Every year, there are millions of auto collisions in the world, and a substantial number of men and women get injured in a crash. While most crashes 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've helped many auto accident patients in our Tumwater office, and Dr. Harrell has been treating people with these types of injuries since 2009. During a collision, your body is subjected to large forces that it simply wasn't built to handle. These forces place strain and stress on your neck, shoulder, and back, and can cause damage to the ligaments that hold your neck and back together. A crash can trigger a vast array of pain symptoms.
A ligament sprain in the neck can trigger pain, swelling, and radicular pain in the arm and hand. Chiropractic care works well for these types of problems, because chiropractic focuses on restoring the healthy function and mobility of the injured tissues.
Dr. Harrell, your Tumwater chiropractor, can assist by reducing inflammation 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 or call Dr. Harrell today at (360) 489-0635.
