Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt each year in motor vehicle collisions in the U.S. While some people are able to recover from their injuries fairly quickly, many are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Arlington, WA office. Fortunately, Dr. Ernst is here to help you heal from your auto injury.
The science confirms what we see at Ernst Chiropractic: A British study was carried out on 28 individuals diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. 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 note that research has also found that putting off care after a car crash can negatively affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Ernst at the earliest opportunity is key to having a speedier recovery.
Dr. Ernst has worked with many auto injury sufferers, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Arlington, WA office today for more information or an appointment.
