Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt every year in motor vehicle collisions in the U.S. While some people are able to recover from their injuries relatively easily, too many people are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Jacksonville and Fleming Island, FL office. Thankfully, Select Health and Wellness 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 carried out on 28 individuals 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 care is a great way to avoid long-term pain after a crash.
It's important to remember that research has also found that delaying care after a car crash can negatively affect recovery time, so getting in to see Select Health and Wellness at the earliest opportunity is key to having a speedier recovery.
