What causes long-term pain after a motor vehicle accident?
Over 2 million people are hurt every year in car accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to heal from their injuries relatively quickly, many are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Philadelphia office. Thankfully, Bridesburg Spine and Injury Clinic is here to help you heal 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 men and women diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. Each participant received chiropractic adjustments and 93 percent of them experienced improvements 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 remember 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 immediately is key to having a speedier recovery.
