Approximately 2.3 million people are hurt each year in motor vehicle collisions in the U.S. While most people are able to recover from their injuries relatively quickly, many folks are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our San Angelo office. Thankfully, Dr. 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 syndrome. 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 care is a great way to avoid long-term pain after an auto injury.
It's important to note that research has also found that putting off care after a car crash can negatively affect recovery time, so getting in to see Dr. Pittman as soon as possible is key to having a quicker recovery.
Dr. Pittman has worked with many auto injury patients, and we're here to help you, too. Call our San Angelo office today for more information or an appointment.
