Internal Organ Damage Injury Chiropractic Rehabilitation

Internal injuries occur under the skin and muscle tissues. Internal organ damage occurs when an organ’s structure becomes altered or begins to malfunction and can be brought on by trauma or disease. Sympathetic nerves send and receive messages, including pain signals, from the brain through the spinal cord. Chiropractors understand the spine and internal organ connection. For example, the splanchnic nerves connect to the stomach, originating between thoracic vertebra six and ten.

Internal Organ Damage Chiropractic Rehabilitation

Internal Organ Damage

Blunt Trauma

  • Blunt trauma/Non-penetrating trauma happens when a forceful impact strikes the body.
  • A car accident, hard fall, or getting hit by a dull object qualifies as blunt trauma.
  • Blunt trauma can rupture the blood vessels and organs.
  • Organs most likely to experience damage include the spleen and liver.

Penetrating Trauma

  • Penetrating trauma happens when an object enters the body.
  • The object can bruise, slice, and pierce organs.
  • Internal bleeding can occur if blood vessels are torn or cut.

Organs fall into two categories:

Solid Organs

The solid organs contain organ tissue throughout and include the following:

  • Liver
  • Spleen
  • Kidneys
  • Pancreas
  • When solid organs go through trauma, they can rupture and/or develop hematomas.
  • A hematoma is when blood vessels rupture and blood collects inside the organ.

Hollow Organs

The hollow organs have an organ wall that surrounds an empty/hollow space that includes:

  • Stomach
  • Intestines
  • Colon
  • Bladder
  • Ureters
  • Hollow organs that experience trauma can tear the walls and allow material to leak out.
  • This leakage can cause peritonitis and sepsis.
  • Individuals can also develop hematomas with blood collecting in the organ wall.

Thoracic Spine

The thoracic spine is the most interconnected with the internal organs and includes:

  • T2 – the chest, heart, and blood vessels.
  • T4 – the gallbladder, tendons, and ligaments.
  • T6 – the stomach and pancreas.
  • T10 – the kidneys.

Lumbar Spine

The lumbar spine is connected to the lower organs.

  • L1 is connected to the large intestine.
  • Issues with L1 might be indicated by constipation or diarrhea.
  • L3 Is connected to the bladder, uterus in women, and prostate in men.
  • Painful menstruation or impotence could indicate problems.

Organ Damage Effects

 Internal bleeding is the most immediate issue arising from internal organ damage.

  • Bleeding can lead to shock as blood volume drops.
  • It can also form hematomas in the organs.
  • Internal bleeding can also occur after less severe trauma and/or be delayed for hours or days.
  • After the individual is stabilized, localized symptoms can appear.
  • Damaged organs can become inflamed and swell, causing abdominal compartment syndrome.
  • Compartment syndrome occurs when swelling restricts blood circulation to and from the organ to the circulatory and nervous systems, causing pain and further damage to the organ tissues.
  • If circulation is not restored, the organs may fail.
  • Severe swelling of the organs can cause heart and lung problems, as the swollen organs leave no room for the lungs to expand or for the heart to pump blood.

Emergency Treatment and Rehabilitation

Blunt force injuries that produce significant organ impact, bleeding, and penetrating injuries may require surgery to repair or remove damaged organs. Doctors may keep the injured individual under observation for minor internal bleeding to see if surgery is needed. Minor internal bleeding often heals on its own without surgery. Injury Medical Chiropractic and Functional Medicine Clinic offer rehabilitation after surgery as a thorough way to expedite healing and recovery.

  • Chiropractic manages pain without medications that can interfere with the ability to perform simple tasks.
  • The body’s functions and biochemical responses from the trauma and surgery are addressed.
  • Inflammation and swelling are alleviated, and prevention is done through adjustments, massage, diet, and health coaching.
