Every year, there are millions of car crashes in the world, and a significant number of people end up getting hurt in a car wreck. While most accidents are "minor," chronic spine pain are still common health issues. The good news is that chiropractic care is a great way to treat these kinds of injuries.
We have helped many auto accident patients in our Arlington office, and Dr. Ernst has been treating people with these types of problems since 1990. During a collision, your body is exposed to large forces that it simply wasn't built to handle. These forces put strain and stress on your neck, shoulder, and back, and can cause damage to the ligaments that hold your spine together. A collision can result in a wide range of pain symptoms.
A ligament tear in the neck can trigger pain, swelling, and radicular problems in the arm and hand. Chiropractic works well for these types of problems, because chiropractic concentrates on restoring the healthy function and mobility of the injured structures.
Dr. Ernst, your Arlington chiropractor, can help by reducing inflammation in the injured 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 or call Dr. Ernst today at (360) 659-8464.
