More than 2 million people are injured every year in automobile accidents in the U.S. While a lot of people are able to get relief from their injuries relatively quickly, many folks are left to deal with chronic issues and impairment. We see several of these patients here in our Juneau office. Thankfully, Dr. Messerschmidt is here to help you get relief from your auto injury.
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 care and 93 percent of them found relief following their adjustments, even though 43% of whiplash sufferers overall usually never find relief. This confirms that chiropractic care is a great way to avoid long-term problems after a car crash.
It's important to see that research has also found that delaying treatment after a car crash can adversely affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Messerschmidt at the earliest opportunity is key to having a faster recovery.
Dr. Messerschmidt has worked with many auto injury patients, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Juneau office today for more information or an appointment.
