Each year, there are millions of car crashes in the world, and a substantial number of men and women end up getting injured in a collision. While most accidents are "minor," chronic neck and back pain are still frequent health problems. The good news is that chiropractic is a great way to treat these kinds of injuries.
We've treated many auto injury patients in our Parkland, FL office, and Dr. Neil Scharf has been treating people with these types of problems since 2000. During a car wreck, your body is exposed to powerful 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 spinal column together. A collision can trigger a wide variety of pain symptoms.
A ligament sprain in the neck can cause pain, swelling, and radicular problems in the arm and hand. Chiropractic care works well for these types of injuries, because chiropractic focuses on restoring the healthy function and flexibility of the injured tissues.
Dr. Neil Scharf, your Parkland, FL chiropractor, can assist by decreasing irritation in the damaged 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 recover or call Dr. Neil Scharf today at (954) 227-0088.
