How Chiropractic Can Help You Avoid Chronic Auto Injury Pain
Approximately 2.3 million people are injured each year in automobile accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to heal from their injuries relatively quickly, others are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our St. Louis, MO office. Thankfully, Dr. Holland is here to help you heal from your auto injury.
Research Proves 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 care and 93 percent of them found 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 a crash.
It's important to remember that research has also found that delaying treatment after a car crash can negatively affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Holland at the earliest opportunity is key to having a speedier recovery.
