Chronic Pain, Car Crashes, and Chiropractic
Over 2 million people are hurt each year in auto accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to heal from their injuries relatively easily, others are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Pinole office. Thankfully, Dr. Jung is here to help you heal 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 individuals diagnosed with chronic whiplash pain. Each participant received chiropractic adjustments and 93 percent of them found 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 research has also found that delaying treatment after a car crash can adversely affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Jung at the earliest opportunity is key to having a quicker recovery.
