Causes of Chronic Pain after a Car Crash
Over 2 million people are hurt every year in car accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to recover from their injuries relatively easily, others are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Parma office. Fortunately, Dr. Baker is here to help you recover 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 people diagnosed with chronic whiplash pain. Each participant received chiropractic adjustments and 93 percent of them experienced pain 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 remember that research has also found that putting off treatment after a car crash can negatively affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Baker immediately is key to having a speedier recovery.
