What causes long-term pain after a car crash?

Downtown St. Louis, MO neck pain and headache treatmentApproximately 2.3 million people are injured each year in motor vehicle collisions in the U.S. While most people are able to heal from their injuries relatively quickly, many are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Downtown St. Louis, MO office. Fortunately, 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 people diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. 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 is a great way to avoid long-term pain after a crash.

It's important to remember that studies have also found that putting off treatment after a car crash can negatively affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Holland as soon as possible is key to having a speedier recovery.
