Approximately 2.3 million people are injured every year in car accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to heal from their injuries fairly easily, 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 recover 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 syndrome. Each participant received chiropractic treatment 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 is a great way to avoid long-term pain after a crash.
It's important to note that research has also found that delaying treatment after a car crash can adversely affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Ernst immediately is key to having a speedier recovery.
