With all of the auto injury patients we've treated in our practice serving Seattle, WA, we've seen many folks suffering from chronic pain caused by an old collision. In fact, research shows that a significant percentage of rear-end collisions result in pain and disability even ten years after the crash.
Our goal at Dr. Alys Smith, DC is to help you avoid developing chronic pain by quickly restoring the natural function of your spine soon after a crash.
The most common causes of chronic pain are the reduced mobility of your spine and the development of scar tissue in your spine. The ligaments of your spine can easily be injured during a crash, and chiropractic works by reducing inflammation and restoring normal motion.
Please take your early symptoms after a crash seriously and don't wait to receive care. We're here for you at Dr. Alys Smith, DC. Give us a call today at (206) 682-1460 for an appointment or for more information.
