What causes long-term pain after a motor vehicle accident?
Over 2 million people are hurt each year in automobile accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to recover from their injuries relatively easily, many folks 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 Supports 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 individuals diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. Each participant received chiropractic treatment 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 chronic pain after an auto injury.
It's important to remember that research has also found that delaying treatment after a car crash can negatively affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Holcombe immediately is key to having a speedier recovery.
