Every year, there are millions of auto accidents in the world, and a significant number of men and women end up getting hurt in a collision. While most collisions are "minor," chronic neck and back pain are still frequent health problems. The good news is that chiropractic is a great way to address these kinds of injuries.
We have helped many auto accident patients in our Gresham, OR office, and Dr. Robert Ramsey has been helping people with these types of problems since 1997. During a car accident, your body is exposed to large forces that it simply wasn't built to deal with. 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 crash can trigger a wide range of pain issues.
A ligament sprain in the neck can trigger pain, swelling, and radicular symptoms 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. Robert Ramsey, your Gresham, OR chiropractor, can help by decreasing inflammation in the injured area and can help decrease 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. Robert Ramsey today at (503) 667-6744.
