How Chiropractic Can Help You Avoid Chronic Auto Injury Pain

Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt each year in motor vehicle collisions in the U.S. While most people are able to recover from their injuries fairly quickly, too many people are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Gresham, OR office. Thankfully, 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 people diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. Each participant received chiropractic care and 93 percent of them experienced pain 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 remember that studies have also found that putting off care after a car crash can negatively affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Robert Ramsey immediately is key to having a quicker recovery.

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