What causes persistent pain after a motor vehicle accident?
Approximately 2.3 million people are injured each year in automobile accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to recover from their injuries fairly quickly, others are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Mandeville office. Fortunately, Dr. Schulz is here to help you heal 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 individuals diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. Each participant received chiropractic care 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 putting off treatment after a car crash can negatively affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Schulz immediately is key to having a quicker recovery.
