Treatment for Personal Injuries in Buffalo
Common Types of Personal Injuries
Car accidents, personal injury, and work-related injuries are broad terms that refer to medical conditions or injuries that occur in different environments. According to the National Safety Council, a worker is injured on the job every seven seconds in the U.S. This means that there are 540 work injuries per hour and 7 million work injuries per year. At Buffalo Chiropractic + Physical Therapy, PLLC, our team has the capabilities to help patients find healing and recovery from these types of injuries.
Some of the most common personal injuries we treat include:
Auto injuries (car accidents)
According to the CDC, about 3 million people per year are injured in motor vehicle crashes. Here at BC + PT, we are equipped to treat many of those injuries between our combination of chiropractic and physical therapy services.
Injuries caused by falling objects
This is the most common type of work-related injury. It tends to happen when patients fall from a ladder or a lift, or when products fall from a shelf. These injuries can result in damage to the entire body depending on where the trauma impacted the patient. If the damage can be helped with chiropractic care or physical therapy, our team will work to identify the damage and treat it as quickly as possible.
Overextension may occur when a patient has been moving heavy objects. In these cases, patients often experience torn or sprained muscles, tendon and ligament damage, back injuries, herniated discs, and spasms. We will help identify the source of the pain and create an individualized treatment plan.
Repetitive motion injuries
For workers who perform repetitive motions on the job, painful issues with the neck, shoulder, arm, and wrist issues are all possibilities. The team at BC + PT treats these types of conditions and helps patients find a long-term care plan.
It is not unusual for employees who work on assembly lines or production facilities to become injured when they are operating machinery. These injuries can range in category and complexity, but when they can be treated with chiropractic care and physical therapy, our team is here to help.
Neurological disorders are a possible result of toxic chemicals and exposure to dangerous contaminants. Symptoms of neurological disorders include headaches, fatigue, lightheadedness, nerve damage, and loss of control of the limbs. If you’ve tried all the conventional routes of care, maybe it’s time to talk to our doctors.
Slip and fall injuries
When a patient slips and falls at work, it is called a “slip and fall injury.” However, some people have slip and fall injuries outside of work- in either scenario, our team at BC + PT is equipped to help with many condition associated with this type of injury, including back and neck pain.
