Accident & Pain Relief of St. Louis Logo

Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt every year in auto accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to recover from their injuries relatively easily, many folks are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our North St. Louis, MO office. Thankfully, Dr. Holland is here to help you heal 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 care 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 chronic pain after an auto injury.

It's important to note that studies have also found that delaying treatment after a car crash can adversely affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Holland as soon as possible is key to having a quicker recovery.

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