Causes of Chronic Pain after Car Crashes

Lincoln neck pain and headache treatmentOver 2 million people are injured every year in motor vehicle collisions in the U.S. While most people are able to heal from their injuries relatively quickly, too many people are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Lincoln office. Thankfully, Dr. Kallio is here to help you recover from your auto injury.

Research Proves 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 people diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. Each participant received chiropractic treatment and 93 percent of them experienced improvements 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 a crash.

It's important to remember that studies have also found that delaying care after a car crash can adversely affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Kallio at the earliest opportunity is key to having a quicker recovery.
