We work with several auto injury sufferers in our Portland office, and several of these folks are suffering from chronic pain caused by an old crash. In fact, research shows that a significant percentage of rear-end collisions lead to pain and disability even ten years after the original injury.
Dr. Helton is here to help you avoid developing chronic symptoms by helping to restore the natural function of your spine soon after a collision.
The most common causes of chronic pain are reduced flexibility of your spinal column and the formation of scar tissue in your spine. The ligaments of your neck and back can easily be injured during a crash, and chiropractic care works by decreasing inflammation and restoring normal motion.
If you're close to our Portland office, and you've been injured in a crash, don't wait to get care. Dr. Helton is here for you. Give us a call today at (503) 771-1974 for an appointment or for more information.
