Each year, there are millions of car crashes in the world, and a substantial number of people end up getting hurt in a car wreck. While most collisions are "minor," chronic neck and back pain are still common health problems. The good news is that chiropractic care is a fantastic way to correct these kinds of injuries.
We've treated many auto accident patients in our Gresham, OR office, and Dr. Robert Ramsey has been treating people with these types of injuries since 1997. During a car wreck, your body is exposed to large forces that it simply wasn't built to deal with. These forces place stress and strain on your neck, shoulder, and back, and can result in injury to the ligaments that hold your neck and back together. A crash can cause a wide variety 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 concentrates on restoring the healthy function and mobility of the injured tissues.
Dr. Robert Ramsey, your Gresham, OR chiropractor, can assist by decreasing 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. Discover more about how we can help you get well or call Dr. Robert Ramsey today at (503) 667-6744.
