Chronic Pain, Car Crashes, and Chiropractic
Over 2 million people are injured each year in motor vehicle collisions in the U.S. While most people are able to recover from their injuries fairly easily, many are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Sacramento office. Thankfully, Dr. Armstrong 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 conducted on 28 individuals diagnosed with chronic whiplash pain. 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 long-term pain after an auto injury.
It's important to note that studies have also found that delaying treatment after a car crash can negatively affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Armstrong as soon as possible is key to having a quicker recovery.
