Chronic Pain, Car Crashes, and Chiropractic

Chronic Pain, Car Crashes, and Chiropractic

Portland auto injury recoveryOver 2 million people are injured every year in motor vehicle collisions in the U.S. While most people are able to heal from their injuries fairly quickly, many folks are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Portland office. Thankfully, Dr. Helton 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 conducted on 28 individuals diagnosed with chronic whiplash pain. Each participant received chiropractic care 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 an auto injury.

It's important to remember that studies have also found that putting off treatment after a car crash can adversely affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Helton immediately is key to having a speedier recovery.
