Every year, there are millions of auto accidents in the world, and a substantial number of people get injured in a collision. While most accidents are "minor," chronic neck and back pain are still frequent health issues. The good news is that chiropractic care is a great way to correct these kinds of injuries.
We've helped many auto collision patients in our Yakima office, and Dr. Kroner has been treating people with these types of injuries since 1992. 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 spinal column together. A collision can cause a wide range of pain symptoms.
A ligament sprain in the neck can result in pain, swelling, and radicular symptoms in the arm and hand. Chiropractic works well for these types of problems, because chiropractic focuses on restoring the healthy function and mobility of the injured structures.
Dr. Kroner, your Yakima chiropractor, can help by decreasing inflammation in the damaged area and can help reduce 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. Kroner today at (509) 972-4000.
