Causes of Chronic Pain after Car Crashes
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 fairly easily, too many people are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Hazelwood & Florissant, MO office. Fortunately, Dr. Mark Holland is here to help you recover 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 conducted on 28 men and women 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 a crash.
It's important to remember that research has also found that putting off treatment after a car crash can negatively affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Mark Holland immediately is key to having a quicker recovery.
