Each year, there are millions of car crashes in the world, and a substantial number of people end up getting injured in a car wreck. While most collisions are "minor," chronic back and neck pain are still common health issues. The good news is that chiropractic care is a fantastic way to address these kinds of injuries.
We have treated many auto injury patients in our Arlington office, and Dr. Ernst has been treating people with these types of injuries since 1990. During a collision, your body is subjected to large forces that it simply wasn't built to deal with. These forces place stress and strain on your neck, shoulder, and back, and can result in injury to the ligaments that hold your spine together. A collision can trigger a wide range of pain problems.
A ligament sprain in the neck can result in pain, swelling, and radicular symptoms in the arm and hand. Chiropractic care works well for these types of injuries, because chiropractic concentrates on restoring the healthy function and flexibility of the injured tissues.
Dr. Ernst, your Arlington chiropractor, can help by reducing irritation in the damaged area and can help decrease the creation of scar tissue that can cause chronic pain and disability.
You don't have to suffer from auto injury pain. Discover more about how we can help you get well or call Dr. Ernst today at (360) 659-8464.
