Approximately 2.3 million people are injured every year in motor vehicle collisions in the U.S. While most people are able to heal from their injuries relatively quickly, too many people are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Juneau, AK office. Fortunately, Dr. Messerschmidt 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 pain. Each participant received chiropractic adjustments 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 long-term pain after an auto injury.

It's important to remember that studies have also found that delaying care after a car crash can negatively affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Messerschmidt at the earliest opportunity is key to having a quicker recovery.

Dr. Messerschmidt has helped many auto injury sufferers, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Juneau, AK office today for more information or an appointment.
