Causes of Chronic Pain after Car Crashes
Over 2 million people are injured every year in motor vehicle collisions in the U.S. While some people are able to heal from their injuries fairly easily, many folks 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 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 carried out 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 is a great way to avoid chronic 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 recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Dahlager immediately is key to having a quicker recovery.
