We see many folks with neck pain after a car crash in our Aloha & Salem, OR chiropractic practice. Because of the nature of car crashes, neck injury is very common and it's a problem that Oregon Medical Centers may be able to treat.
In a crash, your body is exposed to forces more severe than what a fighter pilot experiences, so it's no wonder injury may occur. In fact, the first head restraints were designed for jet fighter planes to prevent this exact type of injury!
Neck pain may become chronic after a crash if not treated promptly. We recommend that patients come into our Aloha & Salem, OR practice immediately after an injury. While you may experience extreme tenderness and swelling, Oregon Medical Centers may still gently work to mobilize the tissues of your neck to prevent scar tissue from forming.
If you've been in a collision, it's important to make sure that you get the care you need to treat your auto injury pain. Call our Aloha & Salem, OR practice today at (503) 390-1552 to make an appointment today.
