Each year, there are millions of auto accidents in the world, and a substantial number of people get injured in a car wreck. While most crashes are "minor," chronic back and neck pain are still frequent health issues. The good news is that chiropractic is a great way to treat these kinds of injuries.
We've treated many auto collision patients in our Pinole office, and Dr. Jung has been helping people with these types of injuries since 2003. During a car accident, your body is subjected to powerful forces that it simply wasn't built to handle. These forces put strain and stress on your neck, shoulder, and back, and can cause damage to the ligaments that hold your neck and back together. A crash can result in a wide variety of pain symptoms.
A ligament tear in the neck can cause pain, swelling, and radicular symptoms in the arm and hand. Chiropractic care works well for these types of problems, because chiropractic focuses on restoring the healthy function and flexibility of the injured structures.
Dr. Jung, your Pinole chiropractor, can assist by lowering inflammation in the damaged 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 recover or call Dr. Jung today at (510) 243-7500.
