Chronic Pain, Car Crashes, and Chiropractic
Over 2 million people are hurt every year in motor vehicle collisions in the U.S. While some people are able to recover from their injuries relatively easily, too many people 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 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 men and women 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 is a great way to avoid long-term pain after an auto injury.
It's important to note that research has also found that putting off care after a car crash can adversely affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Holcombe at the earliest opportunity is key to having a quicker recovery.
