What causes chronic pain after a motor vehicle accident?
Over 2 million people are hurt each year in auto accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to recover from their injuries relatively quickly, too many people are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Henderson, NV office. Fortunately, Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda 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 people 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 care is a great way to avoid chronic pain after an auto injury.
It's important to remember that research has also found that delaying care after a car crash can negatively affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda as soon as possible is key to having a speedier recovery.
