Castle Hills Chiropractic discusses the possible rehabilitation methods that may be involved in the recovery for those involved in the Boston Marathon bombing.

In the wake of the devastating and tragic bombing at the Boston Marathon on April 15, it is a difficult task to begin the journey towards recovery. For those victims involved, their recovery could involve much healing and rehabilitation. Castle Hills Chiropractic, a family chiropractic practice and physical therapy office in Carrollton, explains some of the ways the injured will need to begin the rehabilitation process.

Most of the injuries incurred were to lower limbs, muscles and tendons, with some involving more horrific injuries to the soft tissue and the bone. These victims are going to have to re-establish strength, balance, proper gait and range of motion. Proper balance and gait are required in order to prevent further degeneration of the joints surrounding the injured soft tissue, as well as the Sacroiliac joints in the pelvis and the vertebral joints in the lumbar/lower spine. The injured will also undergo rehabilitation to reprogram the proprioceptors in those joints to direct the appropriate messages to the brain for balance.

The biomechanics of the lower limbs working properly will be the focus of recovery. Chiropractors can help the injured to improve this proprioception of the joints that are adjusted, as well as through a technique of Neuromuscular Reeducation (NMR). Chiropractors also utilize modalities such as ultrasound to reduce inflammation and scar tissue inthe soft tissues, as well as Interferential modality to reduce inflammation and pain.

Chiropractors specially trained in sports Injuries are well versed in soft tissue injuries and how they relate to the associated joints and the effects of these injuries long-term if not properly treated.

While the bombing happened in Boston, the entire country feels the sorrow for those involved. Castle Hills Chiropractic is a practice that cares. For more information about Castle Hills and their services, please visit their website at:
