According to a number of studies, almost half of the people who suffer from whiplash due to an auto injury accident will deal with chronic side effects for months and even years. Worse yet, if the symptoms have not been relieved within three months of the crash, there is a high likelihood that they will never go away (90% never recover). However, one study reveals that regular visits to your Beaverton chiropractor may just change that.
For purposes of their study, researchers looked at 28 individuals who were diagnosed with whiplash and reported to be in pain as a result. Most had received the whiplash more than a year prior and they ranged from having no pain at all to having symptoms that were disabling, more being in the latter group than in the former. The results were astounding.
Although traditional research says that a mere 10% should have experienced relief, which would have been two or three people, a whopping 93% felt better after receiving chiropractic care even though it was several months after the initial incident. Seventeen of the original 28 participants were even able to stop treatment altogether.
