Each year, there are millions of auto accidents in the world, and a significant number of people end up getting hurt in a car wreck. While most collisions are "minor," chronic back and neck pain are still common health problems. The good news is that chiropractic is a very good way to treat these kinds of injuries.
We've helped many auto injury patients in our Napa, CA office, and Dr. Roxann Bettencourt, DC has been treating people with these types of problems since 2006. During a crash, your body is exposed to large forces that it simply wasn't built to handle. These forces put stress and strain on your neck, shoulder, and back, and can result in damage to the ligaments that hold your neck and back together. A collision can result in a vast array of pain problems.
A ligament tear in the neck can cause pain, swelling, and radicular problems in the arm and hand. Chiropractic works well for these types of problems, because chiropractic focuses on restoring the healthy function and flexibility of the injured tissues.
Dr. Roxann Bettencourt, DC, your Napa, CA chiropractor, can help by lowering inflammation in the injured 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. Discover more about how we can help you recover or call Dr. Roxann Bettencourt, DC today at (707) 257-3600.
