Each year, there are millions of auto collisions in the world, and a substantial number of people end up getting injured in a collision. Although most accidents are "minor," chronic neck and back pain are still common health problems. The good news is that chiropractic care is a very good way to treat these kinds of injuries.
We have treated many auto injury 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 subjected 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 result in injury to the ligaments that hold your spinal column together. A collision can cause a vast array of pain issues.
A ligament sprain in the neck can result in pain, swelling, and radicular problems in the arm and hand. Chiropractic works well for these types of injuries, because chiropractic focuses on restoring the healthy function and mobility of the injured areas.
Dr. Robert Ramsey, your Gresham, OR chiropractor, can assist by lowering inflammation in the injured area and can help minimize the creation 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 get well or call Dr. Robert Ramsey today at (503) 667-6744.
