How Chiropractic Can Help You Avoid Chronic Auto Injury Pain

Over 2 million people are hurt each year in car accidents in the U.S. While some people are able to heal from their injuries relatively easily, many folks are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our San Angelo office. Fortunately, Dr. Tim Pittman 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 pain. Each participant received chiropractic adjustments 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 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 care after a car crash can negatively affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Tim Pittman immediately is key to having a speedier recovery.

Dr. Tim Pittman has worked with many auto injury sufferers, and we're here to help you, too. Call our San Angelo office today for more information or an appointment.
