Personal injuries occur when an individual experiences bodily harm from an accident or mishap, such as an automobile, boat, or airplane accident, pedestrian and bike collisions, construction accidents, medical malpractice, or OSHA violations. Personal injuries can cause lasting injuries and severe, chronic pain, which can be debilitating to one’s ability to work and quality of life. While medical doctors have an important role in treating some injuries, chiropractic care is an excellent noninvasive healing modality that can address long-term chronic issues that affect the musculoskeletal system, such as spinal misalignment and injury, back and neck pain, knee and hip pain, whiplash, nerve compression, and headaches. Many individuals who seek chiropractic care can minimize or avoid the use of prescription pain medications, which can be addictive over time.
