Each year, there are millions of auto accidents in the world, and a significant number of people get hurt in a collision. Even though most collisions are "minor," chronic neck and back pain are still common health problems. The good news is that chiropractic is a fantastic way to treat these kinds of injuries.
We have treated many auto collision patients in our Anchorage office, and Dr. Matthisen has been treating people with these types of problems since 1995. During a collision, your body is subjected 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 result in a wide range of pain symptoms.
A ligament sprain in the neck can cause 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. Matthisen, your Anchorage chiropractor, can help by decreasing irritation in the injured area and can help reduce the formation of scar tissue that can cause chronic pain and disability.
You don't have to suffer from auto injury pain. Discover more about how we can help you recover or call Dr. Matthisen today at (907) 349-4212.
