Over 2 million people are hurt each year in auto accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to recover from their injuries fairly easily, 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 conducted on 28 people 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 care is a great way to avoid long-term pain after a crash.
It's important to remember that research has also found that putting off care after a car crash can adversely affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Messerschmidt as soon as possible is key to having a quicker recovery.
Dr. Messerschmidt has helped many auto injury patients, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Juneau, AK office today for more information or an appointment.
