Every year, there are millions of auto accidents in the world, and a significant number of people end up getting hurt in a crash. Although most collisions are "minor," chronic neck and back pain are still frequent health issues. The good news is that chiropractic is a fantastic way to address these kinds of injuries.
We've treated many auto accident patients in our San Angelo office, and Dr. Pittman has been helping people with these types of injuries since 2003. During a car accident, your body is subjected to large forces that it simply wasn't built to handle. These forces put strain and stress on your neck, shoulder, and back, and can cause injury to the ligaments that hold your spine together. A collision can result in a wide range of pain problems.
A ligament sprain in the neck can trigger pain, swelling, and radicular symptoms in the arm and hand. Chiropractic works well for these types of problems, because chiropractic concentrates on restoring the healthy function and flexibility of the injured tissues.
Dr. Pittman, your San Angelo chiropractor, can assist by decreasing irritation in the injured 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. Discover more about how we can help you get well or call Dr. Pittman today at (325) 223-9355.
