Avoiding Chronic Pain After an Auto Injury

Approximately 2.3 million people are injured each year in car accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to heal from their injuries fairly easily, many folks are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Gresham, OR office. Fortunately, Dr. Robert Ramsey is here to help you heal 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 pain. Each participant received chiropractic treatment 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 care is a great way to avoid chronic pain after an auto injury.

It's important to remember that studies have also found that delaying treatment after a car crash can adversely affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Robert Ramsey at the earliest opportunity is key to having a speedier recovery.

Dr. Robert Ramsey has helped many auto injury patients, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Gresham, OR office today for more information or an appointment.
