Out of all personal injury-related accidents, none send more people to the Emergency Room each year in the United States than automobile accidents. Based on averages, there are approximately 6 million auto accidents in the U.S. every year! Beyond that, over 90 people die every day as a result of car accidents, adding up to over 3 million car accident related injuries every year. Of those 3 million victims, around 2 million will carry some form of permanent injury or pain with them for the rest of their lives.
That is a LOT of pain, and much of it is centralized to the spine, neck, arms, and legs. Fortunately, the structural injuries sustained in auto accidents can very often be treated gently and effectively through the implementation of a customized chiropractic regimen, specific to your unique injuries and pains.
The reason so many people decide to see an experienced chiropractor for treatment of car accident injuries is easy—chiropractic is unrivaled in the treatment of soft tissue injuries, particularly of the back and neck. Chiropractic adjustments are proven to help reduce pain from sprains and strains of the spinal muscles and ligaments. Since those are the most frequent injuries that occur during auto accidents, it makes a lot of sense that chiropractic is the preferred treatment for auto accident injuries.
