Causes of Chronic Pain after Auto Injuries
Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt each year in auto accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to recover from their injuries fairly quickly, many are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Depew office. Fortunately, Dr. Palmer is here to help you heal 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 pain. Each participant received chiropractic adjustments and 93 percent of them found 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 delaying care after a car crash can negatively affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Palmer at the earliest opportunity is key to having a speedier recovery.
