Chronic Pain, Car Crashes, and Chiropractic
Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt every year in automobile accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to heal from their injuries relatively quickly, others are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Stamford, CT office. Thankfully, Dr. Banc 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 individuals diagnosed with chronic whiplash pain. Each participant received chiropractic care 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 remember that studies have also found that putting off care after a car crash can adversely affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Banc at the earliest opportunity is key to having a quicker recovery.
Dr. Banc has worked with many auto injury sufferers, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Stamford, CT office today for more information or an appointment.
