Causes of Chronic Pain after a Car Crash
Over 2 million people are injured every year in auto accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to heal from their injuries fairly easily, many folks are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Downtown St. Louis, MO office. Fortunately, Dr. Holland 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 carried out on 28 individuals diagnosed with chronic whiplash pain. 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 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 recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Holland immediately is key to having a speedier recovery.
