What causes persistent pain after a car crash?

Gadsden, AL neck pain and headache treatmentApproximately 2.3 million people are injured every year in car accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to heal from their injuries relatively easily, many are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Gadsden, AL office. Thankfully, Gadsden Family Chiropractic is here to help you heal 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 individuals diagnosed with chronic whiplash pain. Each participant received chiropractic adjustments 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 care is a great way to avoid chronic pain after a crash.

It's important to remember that research has also found that delaying care after a car crash can adversely affect recovery time, so getting in to see Gadsden Family Chiropractic at the earliest opportunity is key to having a speedier recovery.
