Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt every year in auto accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to heal from their injuries fairly quickly, many are left to deal with chronic pain and impairment. We see many of these patients here in our Kettering office. Fortunately, Dr. Poelking is here to help you heal 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 adjustments 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 is a great way to avoid long-term pain after a crash.
It's important to remember that studies have also found that delaying treatment after a car crash can negatively affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Poelking immediately is key to having a quicker recovery.
Dr. Poelking has worked with many auto injury patients, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Kettering office today for more information or an appointment.
