What causes persistent pain after a car crash?
Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt each year in car accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to heal from their injuries relatively easily, too many people are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. 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.
Research Proves Chiropractic Helps Prevent Chronic Pain After an Auto Accident
The science confirms what we see in our office: A British study was conducted on 28 men and women diagnosed with chronic whiplash pain. Each participant received chiropractic adjustments 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 care is a great way to avoid long-term pain after a crash.
It's important to remember that studies have also found that delaying care after a car crash can adversely affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Robert Ramsey as soon as possible is key to having a quicker recovery.
