What’s the Difference Between Structural Chiropractic Care and Conventional Chiropractic Care?


Most Chiropractors you’ll find on your typical Google search are conventional chiropractors. They focus on reducing pain, inflammation, muscle spasms and increasing range of motion in joints.

They manage these health concerns with the use of general manipulations of the neck and spine. This is what most chiropractors offer in the way of care, and we believe that most of them do a great job at it.

As a Specific Structural Corrective Chiropractor, Dr. Gessert is dedicated to diagnosing and correcting the underlying cause of your condition.

Be Mindful of Poor Posture


Rounded shoulders or a hunched stance may seem like they’re set in stone by the time we
reach a certain age, but even if your posture has been a problem for years, it’s possible to make
improvements!

There are a few things you can do at home or at the office to make sure you’re sitting upright.

The key is making tine to strengthen muscles in your upper back, core, and chest.

Some exercises that will help improve core strength include:

  • Planks (hold a push-up position while propped up on your elbows, or high plank – holding the position on your hands)
  • Sit-ups and crunches to tighten your abdominal muscles

Pain Relief After a Car Accident


If you’re suffering from an auto accident, you might be surprised to learn that chiropractic care can provide a drug-free way to relieve your pain. For instance, if you have back pain or neck pain after being involved in a car accident, this could mean you have a spinal or whiplash injury.

According to the Insurance Research Council, “nearly one third of all claimants injured in motor vehicle accidents (MVAs) seek treatment from doctors of chiropractic.” According to a 2012 study on the Epidemiology of Whiplash, “manual therapy (i.e., cervical mobilization and or manipulation), together with exercise appear to be the most effective noninvasive treatments for patients with acute whiplash related neck pain.” 

The reason so many people choose to use chiropractic during their recovery process is because of its unique advantages in treating soft tissue injuries such ligament sprains and muscle strains of the spine.

Chiropractic Care Helps with Post-Car Accident Injuries


Did you know the average driver will be in a car crash once every 18 years?
 

Did you also know that even a minor fender bender can result in an injury, which can cause problems?
 

If you have neck pain or back pain after being involved in a car accident, you could have a spinal injury or whiplash. If you don’t get the right type of care, those injuries could have serious, negative impacts on your health.
 

Specific structural chiropractic care doesn’t just treat the symptoms of your pain, but the underlying injury or injuries causing you pain. Painkillers offer immediate relief, but not long-term pain relief, which could last years if you don’t treat your car accident-related injuries properly.
 

According to the Insurance Research Council, “nearly one third of all claimants injured in motor vehicle accidents (MVAs) seek treatment from doctors of chiropractic.”

Chiropractic Care Can Speed Ligament Healing


Most minor ligament sprains will heal on their own if they’re taken care of properly. In the case of a ruptured or torn ligament, surgery may be required to fix the damage along with physical therapy to regain strength and range of motion.

If a ligament injury is minor, there are a few things you can do on your own to ensure proper healing. Read the full article on our website to learn more!

If you’ve recently had a ligament injury or have decreased mobility and chronic pain due to an older injury, chiropractic care can help.

Pivotal Chiropractic is a great option for treating an injury, especially during the COVID-19 era when it’s harder to see our regular doctors or go to urgent care for help. Your chiropractor can work in collaboration with your team of doctors to make sure your injury heals properly.

For a free consultation to get more information, contact Dr. Gessert today!

How do Ligament Injuries Heal?


What you should do after the injury? More importantly, how do you know if you have a ligament injury?

Did you tear a ligament or is it just a pulled muscle?

A trained chiropractor or medical provider can assess if an injury resulted in a pulled muscle, or sprain or tear of a ligament. This is determined through a comprehensive evaluation of the injured area. Generally, when a ligament is damaged, you will notice pain, swelling, and sometimes bruising. If the ligament is torn or ruptured, in addition to extreme pain, it may feel loose or weak, like the joint will give out. Depending on the severity of the injury, the proper course of treatment is essential to ensuring adequate healing.
