Approximately 2.3 million people are injured every year in auto accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to recover from their injuries relatively quickly, many are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Yakima office. Fortunately, Michael J. Covington DC-PS 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 people diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. 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 long-term pain after a crash.
It's important to remember that research has also found that putting off treatment after a car crash can negatively affect healing time, so getting in to see Michael J. Covington DC-PS at the earliest opportunity is key to having a speedier recovery.
Michael J. Covington DC-PS has worked with many auto injury patients, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Yakima office today for more information or an appointment.
