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