Everyone will experience some type of personal injury during their lifetime. These can include sprains, whiplash, and back pain. If you are in Pittsburgh, Greenfield, or Lawrenceville, our team at Cutitta Chiropractic can help.
Several personal injuries can cause back pain. These include sciatica, which can be related to low back pain, herniated discs, and pulled muscles in the back. Back pain can occur due to poor posture, moving the wrong way, or lifting heavy objects.
Sprains and strains are the most common types of injuries. They can affect the ligaments, muscles, or tendons. They cause swelling and pain, particularly with movement or walking. They can occur due to an auto accident, falls, repetitive movement, or lifting an object that is too heavy.
Whiplash occurs when the neck experiences a sharp back-and-forth movement. Auto accidents are the most common cause, but anything that causes a forceful movement can result in whiplash. The symptoms include neck pain, stiffness, and numbness.
Ergonomic issues are often associated with work, but they can also occur at home. They often cause pain, stiffness, and can affect your range of motion. Low back pain is the most common ergonomic injury. Others include carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, and knee injuries.
Neck pain can be caused by poor posture or repetitive movements. It's particularly common if you spend your days at a desk or computer. Stiffness and soreness are common symptoms of neck pain.
The treatment your chiropractor will recommend depends on your specific injury. We will begin with a physical exam and a conversation about your health, symptoms, and lifestyle. Common treatments include chiropractic adjustment, corrective exercises, the Graston technique, and massage therapy.
