Each year, there are millions of car crashes in the world, and a substantial number of men and women end up getting hurt in a car wreck. While most collisions are "minor," chronic neck and back pain are still frequent health issues. The good news is that chiropractic care is a very good way to address these kinds of injuries.
We have treated many auto collision patients in our Juneau, AK office, and Dr. Messerschmidt has been treating people with these types of problems since 1983. During a car accident, your body is exposed to violent forces that it simply wasn't built to handle. These forces place stress and strain on your neck, shoulder, and back, and can cause injury to the ligaments that hold your spinal column together. A collision can trigger a vast array of pain symptoms.
A ligament tear in the neck can trigger pain, swelling, and radicular pain in the arm and hand. Chiropractic works well for these types of injuries, because chiropractic concentrates on restoring the healthy function and mobility of the injured structures.
Dr. Messerschmidt, your Juneau, AK chiropractor, can assist by decreasing irritation 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 or call Dr. Messerschmidt today at (907) 789-1344.
