Causes of Chronic Pain after Car Crashes

Aloha / Beaverton, OR neck pain and headache treatmentOver 2 million people are injured every year in automobile accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to recover from their injuries fairly easily, too many people are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Aloha / Beaverton, OR office. Thankfully, First Choice Chiropractic & Rehabilitation PC 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 conducted on 28 men and women 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 is a great way to avoid chronic pain after an auto injury.

It's important to note that research has also found that putting off treatment after a car crash can adversely affect healing time, so getting in to see First Choice Chiropractic & Rehabilitation PC at the earliest opportunity is key to having a speedier recovery.
