Each year, there are millions of car crashes in the world, and a substantial number of men and women get hurt in a crash. Although most crashes are "minor," chronic back and neck pain are still common health problems. The good news is that chiropractic care is a fantastic way to treat these kinds of injuries.
We have treated many auto accident patients in our Arlington, VA office, and Dr. Holcombe has been treating people with these types of injuries since 2000. During a car accident, your body is exposed to violent forces that it simply wasn't built to deal with. These forces put stress and strain on your neck, shoulder, and back, and can result in injury to the ligaments that hold your neck and back together. A collision can trigger a wide range of pain symptoms.
A ligament tear in the neck can trigger 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 areas.
Dr. Holcombe, your Arlington, VA chiropractor, can assist by decreasing irritation in the injured 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. Holcombe today at (703) 933-9000.
