What causes persistent pain after a car wreck?
Approximately 2.3 million people are injured every year in motor vehicle collisions in the U.S. While some 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 St. Louis, MO office. Thankfully, 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 conducted on 28 individuals diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. 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 long-term pain after a crash.
It's important to remember that research has also found that delaying treatment after a car crash can negatively affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Holland as soon as possible is key to having a quicker recovery.
