Over 2 million people are injured each year in auto accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to recover from their injuries fairly quickly, others are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Portland office. Thankfully, Dr. Helton 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 men and women diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. Each participant received chiropractic adjustments and 93 percent of them experienced pain relief following their adjustments, even though 43 percent of whiplash sufferers overall usually never find relief. This confirms that chiropractic is a great way to avoid long-term pain after a crash.
It's important to note that research has also found that putting off treatment after a car crash can negatively affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Helton immediately is key to having a quicker recovery.
Dr. Helton has helped many auto injury patients, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Portland office today for more information or an appointment.
