Hi from the Ottawa Orleans Chiropractor 613-747-0444 Beacon Hill Chiropractic Clinic!
If you have a fall, get your spine checked!
We received a call from one of our patient’s who tripped and fell and broke his shoulder. After receiving emergency treatment and being put in an immobilizing sling, he came in to have his spine checked.
The first photo of the results of the Spine Align would be a typical pattern of someone coming in for a maintenance adjustment. A few vertebrae are slightly restricted or not moving well before the adjustment with the Spine Align. Following the adjustment the red line has become straighter indicating the joints are moving better and in harmony with each other. No serious problems here.
In the second photo we have the pattern of someone who had a trauma by falling and breaking their shoulder. You can see that the fall caused a major disturbance in the spine as indicated by the very irregular alignment pattern. The adjustment improved the pattern dramatically which would help the person to feel better and have less secondary problems post injury.
Note that the Spine Align is not used to treat a fracture, but this shows a clear indication that following a fall, one should have their spine checked as soon as possible. The patient was checked the same day as the injury and healed very fast. He was able to get back to a regular routine of activities sooner and avoid what could have become more serious problems handling pain.
If you do have a fall, get your spine checked as soon as possible. Call the Beacon Hill Chiropractic Clinic at 613 747 0444 right away.
