What to Do if You Have Been Injured
At St. Petersburg Chiropractic Injury and Rehab 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 work-place incident, playing sports, or just in daily life, follow these tips in order 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 one that is effective and easy to remember. Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation can help to immediately reduce swelling and inflammation associated with any physical injury.
- Repair - visit us at St. Petersburg Chiropractic Injury and Rehab 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 reinjury and can also help you to prevent a similar injury in the future.
Your St. Petersburg chiropractor is a key part of injury treatment and allows patients to overcome their pain without in a non-invasive and drug-free environment. If you have been recently injured, we would welcome the opportunity to work with you to formulate a comprehensive treatment plan.
