Causes of Chronic Pain after Auto Injuries
Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt each year in car 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 impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Waldorf, MD office. Thankfully, Dr. Lipsitz 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 syndrome. 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 note that research has also found that putting off treatment after a car crash can negatively affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Lipsitz immediately is key to having a quicker recovery.
