Causes of Chronic Pain after a Car Crash
Over 2 million people are injured every year in automobile accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to heal from their injuries relatively quickly, many are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our South Buffalo office. Thankfully, Dr. John Nowak is here to help you heal 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 people diagnosed with chronic whiplash pain. Each participant received chiropractic treatment 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 a crash.
It's important to remember that research has also found that putting off care after a car crash can adversely affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. John Nowak as soon as possible is key to having a speedier recovery.
