Avoiding Chronic Pain After an Auto Injury

Anchorage auto injury recoveryApproximately 2.3 million people are hurt every year in automobile accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to recover from their injuries relatively easily, others are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Anchorage office. Fortunately, Dr. Matthisen is here to help you recover from your auto injury.

Research Supports Chiropractic Helps Prevent Chronic Pain After an Auto Accident

The science confirms what we see in our office: A British study was conducted on 28 individuals diagnosed with chronic whiplash pain. Each participant received chiropractic care 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 note that research has also found that delaying care after a car crash can negatively affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Matthisen immediately is key to having a quicker recovery.
