Approximately 2.3 million people are injured each year in automobile accidents in the U.S. While most people are able to heal from their injuries fairly easily, many folks are left to deal with chronic pain and disability. We see many of these patients here in our Shawnee office. Thankfully, Dr. Isom 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 individuals diagnosed with chronic whiplash syndrome. Each participant received chiropractic care 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 chronic pain after a crash.
It's important to note that research has also found that delaying treatment after a car crash can adversely affect healing time, so getting in to see Dr. Isom as soon as possible is key to having a speedier recovery.
Dr. Isom has worked with many auto injury sufferers, and we're here to help you, too. Call our Shawnee office today for more information or an appointment.
