Avoiding Chronic Pain After an Auto Injury
Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt every year in auto accidents 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 Greater Portland, ME office. Fortunately, Dr. Jay Woodward & Dr. Abby Power 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 adjustments 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 chronic pain after a crash.
It's important to note that research has also found that putting off treatment after a car crash can adversely affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Jay Woodward & Dr. Abby Power at the earliest opportunity is key to having a quicker recovery.
Dr. Jay Woodward & Dr. Abby Power has worked with many auto injury patients, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Greater Portland, ME office today for more information or an appointment.
