Approximately 2.3 million people are injured 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 Anchorage office. Luckily, Dr. Matthisen 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 individuals diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. 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 note that research has also found that delaying treatment after a car crash can adversely affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Matthisen as soon as possible is key to having a quicker recovery.
Dr. Matthisen has helped many auto injury sufferers, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Anchorage office today for more information or an appointment.
