What to Do if You Have Been Injured
At Suncoast Integrative Healthcare, we work with you to create a lifestyle that does not rely on potentially harmful drugs for pain management and offers proactive strategies for our patients to follow. If you find that you have been injured, whether in a car accident, through a workplace incident, playing sports, or just in daily life, follow these tips to minimize the impact of the injury:
- Inflammation Reduction - take steps to reduce the inflammation and minimize the potential for further injury; we find that the RICE protocol is effective and easy to remember. Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation can help to reduce swelling and inflammation associated with any physical injury immediately.
- Repair - visit our healthcare clinic in St Petersburg for diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing injury management. Injuries, no matter the severity, that go untreated, can linger and worsen to the point where mild discomfort turns into pain.
- Strengthen - a proactive approach that includes stretching and strengthening exercises can reduce the likelihood of re-injury and help you prevent a similar injury in the future.
Chiropractors are a key part of injury treatment and allow patients to overcome their pain in a non-invasive and drug-free environment. If you have been recently injured, we will welcome the opportunity to work with you to formulate a comprehensive treatment plan.
