Every year, there are millions of car crashes in the world, and a substantial number of men and women end up getting injured in a collision. Although most crashes are "minor," chronic back and neck pain are still frequent health issues. The good news is that chiropractic care is a great way to address these kinds of injuries.
We've helped many auto collision patients in our Arlington office, and Dr. Ernst has been helping people with these types of injuries since 1990. During a crash, your body is subjected to violent forces that it simply wasn't built to handle. These forces put stress and strain on your neck, shoulder, and back, and can result in injury to the ligaments that hold your neck and back together. A crash can cause a wide variety of pain symptoms.
A ligament sprain in the neck can result in pain, swelling, and radicular problems in the arm and hand. Chiropractic care works well for these types of problems, because chiropractic concentrates on restoring the healthy function and mobility of the injured areas.
Dr. Ernst, your Arlington chiropractor, can help by decreasing irritation in the damaged area and can help decrease the formation of scar tissue that can cause chronic pain and disability.
You don't have to suffer from auto injury pain. Learn more about how we can help you recover here or call Dr. Ernst today at (360) 659-8464.
