Each year, there are millions of auto accidents throughout the world, and a substantial number of men and women end up getting hurt in a car accident. While most collisions are "minor," chronic neck and back pain are still frequent health problems. The good news is that chiropractic care is a fantastic way to help these kinds of injuries.
We have helped many auto collision patients in our Arlington office, and Dr. Ernst has been treating people with these types of problems for many years. During a auto collision, your body is exposed to powerful forces that it simply wasn't built to deal with. These forces place strain and stress on your neck, shoulder, and back, and can cause damage to the ligaments that hold your spinal column together. A crash can trigger a wide variety of pain symptoms.
A ligament tear in the neck can result in pain, swelling, and radicular pain in the arm and hand. Chiropractic Treatment works well for these types of problems, because chiropractic focuses on restoring the healthy function and mobility of the injured structures.
Dr. Ernst, your Arlington chiropractor, can help by decreasing inflammation in the damaged area and can help diminish the creation 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.
