Causes of Chronic Pain after Car Crashes
Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt each year in motor vehicle collisions in the U.S. While some people are able to heal from their injuries fairly quickly, many folks are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Mt Sterling office. Luckily, Dr. Linton is here to help you recover 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 individuals diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. 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 is a great way to avoid chronic pain after a crash.
It's important to note that studies have also found that putting off treatment after a car crash can adversely affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Linton at the earliest opportunity is key to having a speedier recovery.
