What causes chronic pain after a car crash?
Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt every year in automobile accidents in the U.S. While some 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 Harleysville, PA office. Fortunately, Dr. Szilagyi 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 conducted on 28 men and women diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. Each participant received chiropractic care 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 note that studies have also found that delaying care after a car crash can adversely affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Szilagyi at the earliest opportunity is key to having a quicker recovery.
