Chronic Pain, Car Crashes, and Chiropractic
Approximately 2.3 million people are injured every year in car accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to heal from their injuries fairly easily, others are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Noblesville office. Fortunately, Dr. Dahlager 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 care 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 chronic pain after a crash.
It's important to remember that research has also found that putting off care after a car crash can adversely affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Dahlager immediately is key to having a speedier recovery.
