What causes long-term pain after a motor vehicle accident?
Approximately 2.3 million people are injured each year in auto accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to heal from their injuries relatively easily, many are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Arlington, VA office. Fortunately, 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 men and women diagnosed with chronic whiplash pain. Each participant received chiropractic adjustments 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 care is a great way to avoid chronic pain after an auto injury.
It's important to remember that studies have also found that delaying care after a car crash can adversely affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Holcombe as soon as possible is key to having a speedier recovery.
