Causes of Chronic Pain after a Car Crash

Gresham, OR neck pain and headache treatmentApproximately 2.3 million people are injured every year in automobile accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to heal from their injuries relatively quickly, others are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Gresham, OR office. Thankfully, Dr. Robert Ramsey is here to help you recover from your auto injury.

Research Supports Chiropractic Helps Prevent Chronic Pain After an Auto Accident

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 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 delaying treatment 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 speedier recovery.
