From the time that we're toddlers, and well into our adult years; people will experience different forms of trauma. Physically speaking, trauma simply means an event that was harmful to the individual. Micro-trauma refers to the tiny injuries we sustain and sometimes ignore. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome for example, arises after years of ergonomically poor usage of a computer mouse. Micro-tears within the Carpal Tunnel cause adhesions to form, these adhesions are much like a scab, another way for your body to heal. If the healing is not monitored properly, these adhesions can grow irregularly and cause pain and radicular symptoms in the wrist.
A whiplash injury in an auto-accident is certainly a macro-trauma. It is traumatic psychologically, emotionally, and physically. Stress hormones further increase inflammation in the body that can exacerbate these issues. Through Chiropractic management, inflammation is decreased thus minimizing the harmful affects of constant inflammation. When the body can continue to be in motion while healing from an injury, optimal healing function is acheived.
