Over 2 million people are hurt every year in auto accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to recover from their injuries fairly quickly, others are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Arlington office. Fortunately, Dr. Ernst is here to help you heal from your auto injury.
The science confirms what we see in our office: A British study was carried out on 28 individuals diagnosed with chronic whiplash pain. Each participant received chiropractic adjustments and 93 percent of them experienced improvements following their adjustments, even though 43 percent of whiplash sufferers overall usually never find relief. This confirms that chiropractic is a great way to avoid chronic pain after an auto injury.
It's important to remember that research has also found that delaying treatment after a car crash can adversely affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Ernst at the earliest opportunity is key to having a speedier recovery.
Dr. Ernst has helped many auto injury patients, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Arlington office today for more information or an appointment.
