Chronic Pain, Car Crashes, and Chiropractic

Over 2 million people are hurt every year in motor vehicle collisions in the U.S. While most people are able to heal 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 Aloha, Beaverton office. Fortunately, First Choice Chiropractic & Rehab is here to help you recover from your auto injury.

The science confirms what we see in our office: A British study was conducted on 28 men and women diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. Each participant received chiropractic care 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 an auto injury.

It's important to remember that studies have also found that putting off care after a car crash can adversely affect healing time, so getting in to see First Choice Chiropractic & Rehab immediately is key to having a speedier recovery.

First Choice Chiropractic & Rehab has helped many auto injury patients, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Aloha, Beaverton office today for more information or an appointment.
