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 issues. The good news is that chiropractic is a great way to address these kinds of injuries.
We have treated many auto accident patients in our Juneau, AK office, and Dr. Messerschmidt has been helping people with these types of problems since 1983. During a collision, your body is exposed to violent forces that it simply wasn't built to handle. These forces place strain and stress on your neck, shoulder, and back, and can cause injury to the ligaments that hold your spinal column together. A collision can cause a wide variety of pain symptoms.
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 problems, because chiropractic concentrates on restoring the healthy function and mobility of the injured structures.
Dr. Messerschmidt, your Juneau, AK chiropractor, can assist by reducing inflammation in the damaged area and can help minimize the creation 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 here or call Dr. Messerschmidt today at (907) 789-1344.
