Personal Injury / Auto Accidents
If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident (MVA) make an appointment with the doctors at Danbury Chiropractic and Wellness for a thorough examination. You do not want to ignore your pain associated with trauma. A study by Freeman et al. (1) found that 45% of the entire American population that had chronic neck pain attributed the cause of their pain to a previous automobile accident. Having pain is a symptom that something needs to be taken care of in your body. Ignoring your pain can lead to further problems in the future, including chronic pain.
Individuals choose chiropractic care for treatment of injuries sustained in MVA’s because chiropractic care is exceptional in the treatment of soft tissue injuries, especially of the spine. Since the most common injuries associated with MVA’s are sprains and strains of the spinal muscles and ligaments, it’s only natural that chiropractic be the treatment of choice. Many studies have also found individuals injured in MVA’s prefer chiropractic care for the treatment of their injuries. One such study evaluated 190 whiplash injury victims and found those who received chiropractic care reported treatment satisfaction of 100%. 1. Balla JI, Iansek R.
