Personal injuries relate to any type of harm that comes from being in an accident or having an unfortunate mishap. Personal injury is different from workers comp in that personal injury is something that happens outside of work. There are many causes of personal injuries.
Personal Injury causes can include:
- Traffic accidents – Auto, Truck, Motorcycle
- Slip and Fall accidents
- In home accidents
- Product defect accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Construction site accidents
- Sports injuries
- Pedestrian accidents
- Certain types of at work accidents such as carpal tunnel and repetitive strain
All of these accidents can cause soft tissue damage or put the body out of alignment. Chiropractors specialize in soft tissue injuries and in keeping the body in proper alignment. You should seek out a chiropractor as a way to reduce pain if you have sustained a personal injury. Towards the beginning of your treatment, when your pain is at its worst, you will likely see your chiropractor a few times a week. Over the course of your treatment the frequency of your visits will begin to decline until your pain and your injury improve and you no longer need to visit your chiropractor.
