Dr. Rosselle has been providing spinal adjustments for over 15 years. Proper alignment relieves pressure on nerves, alleviating lumbar or cervical compression that causes pain. Chiropractic care is effective because it addresses the root cause of personal injury pain.

In addition to chiropractic adjustments, many personal injury patients benefit from complementary therapies such as physiotherapy exercises or massage therapy. Physiotherapy exercises are important for minimizing inflammation and swelling after an injury. Internal inflammation can exacerbate pain and increase the risk for scar tissue formation. Once scar tissue forms, muscles suffer from restricted mobility, which can further aggravate pain. Physiotherapy exercises support the body’s internal healing process without aggravating the underlying injury or causing additional pain. These exercises are a safe way to build coordination, strength, flexibility and balance after a personal injury. Many of these exercises can even be performed from the comfort of your home.
