More than 2 million people are hurt every year in car accidents in the U.S. While many people are able to get relief from their injuries fairly quickly, others are left to deal with chronic issues and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Arlington office. Thankfully, 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 conducted on 28 people diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. Each participant received chiropractic adjustments and 93% of them experienced pain relief following their adjustments, even though 43% of whiplash sufferers overall usually never find relief. This confirms that chiropractic therapy is a great way to avoid chronic pain after a crash.
It's important to note that studies have also found that delaying care after a car crash can adversely affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Ernst immediately is key to having a quicker recovery.
Dr. Ernst has worked with many auto injury sufferers, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Arlington office today for more information or an appointment.
