What causes long-term pain after a car wreck?
Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt each year in auto accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to heal from their injuries fairly quickly, many are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Harrisburg office. Fortunately, Dr. Blake 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 conducted on 28 men and women diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. 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 note that studies have also found that delaying care after a car crash can negatively affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Blake as soon as possible is key to having a speedier recovery.
