Each year, there are millions of auto collisions in the world, and a substantial number of people get injured in a crash. Although most accidents are "minor," chronic neck and back pain are still frequent health issues. The good news is that chiropractic care is a great way to treat these kinds of injuries.
We have treated many auto injury patients in our Parkland, FL office, and Dr. Neil Scharf has been treating people with these types of injuries since 2000. During a collision, your body is exposed to powerful forces that it simply wasn't built to deal with. These forces place strain and stress on your neck, shoulder, and back, and can cause damage to the ligaments that hold your spine together. A crash can trigger a vast array of pain problems.
A ligament tear in the neck can cause pain, swelling, and radicular symptoms in the arm and hand. Chiropractic works well for these types of injuries, because chiropractic focuses on restoring the healthy function and flexibility of the injured structures.
Dr. Neil Scharf, your Parkland, FL chiropractor, can assist by lowering irritation in the injured area and can help minimize 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 get well here or call Dr. Neil Scharf today at (954) 227-0088.
