Every year, there are millions of auto collisions in the world, and a significant number of people get injured in a car wreck. Although most collisions are "minor," chronic back and neck pain are still frequent health problems. The good news is that chiropractic is a great way to treat these kinds of injuries.
We have helped many auto collision patients in our Portland office, and Dr. Helton has been treating people with these types of injuries since 2005. During a car wreck, your body is subjected to violent forces that it simply wasn't built to deal with. These forces put strain and stress on your neck, shoulder, and back, and can result in injury to the ligaments that hold your spine together. A crash can result in a wide variety of pain symptoms.
A ligament sprain in the neck can cause pain, swelling, and radicular pain in the arm and hand. Chiropractic works well for these types of problems, because chiropractic focuses on restoring the healthy function and flexibility of the injured structures.
Dr. Helton, your Portland chiropractor, can help by reducing irritation 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. Discover more about how we can help you recover or call Dr. Helton today at (503) 771-1974.
