Every year, there are millions of auto collisions in the world, and a substantial number of people get hurt in a collision. Although most accidents are "minor," chronic back and neck pain are still common health issues. The good news is that chiropractic is a very good way to address these kinds of injuries.
We've treated many auto accident patients in our Gresham, OR office, and Dr. Robert Ramsey has been helping people with these types of injuries since 1997. During a crash, your body is exposed to large 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 injury to the ligaments that hold your neck and back together. A crash can cause a wide range of pain symptoms.
A ligament tear in the neck can cause pain, swelling, and radicular problems in the arm and hand. Chiropractic care works well for these types of injuries, because chiropractic concentrates on restoring the healthy function and mobility of the injured structures.
Dr. Robert Ramsey, your Gresham, OR chiropractor, can help by lowering irritation 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 here or call Dr. Robert Ramsey today at (503) 667-6744.
