Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt every year in car accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to recover from their injuries fairly easily, many are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Kettering office. Thankfully, Dr. Poelking 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 people diagnosed with chronic whiplash pain. Each participant received chiropractic care 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 is a great way to avoid long-term pain after a crash.
It's important to note that studies have also found that delaying care after a car crash can adversely affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Poelking as soon as possible is key to having a speedier recovery.
Dr. Poelking has worked with many auto injury sufferers, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Kettering office today for more information or an appointment.
