San Antonio Chiropractor, Dr. James Franklin, Helps Locals Involved With
Slip And Fall Injuries
San Antonio, TX, 28-JAN-2012 - Dr. James Franklin, San Antonio
chiropractor, offers members of the community the help they need to
recover from slip-and-fall injuries safely and naturally. The doctor
creates individualized programs that help individuals to regain mobility
and find relief from pain quickly. In addition, patients are able to
improve their quality of life and begin functioning more effectively in
their daily life.
When interviewed recently Dr. Franklin stated, "I encourage anyone who
has been involved in a slip or fall to visit my office even if they do
not feel immediate pain, swelling, or stiffness. In many cases, an
individual may be injured and not begin to feel symptoms for several
hours or days after the incident occurs. However, by beginning a care
program as soon as possible after the accident, we are often able to
begin providing the care that will help the body to heal more quickly
with significantly less pain and immobility."
A patient visiting the doctor will be given an examination that includes
x-rays to identify the damaged areas of the body. Dr. Franklin asks about
past injuries to the areas, reviews past medical history, and discusses
normal activities, diet, and lifestyle. After collecting all of the
information and conducting flexibility and mobility testing, the doctor
will create a care plan that will address the immediate injuries and
provide the education and training to help the patient increase their
ability to avoid future injury.
The doctor will use gentle, low-force manipulation to realign and relieve
compression of discs. He may also use alternative therapies such as
massage and cryotherapy to reduce inflammation and increase oxygen to
tissues and muscles in the damaged areas. Dr. Franklin will often make
recommendations for exercises that are specifically designed to
strengthen the muscle groups supporting the damaged area and use
nutritional therapy to increase the vitamins and nutrients to the body
that will aid in faster healing.
