What causes long-term pain after a motor vehicle accident?
Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt every year in motor vehicle collisions in the U.S. While some people are able to recover from their injuries relatively easily, others 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.
Research Supports 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 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 long-term pain after an auto injury.
It's important to note that studies have also found that putting off care after a car crash can adversely affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Robert Ramsey as soon as possible is key to having a speedier recovery.
