Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt every year in car accidents in the United States While most people are able to improve from their injuries relatively quickly, many are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Decatur office. Fortunately, Dr. Harrison is here to help you recover from your auto injury.
The science confirms what we see in our office: A British study was carried out on 28 men and women diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. Each participant received chiropractic treatment 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 treatment is a great way to avoid chronic pain after an auto injury.
It's important to remember that research has also found that putting off care after a car crash can negatively affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Harrison at the earliest opportunity is key to having a quicker recovery.
Dr. Harrison has worked with many auto injury patients, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Decatur office today for more information or an appointment.
