What causes persistent pain after a car wreck?
Approximately 2.3 million people are injured every year in motor vehicle collisions 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 Asheville office. Thankfully, Dr. Myers 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 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 is a great way to avoid chronic pain after an auto injury.
It's important to note that research has also found that delaying care after a car crash can adversely affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Myers at the earliest opportunity is key to having a quicker recovery.
