What causes persistent pain after a car wreck?
Over 2 million people are hurt every year in motor vehicle collisions in the U.S. While most people are able to improve from their injuries relatively easily, many are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Pinole office. Thankfully, Dr. Jung is here to help you recover from your auto injury.
Research Proves 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 people diagnosed with chronic whiplash pain. Each participant received chiropractic care 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 is a great way to avoid long-term pain after a crash.
It's important to remember that research has also found that putting off care after a car crash can adversely affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Jung as soon as possible is key to having a quicker recovery.
