Accident & Pain Relief of St. Louis Logo

Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt each year in automobile accidents 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 disability. We see many of these patients here in our North St. Louis, MO office. Fortunately, Dr. Holland is here to help you recover from your auto injury.

The science confirms what we see in our office: A British study was carried out on 28 people 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 an auto injury.

It's important to note that studies have also found that putting off care after a car crash can adversely affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Holland at the earliest opportunity is key to having a speedier recovery.

Dr. Holland has worked with many auto injury sufferers, and we're here to help you, too. Call our North St. Louis, MO office today for more information or an appointment.
