Avoiding Chronic Pain After an Auto Injury
Over 2 million people are injured every year in motor vehicle collisions in the U.S. While some people are able to recover from their injuries fairly easily, many are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Noblesville office. Thankfully, Dr. Dahlager 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 carried out on 28 men and women diagnosed with chronic whiplash pain. Each participant received chiropractic treatment 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 delaying treatment after a car crash can negatively affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Dahlager as soon as possible is key to having a speedier recovery.
