We all like to think we won't get injured. But the statistics tell us that more of us will than we think. According to the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI), falls are the leading cause of emergency room visits, with over 8 million occurring each year. Sprained and broken ankles, knee, back, and other spinal injuries are very common in a slip or fall. And, of course, there are many other causes of personal injury. Among the leading are automobile accidents. Regardless of the cause, if you have an accident and suffer a personal injury, what is the best way to proceed? Where should you go to seek treatment? At City Chiropractic, serving the Portland, Oregon, area for more than 30 years, we have principles that we know to be effective. They involve utilizing the natural resources of your body to heal.
Your Chiropractor: The Natural Way
As chiropractors, we believe in the natural strength and resilience of the human body. That means we seek the least invasive, most natural ways to heal your body, to help it regain its natural balance of good health. While surgery may be necessary in some cases, there are many effective techniques for working with personal injury accident victims that do not require it.
We utilize a wide range of techniques for working with injuries of all types. Chiropractic adjustments allow us to target the root causes of all types of pain. Chiropractic manipulation permits restoration of normal motion, faster healing, and increased circulation with reduced inflammation. Treating the body as a complete system means we look at the entire spectrum of possible paths to improvement. This includes nutritional counseling, corrective exercises to strengthen and correct problems caused by your injury, general lifestyle advice, and all the methods of chiropractic practice used to relieve pain and improve your daily life. Massage therapy can reduce swelling, relieve pain and spasms, and improve blood circulation, all while helping you recover your normal range of motion. Our spinal and posture screenings may catch specific injury-related changes or simply reveal ways to improve your posture and general wellbeing.
It only makes sense to attempt healing in the most natural and least invasive ways. Treating the body as a complete system, in which all parts work together, your chiropractor ensures the most rapid and effective healing. So if you're a victim of a slip and fall, or any other type of injury, or would just like to improve your health and general wellbeing, contact us today at City Chiropractic of Portland, Oregon, for assessment and treatment!
