Chronic Pain, Car Crashes, and Chiropractic
Over 2 million people are injured each year in automobile accidents 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 Philadelphia office. Fortunately, Bridesburg Spine and Injury Clinic is here to help you recover from your auto injury.
Research Shows 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 people diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. Each participant received chiropractic treatment 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 long-term pain after an auto injury.
It's important to note that research has also found that putting off treatment after a car crash can adversely affect recovery time, so getting in to see Bridesburg Spine and Injury Clinic at the earliest opportunity is key to having a quicker recovery.
