What causes persistent pain after a car wreck?
Approximately 2.3 million people are injured each year in car accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to heal from their injuries relatively quickly, many are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Killeen, TX office. Fortunately, Dr. Dorn 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 treatment 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 chronic pain after a crash.
It's important to remember that research has also found that delaying care after a car crash can negatively affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Dorn immediately is key to having a quicker recovery.
