Each year, there are millions of car crashes in the world, and a substantial number of men and women get hurt in a car wreck. Although most collisions are "minor," chronic neck and back pain are still frequent health problems. The good news is that chiropractic care is a fantastic way to correct these kinds of injuries.
We have treated many auto accident patients in our Burke office, and Dr. Zapf has been treating people with these types of problems since 1986. During a crash, your body is subjected to large forces that it simply wasn't built to deal with. These forces place stress and strain on your neck, shoulder, and back, and can cause damage to the ligaments that hold your spinal column together. A collision can trigger a wide range of pain symptoms.
A ligament sprain in the neck can result in pain, swelling, and radicular problems in the arm and hand. Chiropractic care works well for these types of injuries, because chiropractic concentrates on restoring the healthy function and mobility of the injured tissues.
Dr. Zapf, your Burke chiropractor, can help by decreasing irritation in the damaged area and can help reduce 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 get well or call Dr. Zapf today at (703) 455-9555.
