Personal injuries have a variety of causes. Sometimes they’re the result of falling on the job, other times they’re the result of an automobile accident or collision while playing sports. No matter the cause of your injury, if your symptoms persist for more than a few days or get progressively worse, it’s important to seek professional medical help.
Chiropractic care provides an excellent alternative to traditional medicine, in that it takes a holistic, integrative approach to care. Instead of trying to mask your symptoms, chiropractic care works to pinpoint the source of your injury and improve your health as a whole.
Many common sports injuries involve strains, sprains, and damage to your muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Your joints, vertebrae, and bones are also susceptible to wear-and-tear.
Before developing a treatment plan, your Woudsma Chiropractic Associates provider performs an exam of the injured area. Your provider develops a plan that helps you get back on the court or playing field without medication or surgical intervention. This may include spinal manipulation, activator treatment, flexion distraction, or exercise therapy.
The team at Woudsma Chiropractic Associates specializes in workplace injuries. If you or a loved one suffer an injury on the job, it’s essential that you clearly understand the severity and nature of your injury. Following an exam and consultation, the team develops a treatment plan and signs any necessary workers’ compensation forms for your employer.

If adjustments don’t provide adequate relief, your chiropractor may recommend special braces, electro-stimulation, or Biofreeze™ pain reliever.
