Avoiding Chronic Pain After an Auto Injury
Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt every year in auto accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to heal from their injuries relatively easily, many folks are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Sunnyvale & San Francisco, CA office. Fortunately, Dr. Stern 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 conducted on 28 men and women diagnosed with chronic whiplash pain. Each participant received chiropractic care 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 an auto injury.
It's important to note that studies have also found that putting off treatment after a car crash can negatively affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Stern immediately is key to having a speedier recovery.
