Why do injuries happen?

Dr. Jeremiah Jimerson

IT’S NOT JUST A MATTER OF TREATING SYMPTOMS, BUT SOLVING YOUR WHY

Far too many people waste time and money chasing symptoms. Getting adjustments, countless physical therapy hours, stretching and foam rolling, injections and surgeries while never getting true clarity about WHY their pain happened in the first place – this needs to STOP!

Do you have muscle or nerve pain?

One of the reasons why Dr. Jimerson has developed a 100% word of mouth Chiropractic practice in Charleston over the past 15 years is by being able to effectively reverse engineer repetitive strain injuries.

Most musculoskeletal injuries have a repetitive strain component to them. All repetitive strain is actually just overworked muscles.

Carpal tunnel, rotator cuff, neck pain, back pain, knee pain, the whole lot has a repetitive strain component to it.

Muscles become overworked and underpaid easily due to our daily habits and biomechanics.

An easy way to look at it is to imagine the old Corona typewriters back in the day. You know those old-time typewriters?

So no one back then ever got carpal tunnel syndrome because of those old typewriters. They had a high amplitude. Meaning, if you wanted to type a letter you had to push the key down 1-2 inches. Resulting in a low frequency of typing. You just couldn’t type as fast on those old things.

So the muscles always had a moment to relax in between keys.

Now fast forward to today with our laptop and computer keyboard. Tiny amplitude. You barely have to push the key down to type your letter resulting in a high frequency movement. This means that people can type so quickly that the muscles involved never really get a moment to relax.

Treating symptoms is one thing, finding the root cause of those symptoms SOLVES the problem

The world of pain relief is filled with marketing and massive amounts of myopic thinking. This chiropractor says “a bone is out of place,” that physical therapy office says “just do this 10 pages of exercises” and often the medical approach is to medicate, inject, or cut – sadly, that’s the world that we live in and unlike this website it’s not all black and white.

The fact is, treating symptoms will never result in permanent relief. It’s like duct taping a leaky ceiling. It might look good for a hot minute, but it doesn’t take that long before you wish you hired a better contractor.

After being in the pain and performance world for 20 plus years, my focus today is providing immediate relief, but also being the detective that leaves no stone unturned of showing you how to keep it that way.

Muscles need to eat. If they are under constant tension, it starves them of their blood supply. To top it off, their aren’t able to get rid of their waste products. This results in scar tissue and adhesion build up in the muscles which results in injury. In this case around your wrist, leading to carpal tunnel syndrome.

We can apply this equation to almost all injuries to be able to predictably anticipate where adhesions or scar tissue develops and why.

If you have chronic neck pain and headaches… Your head weighs 8-10 pounds and balances basically on a little stick. For every inch your head translates forward it puts 10 pounds of pressure on the muscles. Meaning your neck and upper back muscles are constantly loaded throughout the day as we are on our computers, driving, eating, reading etc. Hence everyone walking around with tight neck, shoulders and headache muscles.

By evaluation posture, your work activities, your hobbies, sleep positions and lifestyle, Dr. Jimerson can anticipate where you are developing scar tissue and adhesions that leads to chronic pain as well as acute injuries.

We can also use this information if you’re an athlete to begin to tease out where some of your weaknesses are in your body that once resolved, can drastically improve the performance of your sport.

These things are common sense, but it’s amazing that as a society our tendency to treat symptoms and duct tape areas of our health whether it be pain or disease.

If you’re in Charleston and have pain or if you’ve tried every possible therapist in Charleston to solve your pain from Massage Therapy, Physical Therapy, Surgery and Injections, Acupuncture and traditional Chiropractic with limited or no success, we may be able to help.

While Dr. Jimerson has been voted best chiropractor in Charleston, he doesn’t necessarily look at things from a chiropractic perspective and thus avoids unnecessary chiropractic adjustments and x-rays. It is this methodology and his ability to look at injuries from an outside the box perspective that Charleston Orthopedic Surgeons, Physical Therapists and other Chiropractors routinely refer complex and unfixable pain cases to him.
