Transcript

  • 1. THE ROLE OF CHIROPRACTIC IN MANAGING INJURIES Swelling From Blood Vessels
  • 2. THE ROLE OF CHIROPRACTIC IN MANAGING INJURIES STAGES OF TISSUE HEALING – STAGE I: ACTIVE SWELLING 1.Swelling occurs for 12 to 72 hours / 2.Motion is lost and pain increases Goals of Care: Minimize pain, swelling Care: 1.Rest & support of injured area / 2.Ice to block swelling, pain, and spasm Muscle Spasm Restricts Motion
  • 3. THE ROLE OF CHIROPRACTIC IN MANAGING INJURIES STAGE II: PASSIVE CONGESTION Fluid trapped in tissues restricts motion, causes pain, & delays healing, Begins by 2 nd to 4 th day Goals of Care for Passive Congestion: 1. Remove fluid 2. Pain relief 3. Begin to restore motion Motion Helps to Remove Wastes and Improve Nutrition
  • 4. THE ROLE OF CHIROPRACTIC IN MANAGING INJURIES
    • Care:
    • Chiropractic Adjustments help
    • a. restore motion
    • b. block pain
    • c. restore normal sensation
    • d. relax tight muscles
    • c. remove swelling
    • e. accelerate healing
    • Heat and cold to remove fluid
    • Controlled Motion Exercises
    • Physical therapy help in some cases
  • 5. THE ROLE OF CHIROPRACTIC IN MANAGING INJURIES TISSUE INJURY CAUSES RESTRICTION OF MOTION DUE TO: 1. Inflammation & swelling 2. Pain 3. Muscle spasm Excess scar tissue with no motion With motion, healthy connective tissue strengthens joint
  • 6. THE ROLE OF CHIROPRACTIC IN MANAGING INJURIES
    • The Major Goals Of Chiropractic Care:
    • Relieve pain 2. Promote full healing 3. Restore & maintain full function 4. Reduce the likelihood of reinjury 5. Prevent accelerated degeneration
  • 7. THE ROLE OF CHIROPRACTIC IN MANAGING INJURIES Chiropractic Care should continue throughout the repair stage. It takes longer for tissues to heal & normal function to be restored than it takes for pain relief. Pain relief is not the only goal, Chiropractic helps: 1. Restore normal motion, function & biomechanics 2. Improve alignment of new connective tissue 3. Prevent shortening of scar tissue & chronic stiffness 4. Restore & maintain flexibility of ligaments and muscles 5. Restore normal muscle toe & coordination 6. Promote quicker, more effective healing 7. Restore & maintain normal sensation 8. Reduce the risk of reinjury and degeneration
  • 8. THE ROLE OF CHIROPRACTIC IN MANAGING INJURIES
  • 9. THE ROLE OF CHIROPRACTIC IN MANAGING INJURIES Excess scar tissue with no motion With motion, healthy connective tissue strengthens joint
  • 10. THE ROLE OF CHIROPRACTIC IN MANAGING INJURIES
    • Beginning 5 days after injury, scar tissue is made for up to 6 weeks .
    • Lack of motion causes excess scar tissue in dense patterns disrupting normal function causing:
    • Excess scarring 6. Weak muscles & ligaments
    • Chronic stiffness 7. Loss of normal sensation
    • Limited range of motion 8. Poor nutrition
    • Poor biomechanics 9. Increased risk of reinjury
    • Chronic pain 10. Accelerated degeneration
    STAGE III: REPAIR
  • 11. THE ROLE OF CHIROPRACTIC IN MANAGING INJURIES If motion is restored & maintained, tissues heal in a much more functional way Chiropractic Relaxes, muscles Restores normal position and movement
  • 12. THE ROLE OF CHIROPRACTIC IN MANAGING INJURIES GOALS OF REPAIR STAGE: RESTORE NORMAL MOTION, SENSATION, PROMOTE FULL HEALING, RELIEVE PAIN.
  • 13. THE ROLE OF CHIROPRACTIC IN MANAGING INJURIES
    • Connective tissue remodels for better strength & flexibility. This often takes 3 to 14 weeks but may take up to 1 year with severe injury.
    • Chiropractic helps to achieve these goals:
    • Improve and maintain motion and flexibility
    • Restore & maintain function
    • Reduce chronic pain
    • Reduce risk of reinjury & degeneration
    STAGE IV: REMODELING
