Avoiding Chronic Pain After an Auto Injury

Downtown St. Louis, MO auto injury recoveryOver 2 million people are injured every year in automobile accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to recover from their injuries fairly quickly, others are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Downtown St. Louis, MO office. Thankfully, Dr. Holland is here to help you heal from your auto injury.

Research Shows 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 men and women 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 chronic 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. Holland at the earliest opportunity is key to having a speedier recovery.
