Over 2 million people are injured each year in motor vehicle collisions in the U.S. While most people are able to heal from their injuries fairly quickly, many folks are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Alexandria office. Luckily, Dr. Wagner 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 men and women diagnosed with chronic whiplash pain. Each participant received chiropractic treatment and 93 percent of them found 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 long-term pain after an auto injury.
It's important to note that studies have also found that putting off treatment after a car crash can adversely affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Wagner as soon as possible is key to having a speedier recovery.
