Avoiding Chronic Pain After an Auto Injury

Over 2 million people are hurt each year in automobile accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to heal from their injuries relatively quickly, many folks are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Henderson, NV office. Fortunately, Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda is here to help you recover from your auto injury.

The science confirms what we see in our office: A British study was conducted on 28 men and women diagnosed with chronic whiplash pain. 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 chronic pain after a crash.

It's important to note that research has also found that delaying treatment after a car crash can negatively affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda at the earliest opportunity is key to having a speedier recovery.

Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda has worked with many auto injury patients, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Henderson, NV office today for more information or an appointment.
