How Chiropractic Can Help You Avoid Chronic Auto Injury Pain
Approximately 2.3 million people are injured each year in auto accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to heal from their injuries relatively quickly, others are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Portland office. Fortunately, Chiropractic Healing Hands For You is here to help you recover from your auto injury.
The science confirms what we see in our office: A British study was carried out on 28 men and women diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. Each participant received chiropractic care 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 long-term pain after an auto injury.
It's important to note that studies have also found that putting off treatment after a car crash can adversely affect healing time, so getting in to see Chiropractic Healing Hands For You immediately is key to having a speedier recovery.
Chiropractic Healing Hands For You has worked with many auto injury sufferers, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Portland office today for more information or an appointment.
