Chronic Pain, Car Crashes, and Chiropractic
Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt every year in automobile accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to recover from their injuries relatively easily, others are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Arlington, VA office. Thankfully, Dr. Holcombe is here to help you heal from your auto injury.
Research Shows 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 is a great way to avoid long-term pain after an auto injury.
It's important to note that research has also found that delaying care after a car crash can adversely affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Holcombe as soon as possible is key to having a quicker recovery.
