If you have experienced a job related or personal injury, the most ideal time to call us is immediately following the injury. You may not be experiencing pain from your injury- this is not uncommon. Sometimes pain takes several days to weeks to set in, but you don't want to wait that long to call us. If you have experienced a slip, fall, or back pain from lifting something heavy or even sitting too long, these are the work-related injuries in Columbus that Dr. Hinze can help you heal from.

Our Chiropractor in Columbus Treats Work-Related and Personal Injuries

After an injury, our chiropractor will provide an examination and evaluation. If an x-ray is necessary, we will order these at this time. After your exam, we will perform your first chiropractic adjustment. Along with chiropractic manipulation, we may also suggest the use of acupuncture to compliment your chiropractic care. If you are worried about calling us because you are not sure if your insurance will cover you for worker's compensation, just following your injury is the very best time to ensure your insurance will cover it. When you wait too long after work-related injuries in Columbus, your insurance may be hesitant to cover your injury because they may claim it was caused by something other than that.

Personal injuries may also occur when doing regular, everyday activities such as shoveling snow, during a sporting or recreational activity, gardening, exercising, and working outside. Dr. Hinze is experienced in treating Columbus's personal injuries. Personal injuries can easily create unexpected low, mid, and cervical back pain, neck pain, shoulder injuries, knee pain, elbow pain, and more. When left untreated, these injuries can lead to complications such as headaches, fatigue, visual and emotional disturbances. Dr. Hinze stresses the importance of coming to see us for an evaluation immediately following your Columbus personal injury to prevent it from turning into something more serious.

Personal injury can also occur as a result of an automobile accident. The force of a car impacting you from behind, called whiplash is one of the most common injuries following a car accident. The "snapping" of the neck can lead to immediate misalignment of the spine. This is another form of personal injury that you may not realize the results from immediately. The absence of pain however does not indicate that an injury did not occur. Immediately following an auto accident is the best time to be seen by our Columbus chiropractor Dr. Hinze.

Personal Injury FAQs from Our Columbus Chiropractor

When you're in agony from a personal injury, you may have questions as well as pain -- you want to know what's happened to you and exactly what you can do about it. Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions about personal injuries from our Columbus chiropractor at Hinze Chiropractic Acupuncture.

What counts as a personal injury?

The term "personal injury" really applies to any kind of physical damage that occurs to an individual, as opposed to property. If you've been hurt on the job, in the home or at the hands of an assailant, for instance, you've sustained a personal injury.

What are some examples of Columbus's personal injuries?

Falls in the home, snow-shoveling back strain and automobile accident injuries are all common examples of Columbus personal injuries. Such incidents may cause vertebral misalignment, torn muscles, stretched ligaments, and pinched or damaged nerves.

What kinds of work-related injuries in Columbus do you see?

Work-related injuries in Columbus may involve violent accidents (including vehicular accidents on the job), but they can also be the result of repetitive strain due to poor workplace ergonomics. Constant stooping, stretching, or twisting can lead to a variety of overuse injuries, from carpal tunnel syndrome to back problems.

How do acute personal injuries lead to chronic pain?

An untreated personal injury can become a chronic pain condition in numerous ways. For instance, a herniated disc may cause constant or recurring nerve impingement, producing sciatica or other symptoms. Damaged soft tissues may heal incorrectly, resulting in scar tissue accumulation that makes motion painful.

When should I schedule an appointment with your Columbus chiropractor?

You should schedule an appointment with your Columbus chiropractor as soon as possible following your injury. Injuries can delay their symptoms, causing you to hurt yourself even worse before getting treatment. Additionally, you may have more trouble getting workers compensation coverage the longer you are off your care.

How does your chiropractor in Columbus treat personal injuries?

Our chiropractor in Columbus will evaluate your condition to determine whether you have suffered a spinal misalignment, pinched nerves, disc damage or some other form of injury. Chiropractic adjustments can restore misaligned vertebral structures to their proper position. Intersegmental traction may also be employed to ease nerve impingement and disc problems.

What treatment methods apart from spinal adjustment do you recommend?

We may prescribe a combination of natural therapies in conjunction with chiropractic care to treat the various types of damage you have sustained. Chiropractic Care can help injured soft tissue heal more readily, while acupuncture relieves pain by stimulating endorphin production. Electrical muscle stimulation and corrective exercises can help you regain normal function.
