Over 2 million people are injured each year in motor vehicle collisions in the U.S. While some people are able to recover from their injuries fairly easily, too many people are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Yakima office. Fortunately, Dr. Kroner 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 conducted on 28 individuals diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. 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 is a great way to avoid long-term pain after a crash.
It's important to remember that studies have also found that delaying care after a car crash can negatively affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Kroner at the earliest opportunity is key to having a speedier recovery.
