AUTO INJURY AND CHRONIC PAIN
Bellingham, WA Chronic Pain Treatment
Many of our Bellingham, WA patients question as to why they have so much pain following a car collision. Car crashes need not damage the vehicle much to cause a lot of pain.
Research shows that 1 in 4, or 25% of people involved in a motor vehicle collision will end up suffering from chronic pain. If you are suffering from chronic pain due to a car accident, you are not alone. Integrative Health Bellingham sees a lot of patients in our Bellingham, WA office seek out our care having suffered with chronic pain for years after their initial auto collision injury.
Understanding the causes of chronic pain can be put in simple terms; certain areas of the body are more susceptible to injury, even in minor collisions. The muscles, ligaments, and nerves in your neck and back are some of these anatomical structures that are most commonly injured in car accidents. These injuries require prompt treatment of the damaged tissues to loss of mobility, function, avoid the development of scar tissue and chronic pain.
