Causes of Chronic Pain after a Car Crash
Over 2 million people are injured every year in automobile accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to recover from their injuries relatively easily, 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 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 pain. Each participant received chiropractic treatment and 93 percent of them experienced pain 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 an auto injury.
It's important to remember that studies have also found that delaying treatment after a car crash can negatively affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Roxann Bettencourt, DC at the earliest opportunity is key to having a speedier recovery.
