Every year, there are millions of auto accidents in the world, and a substantial number of men and women end up getting hurt in a crash. While most crashes are "minor," chronic neck and back pain are still common health problems. The good news is that chiropractic is a great way to treat these kinds of injuries.
We have treated many auto collision patients in our Downtown St. Louis, MO office, and Dr. Holland has been treating people with these types of injuries since 2000. 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 spinal column together. A crash can result in a vast array of pain issues.
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 flexibility of the injured structures.
Dr. Holland, your Downtown St. Louis, MO chiropractor, can help by lowering inflammation 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. Learn more about how we can help you recover or call Dr. Holland today at (314) 588-9100.
