Each year, there are millions of auto accidents in the world, and a significant number of men and women end up getting hurt in a crash. While most collisions are "minor," chronic neck and back pain are still common health issues. The good news is that chiropractic is a fantastic way to address these kinds of injuries.
We have treated many auto collision patients in our Highland Park, Saint Paul, Minnesota office, and Robert C Slater, DC has been treating people with these types of injuries since 1980. During a car accident, your body is subjected to powerful forces that it simply wasn't built to handle. These forces place strain and stress on your neck, shoulder, and back, and can result in injury to the ligaments that hold your neck and back together. A crash can result in a wide range of pain problems.
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 injuries, because chiropractic concentrates on restoring the healthy function and mobility of the injured tissues.
Robert C Slater, DC, your Highland Park, Saint Paul, Minnesota chiropractor, can assist by decreasing inflammation in the injured 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. Learn more about how we can help you recover or call Robert C Slater, DC today at (651) 699-3366.
