What causes chronic pain after a car crash?

Memphis neck pain and headache treatmentApproximately 2.3 million people are injured each year in auto accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to recover from their injuries fairly quickly, many folks are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Memphis office. Thankfully, Dynamic Chiropractic is here to help you heal 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 conducted on 28 individuals 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 long-term 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 Dynamic Chiropractic as soon as possible is key to having a speedier recovery.
