Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt each year in automobile accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to heal from their injuries relatively quickly, many are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Arlington office. Fortunately, Dr. Ernst is here to help you recover from your auto injury.
The science confirms what we see in our office: A British study was carried out on 28 people diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. Each participant received chiropractic adjustments and 93 percent of them found relief following their adjustments, even though 43 percent of whiplash sufferers overall usually never find relief. This confirms that chiropractic care is a great way to avoid chronic pain after a crash.
It's important to note that studies have also found that delaying treatment after a car crash can adversely affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Ernst as soon as possible is key to having a quicker recovery.
Dr. Ernst has helped many auto injury sufferers, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Arlington office today for more information or an appointment.
