Avoiding Chronic Pain After an Auto Injury
Over 2 million people are injured every year in car accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to recover from their injuries fairly quickly, many are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Portland office. Thankfully, Chiropractic Healing Hands For You is here to help you heal from your auto injury.
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 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 long-term 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 Chiropractic Healing Hands For You as soon as possible is key to having a quicker recovery.
Chiropractic Healing Hands For You has helped many auto injury patients, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Portland office today for more information or an appointment.
