Over 2 million people are injured every year in automobile accidents in the U.S. While some 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 Yakima office. Fortunately, Dr. Covington is here to help you heal from your auto injury.
The science confirms what we see in our office: A British study was conducted on 28 men and women diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. Each participant received chiropractic adjustments 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 chronic 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. Covington as soon as possible is key to having a quicker recovery.
Dr. Covington has helped many auto injury sufferers, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Yakima office today for more information or an appointment.
