Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt each year in motor vehicle collisions in the U.S. While some people are able to recover from their injuries relatively easily, many folks are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Juneau, AK office. Thankfully, 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 care 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 chronic pain after an auto injury.
It's important to note that research has also found that putting off care after a car crash can negatively affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Messerschmidt as soon as possible is key to having a speedier 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.
