Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt each year in auto accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to recover from their injuries relatively easily, many folks are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Arlington office. Thankfully, 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 care 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 long-term pain after an auto injury.
It's important to note that research has also found that putting off care 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 speedier recovery.
Dr. Ernst has worked with many auto injury patients, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Arlington office today for more information or an appointment.
