Every year, there are millions of car crashes in the world, and a significant number of people get injured in a collision. While most crashes are "minor," chronic neck and back pain are still frequent health problems. The good news is that chiropractic care is a very good way to help these kinds of injuries.
We've helped many auto collision patients in our Yakima office, and Dr. Covington has been helping people with these types of injuries since 2010. During a car accident, your body is exposed 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 result in damage to the ligaments that hold your neck and back together. A crash can trigger a wide range of pain issues.
A ligament tear in the neck can cause pain, swelling, and radicular pain in the arm and hand. Chiropractic works well for these types of injuries, because chiropractic focuses on restoring the healthy function and mobility of the injured tissues.
Dr. Covington, your Yakima chiropractor, can assist by lowering irritation in the damaged area and can help decrease the creation 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. Covington today at (509) 895-7535.
