Chiropractic care for those injured at work

Injured at Work in Charlotte NCChiropractic care for worker’s compensation injuries

We often get questions regarding chiropractic care for those injured at work. Chiropractic care is covered under Workers’ Compensation Law in North Carolina, and it would be misleading for an insurance company or its representatives to state or imply otherwise. If you are a workers’ compensation patient and you are unhappy with the level of care and treatment you are receiving from your current health care provider, you have the right to make a change to an alternative health care provider. You owe it to yourself and your family to find the best care possible so that you can get back to work safely and in optimal health.

Defining workers comp injuries when injured at work

The best chiropractic care in Charlotte is natural and pain free treatment that has been proven to avoid the common delays and poor results that can prevent you from returning to work and getting things back to normal when injured at work. Chiropractic treatment will provide you with the high quality care, treatment and guidance that can get you well again. Workers compensation actions are qualified as any accident on the job that produces injury such as:

  • a slip and fall accident
  • a fall from a ladder or platform
  • injuries that were incurred while lifting
  • trip hazards
  • needle sticks
  • injuries while driving or traveling is a part of your work duties

Types of workers comp injuries

Workers comp injuries may include:

  • broken bones
  • Strains and sprains
  • Whiplash
  • lower back pain
  • headaches and migraines

Injuries that affect the soft tissues of the body like the muscles, tendons, spinal column discs, and nerves can often cause severe lack of mobility; along with neck pain and headache pain. In many cases, a spinal adjustment can free trapped nerves and give the patient almost immediate relief from pain and mobility issues. For many patients, serious inflammation of the muscles and soft tissues will cause pain and mobility issues for workers compensation patients. Chiropractic care often utilizes natural therapies such as spinal adjustments, massage therapy, and rehabilitative exercises. Massage therapy could possibly be used in conjunction with a spinal adjustment to help patients relax and to loosen stiff muscles. Massage therapy is also effective in reducing inflammation, breaking up painful large scar tissue within the muscles, and lowering pain level.

Charlotte chiropractic care versus prescription pain medication

Charlotte Chiropractic in Charlotte, NCWhat is right for you?

If you are ever injured, you may need to decide between Charlotte chiropractic care and reliance upon prescription pain medications. There is always room for discussion regarding the dangers of prescription pain medications, but our goal here is to give you an idea of the reality of depending largely on painkillers for pain management. There can be no argument that prescription medications are more commonplace than ever before. The regular use of these drugs has led to the overmedication of Americans who suffer with chronic or acute pain. A recent study by the Mayo Clinic reveals that nearly 70 percent of Americans are on at least one prescription drug, and among the most commonly prescribed drugs are painkillers and antidepressants. The study also found a direct correlation between regular use opioids and depression. In fact, once the cycle begins it can be incredibly difficult to break.

The reality of opioid use

Beyond the dangerous side effects, daily or periodic use of prescription painkillers will severely hamper your lifestyle and ability to perform daily activities. Every warning on painkiller bottle s states that you should not drive or operate machinery when taking the medication. This means that many people cannot work, and certainly cannot drive themselves to work when using prescription painkillers. Other household duties such as cooking or cleaning can become dangerous or hazardous activities. Making it through the day without falling asleep several times is fairly common. The increasing use of prescription narcotics is leading to higher rates of overdose and increased reports of depression and anxiety. While your pain may initially be relieved, over time, higher doses will be required to remain effective, and side effects with life-altering consequences may be the end result.

Chiropractic care for pain management

Because chiropractic care addresses the underlying causes of pain, it has been shown to offer dramatic and longer lasting pain relief without the side effects of prescription drugs. The best chiropractors in Charlotte will perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine the cause of your pain, and will make pain relief their first priority. They will use a number of treatment modalities that are pain free and that do not require the use of prescription medications.

Chiropractic care for injured knees

Chiropractor treating patient been injuredSturdy yet injury prone

Few things can reduce your ability to perform daily tasks like an injured knee. Our knees are one of the most complex and sturdy joints in the body and it is also one of the joint most prone to injury. Sometimes the injury is a result of sports activity or work related activity, and sometimes knee injuries are related to years of wear and tear or aging. Regardless of the reason for your injury, chiropractic care can be remarkably effective in getting you back to work or normal activities.

Consider the most common causes of knee pain or injury:

Arthritis Arthritis is one of the most common reasons for knee pain, causing loss of movement in the joint and almost always affecting supporting soft tissues such as muscles, tendons and ligaments. Osteoarthritis of the knee joint is the result of gradual degradation of the cartilage in the joint. If your knee joint is often swollen and painful, this is usually a sign that the joint is inflamed; a sign of rheumatoid arthritis. Other factors that contribute to knee pain and arthritis can be obesity or excessive weight, repetitive movement from sports activity, and heavy strain from weightlifting or workplace activity. Meniscus pain or injury Activity that demands quick twisting or rotation of the upper leg while bearing weight can tear the meniscus. If you’ve torn your meniscus, you may experience the following signs and symptoms in your knee:

  • A popping sensation.
  • Swelling or stiffness.
  • Pain, especially when twisting or rotating your knee.
  • Difficulty straightening your knee fully.

Ligament Injuries Two of the major ligaments in the knee joint are the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL). When they are sprained or torn, you will experience a great deal of pain. These ligaments can become stretched or torn from a sudden or direct impact, such as in an auto accident or slip and fall. Injuries that are related to a blow to the outer side of the knee usually result in a sprain or tear of the medial collateral ligament (MCL) on the inner side of the knee. These types of injury are often accompanied by a popping sound, followed by a buckling of the knee joint. Tendon Injuries Tendon injuries in the knee can be caused by anything from tendonitis to a ruptured or torn tendon. Overuse can cause the tendon to stretch like a rubber band, later becoming inflamed.

Chiropractic treatment for knee injuries

Do not accept knee pain as a natural part of getting older. Pain is always an indicator that something is wrong. If knee pain is limiting your daily or sporting activities, it is time to visit one of the top chiropractors in the Charlotte area. If you have been given painkillers or anti-inflammatory medication but have seen no long-term improvement, your chiropractor can offer natural treatments without hazardous medications or painful procedures. We also recommend a visit with a chiropractic doctor if you have been told that you have arthritis and there is nothing that can be done.

Are you hurt from a slip and fall?

Dr. R. Scott Saario of  ChiroCarolina®Ignoring when you are injured

Are you hurt from a slip and fall? Most people are too quick to dismiss their pain as reasonable soreness, but even if you do not feel pain, it is important that you visit one of the top chiropractors in Charlotte to make sure that you are not injured. Sometimes people hop right up as a way of ignoring the initial embarrassment, denying or pretending that they are not injured. Sometimes a fall leaves you disoriented and in shock, so that you may not feel any pain, not letting you know how severely you were hurt. The best chiropractors in Charlotte can diagnose and treat slip and fall injuries without painful treatments or the use of harmful medications. If you have suffered a fall, or you have discovered an injury that you believe is related to an earlier accident, chiropractic care can help you get you back to your normal activity. Consider the following tips that can help keep you upright when facing slippery surfaces:

  1. Wear slip resistant shoes – Shoes that lack the appropriate tread for walking on slippery surfaces is the most common reason that people slip and fall. Anti-slip shoes or boots are a good investment to protect your health if you work or travel on wet or slippery surfaces.
  1. Plan ahead and walk deliberately – Just as you must slow down when driving conditions are hazardous, the same applies to walking. When you are on wet floors or slippery surfaces, take smaller and deliberate steps. Focus on keeping your feet underneath your body to provide you with a balanced center of gravity.
  1. Break your fall – In the moment that you feel yourself falling, if at all possible, try your best to fall on your side. Resist the natural tendency to break your fall with your arms because that is the leading reason for broken arms or wrists when people fall. Falling on your side distributes force more evenly, and protects the smaller bones in your hands and wrists.

Charlotte chiropractic care for slip and fall injuries

Many are reluctant to consider chiropractic care for what they consider to be minor slip and fall injuries, but in actuality, chiropractic treatment is a natural and gentle process that can diagnose and heal your body after you have been injured. The top Charlotte chiropractors at ChiroCarolina® will use the best rehabilitative therapies to help you return to your pre-injury status.

Charlotte chiropractic care does wonders for your well-being

Charlotte Chiropractic Dr. Ferzaan A. Ali of ChiroCarlina®Chiropractic care in Charlotte

Increasing numbers of patients are discovering the benefits of Charlotte chiropractic care; however, there are many people who still have lots of questions. Nearly everyone knows someone at work or has a friend who swears by chiropractic care. However, there is always some consternation on the behalf of newcomers because of all the misperceptions that are held by the general public. It is perfectly normal to be anxious about any type of healthcare procedures. Pain is everyone’s main concern, and most people should be aware that pain relief is the first priority for chiropractic care; while chiropractic doctors are determined to provide natural and pain free treatments without the use of painkillers or invasive procedures.

Pain management

Pain is an important mechanism to help us take care of our bodies. Pain lets us know that something is wrong, but we typically ignore the pain until something is severely affecting us. For those that are involved in athletics or who have physically demanding jobs, the assumption is that pain is to be tolerated and endured. Chiropractic care is intended to address our pain issues early on. Chiropractic care is not just about responding to pain. Ideally, the top chiropractors in Charlotte strive to keep you in top shape, rather than responding to various symptoms. It is their philosophy to address the root cause of your pain, treat it, and keep you at your healthiest.

Relaxation

Stress relief is one of the lesser-known benefits of chiropractic care. We live in a world that demands that we multi-task to be productive. We deal with relatively new forms of stress such as traffic jams, demanding schedules, long distance travel, noise pollution, and social interaction. When you are constantly under stress, your muscular and skeletal systems are tense and misaligned. Chiropractic care is intended to get your body back in balance so that you will be able to manage your stress and improve your mood.

Improve your posture

At some point we are all guilty of slumping in our desk chair, while sitting on the couch, or at the computer keyboard. Posture has a lot more to do with your spinal alignment and the health of your supporting muscles in your back and neck. Posture has a huge impact on how your body functions. The best Chiropractic doctors work diligently to pinpoint where your spine is not moving properly and address your stance to help you work toward standing straighter.

The best Charlotte chiropractor tips to reduce stress

Best Charlotte Chiropractor Dr.Henry Rice of ChiroCarolina®Are you sick of stress… or sick because of stress?

Many patients are concerned about the effects of stress in their life, and would like to know the best Charlotte chiropractor tips to avoid problems related to today’s stressful lifestyle. Just a minimal amount of research can show you that adopting a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and eliminating use of tobacco products are significant factors in reducing your risk for stress related illness; but lifestyle coaching is often required to manage and cope with stress itself.

Stress and your body

Research has shown that stress induces physiological responses in our bodies that that are commonly associated with heart disease. When we are stressed, our body releases hormones that increase blood pressure and heart rate. If our lifestyle is continually stressful, over a period of time, we can develop secondary diseases such as chronic hypertension or arterial diseases. We are even more susceptible to health problems when we use unhealthy behaviors such as smoking or increased alcohol consumption as a way of dealing with our stress. Stress can also affect our sleep patterns when we worry about past or future stressful situations. A lack of sleep opens us up to numerous other health issues such as excess weight, chronic fatigue, and joint pain.

Just say no

Much of our stress is technology driven. Ten or fifteen years ago, business transactions transpired over a few days or weeks. In today’s environment, a proposal can be made and emailed in just a few minutes, with expectations of a response in less than an hour; or the client may move on to a competitor. Even volunteer and charity projects can be stressful because we are expected to get so much done in such a short period of time. Stress can be reduced by learning to say “no” to extra responsibilities when you may already have an overbooked calendar. Learning to manage stress effectively is not as hard as it sounds, consider the following tips:

  • Take a deep breath and a short time out

Whenever you experience a stressful situation, take a few minutes to stop and gather yourself. Focus on your breathing, and imagine yourself to be blowing the stress away from your body and out of your mind.

  • Take short breaks to move around

Even minimal amounts of exercise will release endorphins, a hormone that can help you feel better. Physical activity also helps you release muscle tension. Removing yourself from a stressful situation by taking a walk is a great way to get your mind to refocus. You will discover that when you return, you are in a better frame of mind to handle the situation.

  • Schedule some time for yourself and for fun

You don’t need to go to Disney World; you can sit quietly, read a book, or anything that will take your mind off your perpetual to-do list. Spend time with friends and family; you may even want them to be your sounding board to talk through difficult situations, or just to relax and laugh.

  • Talk to your Charlotte chiropractor

The best chiropractors in Charlotte understand the negative effects that stress can have on the body. Constant muscle tension and contraction, which is an immediate result of stress, can lead to misalignment of the spine. A Chiropractic doctor can detect and correct these misalignments. This will allow your body to heal itself more rapidly and function more optimally.

Do not guess about the serious effects of stress on your body and your health. The doctors at ChiroCarolina® are experts at the diagnosis and treatment of stress related health problems. ChiroCarolina® provides numerous treatment modalities to aid in the reduction of stress, such as Gentle spinal adjustments, dietary counseling, massage therapy, and lifestyle coaching.

Dispelling the myths for those who have been in an accident

Treating patient been in an AccidentConvincing the injured

A significant number of people who have been in an accident actually need to be convinced that they are injured. It seems that all we ever hear about are the people who fake injuries for the sake of financial gain. The other side of the coin is that there are many people who have injuries and will refuse care because they do not want to be viewed as one who exaggerates or makes up injuries for financial compensation.

Time constraints on minor injuries

A common myth regarding car accident injuries is that sprain or strain type injuries and should be healed or resolved within 6-12 weeks. Every person is different. We often hear about professional athletes being listed as “out” for 6 to 12 weeks for ankle injuries or shoulder sprains. What the average person does not consider is that professional athletes get intensive treatments around the clock. Additionally, it is totally unreasonable for a person in their fifties to heal at the same rate as a trained athlete. However, many in the public not only believe this, they often repeat it to friends, family members, and coworkers; perpetuating the myth. The top chiropractors in Charlotte will tell you that you will experience immediate pain relief and successful healing with individualized treatment that is pain free and natural, but treatment plan and healing will vary from patient to patient. It is important to remember that foregoing treatment can allow simple injuries to develop into a worse condition.

If the vehicle is not damaged, you cannot be seriously injured

This myth is built upon the false premise that car accident injuries are serious in proportion to the amount of damage to a car. A lot of people take that to mean that if the car has only minor damage, the accident victims cannot be seriously injured. With crash test improvements in car design, low impact collisions are going to reveal little damage. Numerous studies have been performed and none have been able to make a direct correlation linking degree of car damage to severity of injury.

If you do not feel pain, you have not been injured

Another errant myth is that if you don’t feel pain within 72 hours after the accident, you are not really injured. The reality is that a significant number of people do not feel pain after a car accident within the first 72 hours. In fact, sometimes it can take weeks or even months before you start feeling all of your symptoms. There are a number of reasons for this. First, we can suffer from a mild form of shock that is designed to protect us from severe pain in traumatic situations. Secondly, when we are injured, inflammation will build up over time, and the pain will become evident. Additionally, many people may “take it easy” for a week or two after an accident. When they return to normal activity, they eventually realize that they experience a great deal of pain with normal activities.

Chiropractic treatment when you have been injured at work

Chiropractor treating patient injured at Work When you are injured on the job

When you are injured at work, it is important to get treatment from one of the top chiropractic doctors in Charlotte. Regardless of how you are injured, if your injuries are not treated properly, you can seriously delay your recovery or make the damage worse. Immediate action, combined with a thorough examination will be the fastest way back to good health and maximum productivity at work.

Neck trauma

Injuring your neck on the job can be as frustrating as it is painful. Damage to the cervical spine or the soft tissues in your neck will mean limited range of motion and acute or chronic pain. The bones, muscles, ligaments, and discs in your neck are vitally important. Patients are surprised to discover that even the most minor tasks are affected by pain or injury in the neck area. This applies to every situation in which the neck is injured whether you are hurt at home, during athletic competition, or in a car accident.

Chiropractic hands for neck trauma

The top chiropractors in Charlotte primarily use their hands to treat the muscle, joint, and nerve pain that is characteristic of neck injuries. Their hands are highly skilled and the doctors are specially trained to promote healing by gentle adjustment of the cervical spine and joints. Chiropractic adjustments are intended to loosen up joints that move poorly or painfully as a result of tissue damage or scarring that is related to trauma or repetitive stress. Chiropractic care is reported to be one of the most effective methods for successful treatment of whiplash. Chiropractic neck adjustments are commonly called cervical manipulation, which loosens up the joints of the cervical vertebrae in the neck. The end result is reduction or relief of pain caused by pinched nerves and muscle spasms.

Finding the best practitioner

The best chiropractors in Charlotte use a number of methods to diagnose and to treat patients. Treatment plans are individualized and may include rehabilitative exercises to be performed at home, along with lifestyle coaching and suggestions for a healthier lifestyle. Chiropractors do not prescribe pain medication as part of their treatment. Treatments focus on immediate relief of pain and helping the spine to heal the body naturally and pain free.

Thermo-therapy for those who are injured

A patient injured in an accidentAre you injured?

Whenever you are injured, one of the most common questions is whether ice or heat is better for treatment of strains and sprains. Ice and heat therapy are crucial therapies when it comes pain management and treatment of injuries in the soft tissues, muscles, and joints. Many people are not sure about which is the proper therapy. In addition, patients want to know how long the ice or heat treatments should last. Proper use can vary depending on if the injuries are classified as either acute injuries or chronic injuries.

Heat treatment for chronic injuries

Chronic injury means that the pain and symptoms will last for months or even years. Arthritis in its numerous forms is an example of chronic injury. Applying heat

  • encourages the circulation of blood to the joint
  • helps the body to sooth and heal supporting soft tissues
  • helps to relax and loosen muscles

Heat treatments are also ideal for chronic conditions that result in soreness and pain from overuse. Heat is especially helpful when used before participating in activities. Resist the use of heat therapy immediately after activity, and do not use heat immediately after suffering an injury. Heat therapy should be avoided for the first 48 hours after an injury. Heating is accomplished by using an electrical heating pad, or a warm, moist towel. It is crucial that you use only moderate heat. You only need to use heat that is 10 degrees above normal body temperature. Do not ever leave heating pads or towels on for extended periods of time. Never apply heat therapy and go to sleep. Contact your Charlotte chiropractor to determine proper use of heat or ice.

Ice treatment for acute injuries

Acute injury is trauma that is severe enough to cause initial swelling and severe pain to the joint or body part. Swelling is dangerous because it can restrict circulation of blood to the joint. During the first 48 hours after an injury, swelling is a natural part of the healing process. Ice packs or an ice bath are extremely effective for minimizing and controlling swelling around the injury. Decreasing swelling also helps to control the pain. Ice packs are ideal for injuries to the ankle, shoulder, and knees. Ice treatments may help control inflammation for chronic injuries; however, you should refrain from applying ice to a chronic injury just before activity. Be careful that you do not apply ice for more than twenty minutes at a time, as a precaution against freezing skin or tissues.
