Over 2 million people are hurt each year in auto accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to recover from their injuries relatively quickly, many folks are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Napa, CA office. Fortunately, Dr. Roxann Bettencourt, DC is here to help you recover from your auto injury.
Research Shows 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 men and women diagnosed with chronic whiplash pain. Each participant received chiropractic adjustments 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 long-term pain after an auto injury.
It's important to remember that research has also found that putting off treatment after a car crash can negatively affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Roxann Bettencourt, DC immediately is key to having a speedier recovery.
