What causes persistent pain after a car crash?
Approximately 2.3 million people are injured each year in motor vehicle collisions in the U.S. While most people are able to recover from their injuries relatively quickly, many are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Jacksonville, FL office. Fortunately, Dr. Michael Chanatry 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 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 an auto injury.
It's important to remember that studies have also found that delaying treatment after a car crash can adversely affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Michael Chanatry at the earliest opportunity is key to having a quicker recovery.
