Over 2 million people are hurt each year in car accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to recover from their injuries relatively quickly, many folks are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Sunnyvale & San Francisco office. Fortunately, Dr. Stern is here to help you heal from your auto injury.
The science confirms what we see in our office: A British study was conducted on 28 men and women 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 is a great way to avoid chronic pain after a crash.
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. Stern at the earliest opportunity is key to having a quicker recovery.
Dr. Stern has worked with many auto injury patients, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Sunnyvale & San Francisco office today for more information or an appointment.
