Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt every year in automobile accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to recover from their injuries fairly quickly, many are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our North County, St. Louis, MO office. Thankfully, Dr. Mark Holland is here to help you recover 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 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 care is a great way to avoid chronic pain after an auto injury.
It's important to note that studies have also found that putting off care after a car crash can negatively affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Mark Holland at the earliest opportunity is key to having a quicker recovery.
